Spinner Tossers Lay Into River Rainbows
If you like to hook hefty rainbows, head over to the West Walker River for some exciting action.
“The anglers staying here are reporting early limits of rainbows in the 1 to 5 pound range,” reported Pam Hamic of the West Walker Motel. “They’re finding the top action while tossing out Panther Martins and worms in the West Walker near its junction with the Little Walker River. The top two fish weighed in this week went 5.2 and 4.9 pounds.”
The water in both rivers is low, but very fishable. “Anglers have reported hooking some small browns, in addition to nailing rainbows on the Little Walker,” Hamish added.
Large rainbow trout weighing up to 5 pounds will be stocked August 9, just in time for the 1st Annual “Size Doesn’t Matter” Derby set for August 9, 12 pm to August 11, 4pm.
This event is sponsored by the Northern Mono Chamber of Commerce and their new partner Fishsniffer.com, along with the local businesses in the Antelope Valley. A $5.00 entry gets you an entry into the derby that has cash and prizes assigned to each special tagged fish. For more information, go to: http://www.northernmonochamber.com.
Trout fishing continues to be slow on Topaz Lake, with the water dominated by water skiers and recreational boaters now. The Nevada Department of Wildlife advises boaters to troll with Rapalas and nightcrawlers behind dodgers. Shore fishermen have had some success using PowerBait, Power Eggs, salmon eggs, and night crawlers in the early morning hours.
