 I fished up there last weekend. I had many reports of 2 to 4 lb rainbows coming out of the river. Unfortunately the sky had opened up and turned the rivers into chocolate milk for a few days. I tried all the way up to Wolf Creek with no luck. The Wolf Creek Rd is now open, but a word of caution. Two miles in is now a one lane road. The river has changed its course and is in some places, non recognizable. Also be prepared for some large rainbows to be planted at the end of July by Alpine County. I did receive a report form a reliable source of an 11 lb rainbow caught recently. For more information stop by the Carson River Resort.


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 nevada@fishreports.com. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
