River is Running Very Well For This Time of Year

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

by Doug Busey

The river is running very well for this time of year. I had a report of a 3 and a 5 lb rainbow caught last week. I am glad they did not have a photo, because right now it is catch and release with artificial lures or flies only. On April 24th, the regulations change to a five fish limit and bait, lures or flies will be allowed. The Alpine County Fish and game commission planted the river this week with 900 lbs of nice sized rainbow trout. On or after April 24th, bring in your catch to the Carson River Resort to get your picture taken for the Naw hall of fame and their personal book of fame. The general store is open for all the fishing and camping items you need. I would call ahead to make reservations to stay. They offer camping on the river, RV full hook ups and old log cabins with some modernizations of comfort. For more information call 530-694-2229.

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.
