The river is a little high, but very fishable. Also a different story in coloration. With our cooler temperatures the river has a green tint and will be stocked by CDFW. Alpine County will be stocking close to 4000 lbs of rainbow trout over the next week. Fishing has been very productive for anglers using power bait or drifting a night crawler close to the bottom. Salmon eggs has also been working well. For those tossing spinners, you might want to use a little heavier lure to get it off the top of the water. For more information stop by Todd's Bait and Tackle.

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.
