Re: East Walker River, Bridgeport, CA
you can fish the upper section of the E. walker up to the second fence line, before it turns into private property. you may have some cows to deal with.
I just fished the miracle mile last week. Go early and late in the day. I managed about 5 or 6 browns to 16". (dry dropper rigs) You definitely do not need a float tube for any section of the river.
have fun, and make sure to talk with the guys at Ken's before you head out, they will set you up with what is working that time of the year.
