Fishing Reports

EAST WALKER RIVER          July 22, 2017

Well, if all you EW fans are watching the flows at all you’ll notice they’re down quite a bit, to around 550! This is pretty good news for the river! We haven’t had too many reports yet but the ones we’ve had are starting to look up. This flow is definitely a better flow for anglers. The water could fluctuate quite a bit for a while but I think as long as it stays below around 600 the fishing should be pretty good. The reports we have received the anglers did the best with midge and caddis nymph patterns under indicators. There’s also a good number of rainbows being caught, many of which probably came from the reservoir through the dam. Patterns to try include: zebra midge, flashback emerger, rainbow warrior, prince, dark lord, fox’s poopah, buckskin caddis, 3 wire caddis. 


SCEIRINE RANCH               July 22, 2017 

We haven’t had anyone on the ranch this week but when the flows start to come down we expect the fishing to be excellent down there! 


HUNEWILL POND               July 22, 2017

We only had one client on the pond this week, he reported good fishing though at first he was fishing in some weedy areas but when he found a couple areas where the weeds werent as bad he started hammering fish. He fish mainly soft hackles. Other patterns to try include:  mayer’s mini leech, stillwater nymphs, seal buggers,  zug bug, flashback emerger, zack attack leech. 


BRIDGEPORT RESERVOIR              July 22, 2017   

Bridgeport is still the hot spot lately as long as you have a boat or kayak. We haven’t had any good reports from the shore but the fishing over in Buckeye Bay is excellent. Bait anglers have been using mice tails, pinched crawlers, night crawlers and power bait. The weeds over most of the lake are growing so it’s making the trolling a bit more difficult but if you pay attention to your lures and keep them clean you should be able to pull some nice fish. Rapalas, thomas bouyants, speedy shiners and crawlers are all good to troll with. This week we’ve seen numerous fishin the 3 to 6 pound class with one tipping the scales at 8 lb 10 oz. 


KIRMAN LAKE                           July 22, 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                      July 22, 2017

The Twins are also kicking out some nice fish with a few going over 6 pounds this week. The trolling has been pretty good with rapalas, thomas bouyants and kastmasters, bait anglers are using mice tails, crawlers and powerbait. Fly anglers are having success with matukas, buggers, seal buggers, soft hackles, zug bugs and prince nymphs.  


WEST WALKER RIVER                          July 22, 2017   

The West is starting to come down a bit but is still fairly high and off color, not chocolate milk off color but not clear yet. I’d say that over the next  couple weeks it should shape up pretty nicely. As we start getting reports in we’ll let you know! 


VIRGINIA LAKES                     July 22, 2017  

The Virginias are a little hit and miss from what we’ve been hearing, probably due to the colder water temps up there. Some of the successful anglers we’ve talked to have been using mice tails and night crawlers, kastmasters, panther martins and thomas bouyants and the fly anglers have been catching fish on matukas, soft hackles, seal buggers and leech patterns.
