Walker River Atlas

Jeanine Jones | June 1, 1992
Summary

The Walker River has its headwaters in California’s high Sierras north of Mono Lake and terminates in a desert lake in Nevada. The Walker is a relatively small river by California standards, in places resembling more stream than river, but is an important water source to arid western Nevada. The river’s existence is best known to local residents and to devotees of trout fishing; travelers through the eastern Sierras are more apt to be familiar with the celebrated attractions of Lake Tahoe to the north and Mono Lake to the south.
