Fishing Reports

EAST WALKER RIVER         October 27, 2019

The East is still running at about 140 cfs and is fishing very well. It’s been mostly nymphing though there has been some good streamer action as well. With the flows down where they are it has made it much easier to get your flies down to where the fish are hanging out.  Most of the anglers we’ve talked to have been doing well in the Miracle Mile section as well as the lower section from the bridge to Murphy’s Pond. We’ve also had some good reports from the Rosachi section on the Nevada side as well. There has been a good amount of traffic down there this past week, the weather has been great and there’s been quite a few anglers enjoying the good fishing. 

Patterns to try: Blow torch, rainbow warrior, rainbow assasin, zebra midge, flashback emerger, wd-40, micro mayfly, San Juan worms, squirmy wormy’s, top secret midge, pheasant tail, copper John, zuddler, Dali Lama, sculpzilla, jj special, moal leech, double bunny. 

SCEIRINE RANCH                  October 27, 2019

The ranch has also been fishing very well, most of the bugs listed above have been doing well and they’re still eating some rubberlegs and other stonefly patterns down there too. Reservations have been solid on the weekends but there’s been availability on the weekdays if you want to book some time down there.      

HUNEWILL POND                    October 27, 2019

We didn’t have any anglers on the pond this week but with the colder weather the weeds should be going away and the fishing should be pretty good by now. The leech fishing should be good with small leeches like a Mayers mini leech as well as slow stripping some soft hackles or small damsel patterns. Give us a call if you want to book some time on the pond! 

BRIDGEPORT RESERVOIR                    October 27, 2019

Again this week the Reservoir was hit and miss, and a little tough overall. There were some nice browns caught, some up to 5 pounds though the rainbows have been pretty shy lately. There were a few fish caught from shore down near the Bathtub but again, not too many. Some fish were caught bait fishing off of Rainbow Point and there were also some fish caught trolling Thomas Bouyants, night crawlers, small Rapalas and needlefish. If you get out there and put some time in you should be able to get into some nice fish but it certainly hasn’t been red hot lately.          

KIRMAN LAKE                                October 27, 2019

We didn’t get any reports form Kirman this week, if we hear anything we’ll try to let you know.     

TWIN LAKES                          October 27, 2019

The Twins seemed to liven up a little bit this week with some nice rainbows up to nearly 6 pounds making a showing. We haven’t seen any hog browns come out yet but with the weather changing for the worse that could certainly change. Some of the nice bows were caught trolling as well as bait fishing, it seemed the best trolling lures were Rapalas and Thomas Bouyants and the best baits were inflated crawlers and pinched crawlers. As with last week the anglers who had the most success were moving around a lot until they found an area where there were some fish biting.              

WEST WALKER RIVER                           October 27, 2019

We didn’t hear much from the West again this week but the few report we did hear were ok. There were some fish being caught in the Pickle Meadows area as well as down through the Canyon section. Bait anglers caught some fish with salmon eggs and mini crawlers while some of the lure anglers had some success with Panther Martins and Rooster Tails. There were a few anglers we spoke with who caught some fish with prince nymphs, soft hackles, copper johns and dark lords.   

VIRGINIA LAKES                         October 27, 2019

We’ve had some good reports again from the Virginias lately, mostly Little Virginia and Trumbull. There have been some good reports from the shoreline as well as tubers. Mini jigs have done well, also small streamers for the fly anglers. Bait anglers have done well with garlic power bait, pinched crawlers and mice tails.

Oct. 20, 2019 - Deer season is over now, it seemed to be a pretty good season for most of the hunters, we’ll have to wait to see what the success rate was but we definitely saw some really good bucks come in. Duck/goose season is now open in our area. Traffic has slowed down quite a bit in the area now, as it usually does this time of the year. The Fall colors are starting to hit the ground so if you want to see any of that this year you should do it right away.
