Large Brown held up by an Man in a Mustache on the bank of the RIver


The East Walker has been doing what it does best– consistently kick out Big Fish! The flows have stabilized at a perfect rate of 150cfs and the water is as clean as it gets on tne East Walker. Access is open and weather is very pleasant. A great BWO hatch comes off as well with many flies over the water. Some response is seen in the upper sections of the river but the fish downstream prefer not to feast on these guys recently. Some perch were pushed through as the river was recently pumped up to 300cfs but only the larger bird-eaten ones remain. The perch feed is not on yet as it was this time last year forcing the fish to feed heavily on aquatic bug life. However, there is baitfish in the water so large streamers have been working great as always on this true quality water. For the nymphs use; #16-22 Tiger and Zebra patterns. Chironocones in #18-20 red, black, olive.. WD-40’s in varied colours #18-22, BWO Emerger patterns, Halfback BWO emerger patterns and poxy back BWO emergers all in sizes #18-22’s are good patterns to try.. Bunny streamers such as; Slumpbusters, Zonkers, rock knocker sculpins and various other patterns in lighter colours fished correctly will get you into fish! Thie fishery will only get better as the spring weather warms up bridgeport and the surrounding areas… Get ready for a great year here…
