East Walker River

Anglers come from all over the country each year to try their luck against the wiley browns and rainbows of the East Walker River. The East Walker is located just 5 miles North of Bridgeport on Highway 182 and crosses into Nevada about 7 miles further for another 8 or 10 miles of great fishing on the Nevada side of the border. The East Walker has much to offer anglers in the way of wild trout fishing. Just in the last couple of years the  river has produced rainbows up to 9 pounds and browns over the 13 pound mark! Each Year many anglers report having 20 to 40 fish days with a good number of these fish being in the 18 to 24 inch range.

The "EW" has special regulations, artificial flies or lures only, barbless hooks, from November 16 to the last Saturday in April the limit is zero, the rest of the year the limit is one fish over 18". These special regulations are just one of the many things that help th make the East walker a world class trout stream.

The EW is a tailwater river beginning at the dam on Bridgeport Reservoir and flowing North to Nevada and eventually on to Walker Lake near Hawthorne, NV. This river grows an intense amount of food for trout to live on including 8 or 10 different types of forage fish as well as many different types of insects. 

Ken's offers licenses and information for both the California and Nevada sides of the river, any flies and tackle you could possibly need to help your time on the river to be successful. If you would like to hire a guide to help get you dialed in on the river, Andrew Sears and Scott Freeman of Walker River Outfitters are both available and book right through Ken's. Also, if you're interested in something a little more private, Ken's is the booking agent for the Sceirine Ranch which is a private section of the East Walker on the Nevada side of the border, Scott and Andrew are both fully licensed to guide on the Nevada side as well.
