Flows are down, fish the deeper pools on the East Walker

Truckee River Outfitters

Report Date:


Flows are down to 33 CFS. Ouch! Irrigation season is over and expect the flows to remain low for the winter. As the water cools the fish tend to really spread out so they do not have to compete as much for food. Cover a lot of water and fish the deeper pools. Small nymphs like Baetis and Midges in size 18-20 are the way to go. Don't be afraid to also use some weight to help get these flies down. Approach your spots from downstream and take your time. Tread lightly and enjoy how beautiful it is on the East Walker this time of year.
