Flows dropped to 335 CFS as of this week and is clearing up nicely

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

by Doug Busey

The river flows had gone up last week due to the rains they had, But has dropped to 335 CFS as of this week and is clearing up nicely. The CDFW planted the river last week. The Alpine County Fish Commission planted the river recently with 1 to 5 lb rainbow trout. Salmon peach or chartruesegreen powerbait has been  most productive. I personally like to throw a Thomas Buoyant spinner in the faster waters. Those bigger fish like the faster water and a spinner gets them off the bottom a little better. For more information or to get a photo of your catch. 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.
