The rains last weekend muddied up the river for a few days. By Tuesday the river was much clearer and the fish that were planted last week by Alpine County were coming off the bottom to feed.. Orange Powerbait or salmon eggs were most productive. Fly anlgers were had the best success on a cooper jon in the faster waters. The CDFW also planted the river a couple weeks ago with catchable rainbows. For more information, stop by the Carson River Resort.

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.
