Fishing has Been Excellent with Flows Closer to Normal

Carson River - Carson City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

It’s really been an up and down season for the Carson, primarily being up.  Flows remained pretty high till the end of June keeping much of the fishing limited.  Since then, fishing has been excellent with flows closer to normal fall levels now.  The parks and bridges where stocking occurs has definitely been the most consistent option.  Bait fisherman using light lines and leaders drifting salmon eggs are catching regularly.  Spin fishing has been fair with small kastmasters in deeper pools and light spinners in open water.  Caddis have been the name of the game for fly fisherman. Larger caddis dries early and late in the day have made for entertaining fishing.  Try a caddis pupa or larva under a stimulator dry fly during the afternoons.
