River is Running Low But Fishable

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

by Doug Busey

The river is running low, but very fishable. In fact, the CDFW will be planting the river this weekend with 1000 pbs of catchable rainbow trout. Alpine County will also be planting the river this weekend with 1800 lbs of 2 to 8 lb trout. The weather will be perfectly fall like, and the bite should be good. Salmon eggs or powerbait will be most productive. Small spinners have been productive in the deeper waters or the faster  moving waters. For more information, stop by the Creekside Inn.

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.
