Carson River East Fork (CA) Fishing Report

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

by Doug Busey

The flows are very good and the river has been fishing well. I fished with an 1/8 once yellow and silver Panther Martin spinner and caught and released 15 nice rainbows. I talked to a few anglers that were using orange Powerbait and had good success. A fly angler told me he did well using a copper jon. The fish are spread out along the river, I would recommend a little walking and fish the faster waters to get more action. For more information stop by the Carson River Resort.

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.
