The fabulous East Walker River Fly Fishing Report has been very positive since its recent opening. Flowing just outside of Bridgeport, CA, this big fish water is doing what its known for. Showing fly anglers some unstoppable and amazing trout on the end of their line with the possibility of a trout of a lifetime! Flows have been turned up recently to the tune of just over 300cfs. This is a necessary flow for the East Walker during this hot wave we are experiencing as the River temperatures will be subdued with a flow of fast and fresh Sierra water. The famous Miracle Mile has been full of over sized rainbow and brown trout these last few weeks. The East Walker experiences a lot of fishing pressure from the Bishop and Mammoth side as well as the Reno and Tahoe areas. Trout here are not easy to take, they require precision and sometimes require undersized flies for the size and weight of fish she contains. Crowds can be a bit annoying at times but clear out after noon usually. Fish various types of San Juan worms, Midges of all sorts and colors, caddis pupae and mayflies as well. Pods of rising fish can be found as well. These are usually eating active adult caddis on the water.
