Walker lake, one of numerous saline lakes remaining from a great inland sea that once covered western Nevada and northeastern California, is the seat of a major division of the Paviotso. In the western corner of Nevada it is fed by Walker river, the numerous branches of which head on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada in California. Although there is no outlet, the water is not too saline for the thriving of trout and suckers, which were taken on bone hooks, with double-pointed spears, and in gill-nets.
