The W. Walker derby is ending in a few days and we wanted to get another big fish or two so we spent Tuesday and Thursday on the Walkers with side trips up on the W. Carson.

07/23/13 - Nighthawk and I picked up Jetspray at 0530 and headed south on 395. We arrived at the upper end of the canyon and started fishing. We found fish but nothing big. We fished downstream at several other locations but added only one fish. We then headed north then over Monitor Pass, through Markleeville and Woodsfords to the W. Carson. The river was crowded so we headed up to Hope Valley CG where we had the river to ourselves. We found some fish here as well. For the day we caught 32 trout between on small plastic and eggs.

07/25/13 - We arrived on the West Walker at 0625. We fished from the bridge downstream for a 1/4 mile. The fish that were there Tuesday were gone. Fishing for an 1 1/2 hours we managed only 2 fish. I remembered something I had once heard. "When the fish are not hitting on the Walker try the Little Walker." This turned out to be true. We fish the two 395 bridges for 2 1/2 hours and managed over 200 trout between us. At one point I wanted to try downstream but about 50 yards down the trail I was greeted with the love call of the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake. I changed my plans. When we tired of catching fish we went for lunch then over Monitor Pass again to look at the W. Carson. The weather started going south at Markleeville and by the time we got to the 89 bridge there was thunder, lightning and hail. Back home we went. Tom, Dave it was nice fishing with you guys again. Sorry nothing big this week.

I don't take pictures of my fish most of the time and I do not post photos. I did catch and release all of my 80 catches. Biggest thing for me is no floaters and letting others have a chance of catching those fish again. When we got there it looked like the stocking had gone somewhat badly and there were about 10 dead fish in the water. That saddens me.......Jetspray

No I know you guys probably caught more than 200 but he's a Dodger fan and they are really good right now and my Giant's are not really good right now. Stop yelling at me.
