Flows are Inconsistent on the East Walker but the fishing has been good

Truckee River Outfitters

Report Date:


East Wlaker River Flows are currently at 379 CFS. This has been changing a bunch over the past few weeks mostly due to irrigation. The flows can be very inconsistent in the summer for that reason. The fishing has been pretty good however. Tossing around a big ugly dry fly in the slower water and seems of the main current is a hoot this time of year. You can either do it with a dropper or just a dry. Stoneflies and Hoppers are the best bet.

Nymphing with Caddis and Midges is a nice way to follow it up. At 373 there are not too many places to cross and it can look very inviting to do so. Be careful trying to cross. As long as the flows stay in the 350 area the water should stay cool enough to fish all day.
