Kens Sporting Goods Fishing Report

by Kens Sporting Goods Staff


The East is running at about 722 cfs today. Even with the high water we have talked to a few anglers who have had some success down on the river, we’ve talked to a couple anglers who have been fishing streamers like perch fry and horn bergs and a couple anglers who have been fising nymphs like psycho princes, soft hackles and hare’s ears. It’s very difficult fishing down there right now but it is possible to hook and land some nice fish.  


Unfortunately you can’t get to the Sceirine right now due to the road closure, we’ll keep you posted when we hear anything about the road re-opening.                    


We started getting a few decent reports from the Reservoir this week, mostly fishing from the shore with bait like inflated crawlers, mice tails and power bait. Most of the successful anglers are reporting 1 or 2 fish but we talked to at least one angler who was able to catch a limit with a 6 pounder, a 3 pounder and a few in the 1.5lb range. There have also been several fish in the 5 to 6 pound range both with BFEF tags and without. We’ve also heard rumor that if the weather cooperates they will start filling the reservoir back up by the end of the month.             

KIRMAN LAKE                      

On Thursday we got a call from a customer who hiked up to Kirman and he said the lake is still very frozen, he also mentioned that the survey box where you write down how many fish you caught on your trip there was only about a foot sticking out of the snow. It may be a few weeks before the road up to Kirman is clear of snow and the ice melts, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything new.        

TWIN LAKES                     

The Twins have been the hot spot lately as well as some good fishing on Robinson Creek. We’ve had quite a few good reports from both lakes with anglers getting into some good fish trolling, casting lures and bait from the shore and though it’s been a little hit and miss some anglers have had some good action stripping streamers with their fly rods. There was a 13.5lb brown caught this past week and another 13 pounder we’re hoping to get a photo of soon. In addition to the large browns there has been lots of 3 to 6 pound rainbows being caught up there. Baits to try include power bait, pinched crawlers and mice tails. Kastmasters have been a good lure as well as Rapalas and Thomas Bouyants.                                                     

WEST WALKER RIVER                  

We haven’t heard any rumblings about the West lately, the water is very high and off color so it will likely be difficult to fish for a while. We’ll let you know when the conditions improve.                           

VIRGINIA LAKES                  

The Virginia Lakes Road has not been cleared of snow yet, it may be a while before the road is cleared and you can get up there, again, we’ll let you know when it is accessible.                             

If you would like to receive this report via email, drop me a line at and I'll get you on the list!


Highway 338 in Nevada is still closed to vehicles so the Nevada side of the East Walker is still not accessible. We’ve heard they have started working on fixing the road so hopefully it will be completed soon and re-open. 

The Virginia Lakes road, Buckeye Road and Green Creek Road are still mostly covered with snow, it has been getting warmer so that snow should start melting pretty fast and we’ll keep you updated on those road conditions as they improve. 

The Bridgeport Gun Club is having their annual Gun Rights Dinner on June 3, the Mono County Museum here in Bridgeport will re-open for the season on May 24 and the Bridgeport Motorcycle Jamboree is getting a fresh start on June 9, 10 and 11 this year!
