Fishing Has Been Good On The Carson

Carson River - Carson City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been good on the Carson with flows around 200 cfs. A few BWO/Baetis mayflies are hatching in the afternoons and midge can be seen all day. Fishing should continue to be good in the usual spots until the spring melt begins. High water tactics will be the key to success coming up as flows start to increase. 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.
