West Walker River (CA & NV)

A typical freestone stream the West Walker can have some great fishing, but can also be hit hard with runoff. Pockets, pools and riffle’s define this river as it meanders down from the mountains by Hwy. 108 through Pickle Meadows. Later by Hwy. 395 the river runs into a canyon offering excellent pocket water fishing. Eventually the river flows through some ranch land where access is tough and into Topaz Lake. Browns and rainbows mostly inhabit the river and there is some stocking through the season. In California the river opens the last Saturday in April and closes on November 15. Bait and barbed hooks may be used with a five fish limit, but we encourage catch and release whenever possible. Be sure to check our website for up to the date fishing reports and stream flows.
