Carson River West Fork Fishing Report

Carson River - West Fork (CA) - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The fishing has been good in  the Hope Valley area. A report of a lady angler that caught a 9.5 lb rainbow over the weekend. The Woodfords canyon area has some very fast moving waters right now. I would stay between Sorensons Resort and Blue Lakes road area. Alpine County Fish Commission funded by the South Tahoe Public Utility District has planted 800 lbs of 1 to 10 lb rainbow trout last week. The CDFW planted 800 lbs of catchable rainbows.For more information stop by the Creekside Lodge in Markleeville.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
