    Just got back from a few days fishing around the East Walker River. After receiving minimal info and a somewhat meager report from Ken's Sporting Goods we spent the first day fishing the Scierine Ranch section on the Nevada side. Cold morning with high's around 75. Beautiful day for fly fishing! We caught a decent amount of 12-14 inch fish but lost the few big bites we did get including one Brown that was pushing 20inches. Rubber Legs, San Juan Worms, and light colored Midges size 16-18 were the ticket. Next day we started in the Rosachi Ranch Section with similar results on smaller 10-14 inch fish. Weather was much colder this day with highs around 38 degrees and plenty of frozen guides! Switched to the Miracle Mile in the evening but with the cold temps and the sun over the hillside the bite was slow. One 16" fish in there on a rubberleg. Went back to the Miracle Mile for the next day and a half and the bite began to pick up as the weather stabilized. We ended up getting into some bigger fish with 4 or 5 over 18" including one nice Rainbow in the 22" range and a similar size one lost at the net. Pink San Juan Worms were the ticket here with the murky water. Tightline and under an indicator. Put together a quite little edit of our trip for you guys to enjoy! Still processing some of the footage so stay tuned.....
