                             EAST WALKER RIVER - July 07, 2021
The weather here in the Bridgeport area has warmed up quite a bit the last couple days which has caused Bridgeport Reservoir and the East Walker to also warm up, I think we’ve reached the point now where it’s going to be best to stay off the river for the time being, for the health of the river and of course the fish. The long range forecast looks like it’s only going to get hotter, with only a very slight chance of any thunder storms in the near future which doesn’t bode well for the water temperatures. We will keep monitoring the conditions on the river and let you know when it gets safe for the fish, this may take 6 to 8 weeks if the weather doesn’t change before then, but for the time being we are going to advise our clients to find cooler streams to fish and let the East have a rest.

The stock truck did not arrive this week, so we may be on an every other week schedule and if I hear different I'll post it.

Starting temperature was warm with some slight cloud cover. Bring mosquito repellent, they're hungry and it's been a lean 18 months. Everyone in the county has been very grateful for the high elevation thunderstorms as it has put more water into the ground and the lakes, reservoirs, and streams. Hopefully it's enough to deter any possible fires.

The stock truck arrived again Friday, July 2 with 600 pounds, that's 4 weeks in a row with 3300 pounds of trout. I'm blown away with, it's like 1990 all over again. The parking lot was full by 7:30am and the lake was a flotilla of cheerios for a total of 27 watercraft.

BAIT: Powerbait (salmon peach, garlic and fluorescent orange) and Night crawlers are running neck in neck for the first spot in bait, then power worms, micetails and pinched crawlers.

LURES:. Red/gold Buoyant, silver/blue Kastmaster, Silver Super Duper 501, O gold Mepps, bleeding frog Buoyant, Taz Devil Floating Rapala's, mini jigs, jig heads etc.

FLY AND BUBBLE: Green body mosquitoes are still the number one fly for over a week but California mosquito is getting a lot of air time too, prince nymph, black gnat parachute, Griffith's Gnat, Adams female, grey hackle yellow, and grey hackle peacock.

FLY RODS: Streamers, dark and blue adult damsels , hoppers, prince nymph, and emergers. Great hatches the last few days, dark mayflies (duns), blue damsels, with Thursday's midges overwhelming the area. June bugs are out and hissing. Also try the X-Caddis without a dropper, even some flash tri-color buggers, and crystal flashes. Bring it all, close your eyes and pick something. Tie it on and you'll probably do well. You will not have a problem catching, although it may be small, it's a trout, and it's a heck of a lot of fun.

NOTE: If the trout bleeds don’t throw it back into the lake, it will die and IT ATTRACKS BEARS. If you care about the resource please be careful when releasing fish back into the water.
