Destinations: East Walker River, California
The East Walker River is one of the best trout streams in the states of California
and Nevada. It's a tailwater that flows from Bridgeport Reservoir. The dam
releases water that stays a fairly constant temperature and that provides good
fishing throughout most of the year. There are special regulation in effect that
helps protect the stream's trophy trout.

The river contains both brown and rainbow trout, but the prime species is the
brown trout. The river flows through both low and steep declines with flats and
canyon sections of water. Most all of the water is accessible in the state of
California. The water in Nevada flows through both private and public fishing
areas.

A variety of methods and techniques are used to fish the East Walker River.
With the different types of water and constantly changing water levels, you must
be willing to change strategies very often. There are times dry fly fishing is good
but most of the time, nymphs and streamers outperform the dry flies.
