Bridgeport Fish Report

Kens Sporting Goods Staff

Report Date:


The East Walker is running at about 90 cfs today, the flows have been going up and down a bit this past week but it hasn’t seemed to hurt the fishing at all. We haven’t had too many reports from the river lately but the ones we have received have mostly been pretty good. There has started to be a little bit of streamer action and even a fish caught here and there on dries but it remains mostly nymphing. The weather is getting warmer so it’s good to be out there a little earlier than during the winter and there has been some good action late in the evening as well.

Patterns to try: WD-40, rainbow warrior, scud, top secret midge, psycho prince, soft hackle, squirmy wormy, san juan worm, zebra midge, red-headed stepchild, silver streak, flashback emerger, zuddler, moal leech, seal bugger, sculpzilla, chubby Chernobyl, stimulator, BWO, blue dun, parachute adams.


The ranch has been very good lately as well, it’s starting to get booked up quite a bit in advance lately so if you want to spend some time down there be sure to give us a call ahead of time to see if there’s any room on the calendar. They’re still hitting some stoneflies on the ranch as well as most of the usual nymphs and midges.


We haven’t had anyone on the pond lately but it should be pretty good out there. The Ranch has an aquaculture license to operate out there so it is not affected by the trout opener delay, great place to “ social distance”!!


Opening Day may or may not be June 01, 2020

We haven’t heard anything from the West lately but with the warmer weather we’re having things could be getting better, as long as the snow isn’t melting too fast and blowing out the river.


Opening Day may or may not be June 01, 2020

It’s been made official, the trout opener has been postponed until June 1, 2020, at least for now. We hear there is a possibility it could open sooner than that but of course this probably means that there is a possibility it could open later. We’ll try to keep you updated as best we can with the changes that are occurring. The order for postponement states that waters that are open now will remain open but with regular winter regulations to remain in effect, this means that the East Walker and the winter section of the West Walker will still be open for catch and release, artificial barbless fishing while all other waters in our area will be closed.
