West Walker River Fish Report

As the flows on the west keep coming down the fishing keeps getting better and better! Lots of nice fish are being caught in the Pickle Meadows area as well as the canyon section. It’s still just a little too high for the good dry fly action but it shouldn’t be long before you can get after it with a hopper/dropper rig! Bait anglers are using nightcrawlers and salmon eggs, lure anglers are using mepps, panther martins and thomas bouyants. Fly anglers are using soft hackles, prince nymphs, pheasant tails and hare’s ears.  


East Walker River Fish Report

The East is down to about 340 cfs right now and is starting to fish pretty well. It seems it’s still just a little high for some anglers but there are lots of anglers who are able to fish it at this flow and do very well. Nymphing has been the main thing going on but there has been a few good reports on streamers. You’ll still need a little extra lead to get your bugs down but as long as you’re near the bottom you should be able to catch some nice fish. The Miracle Mile section is still fishing the best, I’d look forward to the lower section below the bridge getting better when the flows go below 300. Patterns to try include: darth baetis, silver streak, rainbow warrior, pheasant tail, dark lord, zuddler, sculpzilla and moal leech. 


Virginia Lakes Fish Report

The Virginias are still kicking out some nice fish every day with some up to almost 5 pounds! There are also some nice native brooks being caught up there as well. Bait anglers are using mice tails, pinched crawlers and night crawlers, Lure anglers are going with thomas bouyants, rooster tails and kastmasters. Fly anglers are using matukas, seal buggers, wooly buggers, soft hackles, pheasant tails and beetles on top. 


Twin Lakes Fish Report

The Twins are fishing very well lately, fly fishing, trolling and bait fishing. There are lots of nice fish being caught with some up to around 5 pounds being caught. Bait anglers are using powerbait, mice tails and pinched crawlers. Fly anglers are using wooly buggers, twin lakes specials, seal buggers, mini leeches, soft hackles and zug bugs. Trolling has been good with rapalas, Thomas bouyants and night crawlers. 

Sceirine Ranch Fish Report

The ranch fished very well over the weekend, lots of nice fish caught mainly on caddis nymph patterns like buckskin caddis, lafontaines sparkle pupa, fox’s poopah. There was also some good action on san juan worms, rainbow warriors, prince nymphs and pheasant tails.


Kirman Lake Fish Report

No reports from Kirman this week, if you have any information from up there and want to pass it on it would be appreciated! 


Hunewill Pond Fish Report

The pond has gotten pretty weedy as of late so we’re going to try to get it cleaned up, when we do we’ll get some reports to you asap!


Bridgeport Reservoir Fish Report

Bridgeport is still fishing excellent up in the Buckeye Bay Area, as well as out in a little deeper water. There’s also been a few anglers reporting decent catches trolling as well. Haven’t heard much from the fly anglers though there should be some good stillwater nymphing as well as streamer action if you get over to the bay and fish in the channels. Bait anglers are using pinched crawlers, powerbait, mice tails and night crawlers. Lure anglers are going with thomas bouyants, rapalas, speedy shiners and crawlers.
