East Carson River Fishing Report

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

by Doug Busey

The river is running perfect, the flows have lowered and fishing has been on fire. That may be due to the 2000 lb of 2 to 5.5 lb rainbow trout that Alpine County has planted over the last two weeks. Best action has been with Thomas Buoyant spoons or small silver spinners. Powerbait or salmon eggs has been productive as well. For more information stop by the Creekside Lodge. If you want to get your picture taken, stop by the Chamber of Commerce office in downtown Markleeville. They are looking for smiling faces with trout.

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.
