River Level is Low and Water Temps Are Rising

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

by Doug Busey

The rivers are low and the water temps are rising. Alpine county is scheduled to plant the river this week. But if the temperatures are too high, they will move the plant to Alpine Lake on highway 4. Anglers have still been catching those 2-6 lb rainbows that have been planted over the last month. Best bite has been early in the morning before the heat of the sun drives them to the bottom and they put on their masks. For more info, stop by the Creekside Lodge.

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.
