The Walker River is a river in west central Nevada in the United States, approximately 50 mi (80 km) long. It drains an arid portion of the Great Basin southeast of Reno, with a watershed that extends into the Sierra Nevada mountains. It flows within an enclosed basin, providing the principal inflow of Walker Lake as well as Topaz Lake (West Fork). The river was named for explorer Joseph Reddeford Walker. Its average discharge is about 360 cubic feet per second (10 m3/s). The Walker River consists of the West Walker River, East Walker River, and mainstem Walker River.

The West Walker is best known for its trophy size Rainbow trout (2# to 7#), a small population of German browns and plenty of 8" to 12" Rainbows. Mono County puts a load of Alper trout in monthly and the Northern Mono Chamber also  plant the Alper trout from 2# to 7# range.
