Cooler nights have the trout of the East Walker moving about and eating more to stock up for the long winter ahead. Flows are down to around 90 cfs and steady. Water colour is slightly off which is usual for the East Walker for this time of year.
We have been seeing BIGGER fish eating and moving around recently. Fishing has been great some days and good on others. Don’t be afraid to mix it up with different styles of the same pattern. Caddis sparkle pupa #18, Ascending Caddis #16-20 Gut Instinct #16-20 and Poly Wing Emergers #18-20 in (Cream and Gray) T- Midge emergers in Pearl or Olive #18-22. Bow Warriors #18-22. To change it up a bit more try crayfish patterns or perch fly patterns in sizes #8-12. Tug or nymph these patterns. Further on down the river Prince nymphs, Copper Johns and Stonefly nymphs all sizes #12-16 as well as all mentioned patterns above.
