EAST WALKER RIVER       February 11, 2018

The flows on the East are about 30 cfs right now, even with the lower water the fishing has still been pretty good. Most anglers are reporting anywhere from 5 to 15 fish per day, sometimes more. Most of the action has been with small midge patterns though there has been some decent streamer action as well. The weather has been pretty good though there is a storm blowing in for the next couple days. Most of the reports we’ve had are from the California side but there has been some good reports from the Nevada side as well. There are lots of fish in the 13 to 18 inch range being caught with reports of some up to the mid 20’s being reported most days. 


As you probably know Ken’s is closed on Sundays and Mondays this time of year, next week we will also be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 20 and 21. Very sorry for any inconvenience this causes. 

Recommended Flies:

WD040 in olive and gray, zebra midge, flash bang midge, miracle midge, mercury midge, rainbow warrior, silver streak, micro mayfly, psycho prince, top secret midge, pheasant tail, lite brite prince, flashback emerger, zuddler, sculpzilla, wooly bugger, hornberg. 

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               February 11, 2018

We didn’t get any reports from the ranch this week but with the warmer weather and lower flows it should be fishing great, there are still some stoneflies hatching so you can throw some stonefly nymphs in your fly box to cover that. Give us a call if you want to book some time on the ranch.  


HUNEWILL POND                February 11, 2018

We didn’t get any reports from the pond this week but the weather has still been pretty warm for this time of the year so the fishing out there should be pretty good. As long as it doesn’t get cold enough to freeze the pond over it should hold out for the duration!


BRIDGEPORT RESERVOIR                 February 11, 2018

Closed until April 28, 2018 


KIRMAN LAKE                             February 11, 2018

Closed until April 28, 2018 


TWIN LAKES                       February 11, 2018

Closed until April 28, 2018 


WEST WALKER RIVER                             February 11, 2018

We didn’t get any reports from the West this past week, but again, the weather has still been pretty warm so the canyon section as well as further downstream should be fishing pretty good, small streamers and attractor nymphs should do the trick up there. 


VIRGINIA LAKES                       February 11, 2018 

Closed until April 28, 2018
