Low flows and increased pressure of "Opening Day" made fishing the East Walker more difficult

The flows on the East are still at 50 cfs today. The river received a lot of pressure this weekend due to the regular season opening up yesterday. It seems as though this made fishing a bit more difficult. The low flows and heavy traffic made it necessary to really be on your game to be successful. We did have some very good reports though from some anglers in spite of the pressure. Most of the anglers that were doing well were nymphing with small midges and caddis nymphs. The water below the bridge and on into Nevada also seemed to fish pretty well for most anglers. Patterns that did well this week include: fox's poopah, buckskin caddis, zebra midge, silver streak, copper john, rainbow warrior, chubby chernobyl, madam x, rubber leg stone, micro stone and poxyback stone.
