Water level is perfect for this time of year. The fishing has been slow, but should pick up this weekend. With a joint effort from the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce, South Tahoe Public Utility District and the Alpine County Fish and game. The river will be planted with a little over 1000 pounds of 10 inch to 4 pound rainbows. Small spinners are productive, for bait anglers you can't beat a small split shot and a couple salmon eggs. Use caution and watch where you step, there have been a couple rattlesnakes reported in the area of the Carson River Resort. Which by the way is up and in full operation. The fire did take out the storage unit and the miners cabin. But the rest of the resort is ready for Labor Day weekend. For more information stop by the Carson River Resort.
