Water Level is Fluctuating

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

by Doug Busey

The water level has been fluctuating with the warming temps over the last few weeks. It has cleared a little and has been clearing up with a green tint to it.   Alpine County has scheduled to plant heavily over the next couple of weeks with good sized rainbow trout.  I would recommend to check with the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce to get more information on the tagged fish contest that will be held this month. They can be reached at 530-694-2475.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
