Carson River West Fork Fishing Report

Carson River - West Fork (CA) - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The flow are perfect in the Woodfords canyon area. Fishing has been good for those that do not mind a little hike. Drifting salmon eggs into the lower holes have been most productive. Alpine county planted the river last week with 800 pounds of 12" to 4 pound trout. The CDFW planted the rivers last week as well. I would recommend starting at the east side of Hope valley and work back across the meadow. Word to the wise, do not cast a shadow on the water or your luck in that hole will be done.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
