Gateway to the east walker river

EAST WALKER RIVER          August 13, 2017

The East is still running at about 407 cfs right now and has been fishing pretty good still. At this flow it’s a little tougher than when it’s lower but there are still some good areas to fish that are holding some very nice fish. There’s been a little streamer action but it’s mostly been nymphing. Add some lead to your rig to get your bugs down near the bottom for the best success. Keep in mind that we have some excellent guides available to help you out on the river if you want some help flattening out that learning curve. Patterns to try down there include: fox’s poopah, deep sparkle pupa, z-wing caddis, buckskin caddis, wd-40, Darth baetis, zebra midge, flashback emerger, san juan worm, sculpzilla, jj special, zuddler, dead drift crayfish. 


SCEIRINE RANCH               August 13, 2017 

We didn’t have anyone on the ranch this week, if you want to fish some un-pressured water with no crowds give us a call and we can get you on there!!


HUNEWILL POND               August 13, 2017

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              August 13, 2017   

Bridgeport is still off the hook! The best thing going is the bait fishing over in Buckeye Bay, mice tails, power bait, crawlers and pinched crawlers are sll doing well, lots of fish up to almost 7 pounds being caught over there! There’s also a little bit of trolling going on though you will need to pay close attention to your gear to make sure you don’t get your lures weeded up, as long as you keep them clean you should be able to get into some nice fish with rapalas, speedy shiners, crawlers and tazmanian devils. Haven’t heard much from fly anglers though you should be able to get into some fish either stripping streamers or stillwater nymphing in the channels in Buckeye Bay.  


KIRMAN LAKE                           August 13, 2017

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


TWIN LAKES                      August 13, 2017

The Twins are still kicking out some very nice fish with some tipping the scales at around 6 pounds. It seems to be the best either fishing from shore, still fishing from boats or float tubing. The trolling has been a little tough lately though there are still some fish being caught this way. Fly anglers are using wooly buggers, matukas, soft hackles, zug bugs and pheasant tails. Bait anglers are going with power bait, pinched crawlers, night crawlers and mice tails. Lures to try include Thomas bouyants, speedy shiners and rapalas.  


WEST WALKER RIVER                          August 13, 2017  

The West is now flowing at just over 400 cfs and is getting better and better every day, water clarity is good and though it’s still just a little bit high there are plenty of fish to be had up there. Lures to try include panther martins, mepps and rooster tails, baits anglers are using salmon eggs, power eggs and crawlers. Fly anglers are still going mainly with nymphs like prince and pheasant tails but the dry fly fishing should start getting good as the flows come down a bit.   


VIRGINIA LAKES                     August 13, 2017  

The Virginias are still fishing very well with lots of nice fish being caught with bait, lures and flies. Bait anglers are using power bait, crawlers and mice tails, lure anglers are going with thomas bouyants, rooster tails and kastmasters. Fly anglers are using seal buggers, mini leeches, matukas, soft hackles, prince nymphs and hares ears.
