Walker Lake, is one of my Favorite Lakes for Fly Fishing.

It's about a 20 minute walk from where you can park and access a trail to the west end of the lake. Mosquito's are fearce, so be aware. Bring a Mosquito net to cover your head and hands, as Repellent does not work on them. The lake is surrounded by lily pads and thick weeds on the inner shore edge. This makes for lots of bugs that the Rainbow Trout feed on and get to be monsters. 10lb Rainbows can be found here, but sometimes the bite is slow as they have so much food in the lake. Schuds can be seen swimming all over the lake. You will see large fish jumping and splashing all day long. Some of these fish have gill lice and this is the reason for them splashing to shake off the lice. This doesn't affect the fish's health. I have eatten fish from this lake, but mostly catch and release.
