Fishing Reports

By Jim Reid

EAST WALKER RIVER        January 07, 2018

The East is running at about 140 cfs right now, things haven’t changed too much down there although it seems like the streamer fishing has gotten a little better than it was last week. The weather has been pretty warm compared to a couple weeks ago and the fish seem to be a little more active. Most anglers are still reporting 4 to 6 fish per day, mainly on nymphs and streamers. Still the best time of day to fish is between about 10am and 3pm. 

Recommended Flies:

Zebra midge, flashback emerger, zebra midge, top secret midge, soft emerger, copper John, moal leech, zuddler, sculpzilla, jj special, wooly buggers. 

FYI - The Nevada Department of Wildlife is re-vamping their fishing/hunting license program and will be sending Ken's a computer license terminal in February for our customers to purchase Nevada licenses. During the change over I have been asked to send in all my paper license books on January 1 so they can be reconciled with the department. This means that I will not be able to sell any Nevada licenses for about 4 to 8 weeks after the first of the year. If you're planning a trip to fish Nevada waters during this time be sure to get your license ahead of time, either online or from a Nevada license dealer! I'll keep you posted when my terminal arrives and we're online!


SCEIRINE RANCH               January 07, 2018

We haven’t had anyone on the ranch lately but when we get some reports we’ll pass them on. 


HUNEWILL POND                January 07, 2018

It looks like the pond if frozen for the winter, when the weather warms up in February or March I’ll go check it out to see how the fish fared over the winter.

WEST WALKER RIVER                            January 07, 2018

We didn’t get any reports from the West this past week but driving by there a couple days ago it looks like almost all the ice is gone from the edges of the river in the main part of the canyon, the weather has been warmer this past week so it seems the water temps must be up a bit. If I was going to head up there I’d try some attractor nymphs like prince’s and pheasant tails as well as some small wooly buggers.
