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

by Doug Busey

The river was running at 270 CFS this week. The water has cleared up after the weekend rains. Micah Case from Carson City caught a 4.98 lb rainbow using a spinner last week.  Other anglers have done well with powerbait or salmon eggs. The Alpine County Fish and Game planted the river last week with 1600 lbs of catchable and trophy trout. If you are successful on your next trip, stop by the Carson River Resort to get your picture taken.

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.
