Bridgeport Fish Report - April 18, 2021

Report Date:

East Walker River

The East Walker on the California side will re-open on April 24, 2021. If you are not happy with the recent regulation changes I would urge you to contact the Fish and Game Commission and let them know how you feel. I recently wrote the Commission as well as the Governor, hopefully we can get through to them just how devastating the new regulations are, especially doubling the limit during the regular season and allowing barbed hooks during the regular season. 

Governor Newsome contact:

Fish and Game Commission email:

The Nevada side is still hitting pretty good with stonefly nymphs as well as small midge patterns and still some dry/dropper rigs. Still haven’t heard anything about streamers but I think they should start taking some dead drift crayfish or sculpzilla type patterns soon. Some other patterns to try: rainbow warrior,  dark lord, soft hackle, psycho prince, chubby Chernobyl and San Juan worms. 

Sceirine Ranch

The Sceirine is still fishing very well these days, lots of nice browns and some rainbows being caught down there. They’re still taking stones and midge patterns much like the Rosachi section. Not much news on streamers but again, they should be getting on those pretty soon.    Bridgeport Reservoir

 West Walker River

Didn’t hear much news from the West this week, there is a little snow melting so the river is a bit off color and a little high, but not unfishable. Try some mini jigs or spinners if you’re spin fishing or some attractor nymphs near the bottom if you’re fly fishing.  Virginia Lakes

Fishing season opens April 24, 2021!

 Random Information

This coming Saturday is opening day! The ice on the Virginias is melting pretty quick, I’m not too sure it will be safe to be on the ice by opener, use extreme caution if you’re planning on fishing up there.
