Flows on the river bumped up this week to about 35 cfs

East Walker River (NV) - Lyon County, NV (Lyon County)

by Kens Sporting Goods Staff

The California side of the EW is closed until April 30, 2022

I haven’t heard any news from the Nevada side of the EW this past couple weeks. It’s been very cold lately with night time temperatures from around -10 to -18 degrees. They did bump the flow on the river this week to about 35 cfs, this is mainly to keep any anchor ice from forming on the bottom of the river which is very bad for the fish, usually when you see the flows get bumped like that this time of the year it’s because it’s very cold.  Generally speaking, the fishing action tends to get better towards January and February when the weather usually warms up a bit.
