Planted by Alpine County last week with 900 pounds of 12" to 4 pound trout. I would recommend fishing the weekdays if you can. Weekends have been extremely crowded. I would like to wish a happy 60th birthday to fellow angler Rocky Walling. Rocky caught a nice brown trout while fishing the river last weekend. A special gift for Rocky, as well as a gift he gave back after releasing it. Most anglers have been using powerbait in the deeper holes, I used a small silver spinner in the faster moving waters last weekend and caught and released a few. Gary Cronheart was fly fishing last week with a hares ear and had good success.

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.
