East Carson River Fish Report

by Liz Weirauch

Flows average: 126cfs, about 70 cfs below median. Nice flows, and clear. NDOW stocked a couple of weeks ago at the bridge at Rhuenstroth. The water is running about 66 degrees, and being clear, start being a little more sneaky (yes, this is a fishing terminology :) Dead Drift Red Copper Johns, Golden stones, little yellow stones, zebra midges, or San Juans. Dry fly action should always include a dropper of a zebra midge, hare's ear, caddis pupa, make it a stimulator or grasshopper a cripple caddis or ant.
