Water Level is Fluctuating

East Carson River (CA) - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

EAST FORK CARSON RIVER CALIFORNIA SIDE: The water levels have been fluctuating height and temp wise. This is due to letting some water out of Kinney Reservoir. Which is a good thing to bring the water temps down a little. With our hot weekend coming up. I would recommend fishing very early or later in the evening. Fishing has been very good for anglers throwing nightcrawlers or small spinners. The fly anglers have been nymphing with good results. The CDFW planted the river last week with 500 lbs of catchable rainbows. Alpine County is scheduled to plant the river this week with 2-3 lb rainbows. Fishing should be off the hook. For more information stop by the Creekside Lodge.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
