West Carson River Fishing Report

West Carson River (CA) - Woodfords, CA (Alpine County)

by Angler's Edge Fly Shop

The Carson Rivers are at this time of year, considered 'irrigation canals. One week for watering for the CA side, the next week for the NV side.. with these lower flows, it certainly looks like the CA side. This should be stocked next week, depending upon flows and water temps. Walk away from your vehicle to get into some of the left-overs that haven't been taken out. Maybe even a wild or two on an ant pattern.. those little wilds are FAST! A note, if you pick up a wild trout, please let it go, If using bait, just cut the line, no longer are viable trout being stocked. Dries: Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulator , Stone, adams in a 16, Pale Morning Dun mayfly size 14. Nymphs: Hare's ear, PT, Prince nymph (always a go-to!), zebra midges, WD-40.

Flows 31 cfs, running about 10 cfs below normal, and it received a bump in flows from storage above about 2 days ago..
