‘Wanted’ Trout Are Still On The Loose
Rainbow trout fishing continues to be good for anglers tossing out flies, spinners, Power Eggs nightcrawlers and other offerings into the East Walker and Little Walker rivers - and there are some "wanted" trout still hanging out in the river.
"We had a great show of fisher folk lining the river waiting for the 12 pm start time in our recent Size Doesn't Matter Trout Derby," said Pam Hamic of the West Walker Motel. "The fish were 2 to 4.5 pounds, were feisty and only let 11 anglers land them."
"I did hear a few stories of 'I all most had it' and they saw the tags but fish would not bite," she reported. Anglers who landed tagged rainbows included Burl Brown, Erika and Shawn Osteen.
"The wanted tagged fish still are still in the river," said Hamic. "All who participated in the first derby can still bring in the tag to claim the ransom money bounty. Let’s see these elusive bandits get caught! See the wanted posters around town and claim your bounty at Walker Country Store."
"The West Walker River is flowing clear and steady and is perfect for fly and other types of fishing," said Hamic.
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.Back To Reports
