Angler lifts large Brown Trout from the waters of the East Walker river while Fly Fishing

Classic East Walker Brown Trout meets Fly Angler!

The fabulous East Walker is showing signs of its glorious past as a massive flowing and fish producing piece of water. Currently running at an incredibly fishy flow of around 60-65cfs despite huge summer flows… water is clean and healthy! From the origin of the river at the spillway down to the Nevada line the East Walker is giving up some of its hefty specimens to the more advanced angler. Fishing the all classic SJ worm variations and well as a myriad of Midges, Baetis and Caddis has been working for different anglers on different days. Some dry fly action is noted but not consistent. Streamers fished correctly will almost certainly make your day with a hand jolting strike.  Stay tuned for the East Walker Fly Fishing accelerate as Autumn and Winter take over the Eastern Slope of the Sierra.
