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

by Doug Busey

The river is running clear with a little stain on it. This week it was running at 1150 CFM and may go higher this weekend. Fishing has been fair to good for anglers that don't mind a little hike. Spinners, mice tails or nightcrawlers have been most successful. In faster moving waters, ditch the powerbait and use power eggs. They are just as productive and would come off your hook every few casts Alpine County F&G has scheduled a plant for next week. For more information, or to get your picture taken with your catch. Stop by the Carson River Resort.

There are a lot of rafters and kayakers on the river right now. Be aware of them and use a little courtesy as they pass by.

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.
