Fishing has been off the hook good

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

by Doug Busey

 fishing has been off the hook good. Last week it was running clear and at 240 cfs, this week it is still clear and at 164 cfs. Green or yellow powerbait, salmon eggs on a small split shot has been most productive. Elk hair caddis with a copper jon dropper has been most productive for fly anglers. The CDFW planted the river this week with catchable rainbows. Alpine County planted the river last week with larger rainbows. One thing I am tired of seeing is small dead fish laying on the bottom up and down the river. If you do not want to keep the smaller fish, use a barbless hook or use a small spinner. Practice the proper technique of catch and release. Don't forget to stop by the Carson River Resort to have your picture taken with your catch. To go in their book of fame and to be in the next Naw report. For more information, stop by the Carson River Resort.

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.
