The river is running good and the fishing has been very good

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

by Doug Busey

The river is running good and the fishing has been very good. Alpine County just planted 1800 lbs of rainbow trout from the higher bridge down to the Carson River Resort. Small spinners are working well. A few anglers have been using green powerbait or mice tails with good success. Remember that the area from the Carson River resort to theNevada state line is closed due to the  Tamarack fire and the BLM closures in the area.

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.
