Water Conditions: Poor
Flows are at 20 cfs as of 11/11
The last day to fish the East Walker River this season is November 15th
Fishing conditions and Hatches:??????????????????
REMEMBER the East Walker last day is the 15th, Monday. The flows are now at the normal levels for this time of year and nighttime temperatures are fairly mild over the weekend so it might be worth checking it out. Word is that hatches have been minimal but right now that's all I've got. Ken's in Bridgeport should have more info. With the flows up a bit and no fears of warm water maybe it's worth giving it another try. Also now that the water clarity has improved the fish will be spookier and won't get handled as much. Maybe a not-so-subtle hint, you can't get phone reception in the canyon so why not leave the phone/camera in the car and just go fishing. I know the saying is "without pictures it didn't happen" but so what. No ideas what's going on but it should be Baetis until it shuts down November 15th, otherwise it's midges and perch fry which should be 1-1/2 to 2 inches.
