Water has fluctuated with the runoff and warming temps

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

by Doug Busey

Water has fluctuated with the runoff and warming temps. The fishing has been slow for the few anglers that have been up there. Remember that the area above Hangman's bridge is catch and release, artificial lures and flies only with barbless hooks. Look for those deeper pools and head waters. I would also recommend to wait for the sun to hit the water before throwing a line in. This time of year, the fish are very lethargic. Note: downstream from hangman's Bridge is open to artificial lures or flies only. There is a two fish limit, 14 inches or larger.

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.
