West Walker fishing is affected by the lower than usual water. Fish the nice runs & deeper pools

The West Walker is also low; however there remains some decent runs and pools in the Pikel Meadow section. Dry dropper combos work well here. Use a Stimulator and a broken back tiger or zebra and you will get grabs in the deeper pools and runs. The fish are concentrated in these locations due to low flows. Walk into the canyon up or down from Pikel and cast to wild fish with #16-18 mayflies or caddis imitations. I like a para post BWO or Adams, hi-vis caddis, or PMD's are also good choices for dries here. Fish upstream when possible, the fish spook easily.
