The East Walker River, below Bridgeport Reservoir, has long been a popular destination for the avid fly angler. In years past, the fast riffles and deep, powerful runs of this section were rated, in terms of fish per mile, one of California’s top trout streams. Easily accessible as it flows alongside Highway 182, from Bridgeport to the Nevada state line, this section offers serious nymph and streamer anglers opportunities to catch trophy rainbow or brown trout, especially if they avoid the weekend crowds. Types of Fish: Rainbow and brown trout and mountain whitefish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
