Over the last couple of weeks the CFS has gone from 180 to 2000 and back down to 200 due to the rains we had last week. As a note, the Alpine Chamber of Commerce has donated $40K for fish plants for the rivers in Alpine County. A big part of your fishing experience, and they are not done. Renee and I fished last week for a couple days. We did have to do some walking but I tell you. We caught and released over 15 fish each day. The fish averaged 12-14 inches with the exception of three that Renee caught in the 2 pound class. We used 1/8 ounce black and silver or yellow and silver Panther Martin spinners. Powerbait was hot for many anglers, but if you are going to catch and release use the small spinners. If you use Powerbait, your fishing adventure may be over sooner than you wanted fish. Fly fishing was good using a copper jon with a a black wooly bugger. The water has cleared up and fishing has been very good. For more information stop by the Creekside Lodge.

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 [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
