Lots of anglers are reporting 15 to 20 fish or more per day on the East Walker River

East Walker River (CA) - Bridgeport, CA

by Jim Reid

Here we are at the end of the first week in April already, where has the winter gone? The river is fishing pretty well right now, it's running at 59 cfs and has been there for the last 3 or 4 days. Still small nymphs on the bottom with a little dry action here and there. With a 59 cfs flow the water is good all the way from the dam clear down to Murphy's Pond. That water below the bridge has some nice riffles and there's plenty of fish hanging out down there. Lots of anglers are reporting 15 to 20 fish or more per day, mainly ranging from about 12 to 18 inches with some going over 18 or 20.

Patterns to fish include: copper john, zebra midge, flashback emerger, pheasant tail, midgeling, rainbow warrior, blue dun, blue wing olive, chubby chernobyl, stimulator, madam-x.
