East Walker is infested with perch. They have been blowing through the dam in large numbers for months. The only upside is that the small disoriented ones make a great meal for a hungry trout. I really love to fish streamers in the east walker so my buddy Charlie Bisharat tied me up a couple really nice perch patterns. When the time was right and the light was dropping, i tied that sucker on and threw it out there in a hole where i know some huge browns hang out. Twitch twitch twitch and wham. I thought for sure from the strike i had a fatty brown, then all of a sudden just dead weight. It was a dam perch! Cannibals! I did pull a couple nice browns on streams that day, but all the perch caught was another perch. It'll happen Charlie, i promise.
