With current annual snowpack at 168%, the Carson drainage is likely to remain high with melt well into June. High water tactics will be the key to success over the next several months. Look for fish in slower moving water and along protected banks. Fly fisherman high sticking small bright streamers and dark nymphs are likely to find the occasional fish. Spin fisherman should find success with bright rapalas and dark spinners in deep slow moving water. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on flows this time of year, early spring rainstorms and exceptionally warm days can really bump flows quickly to dangerously high levels.
