Salmon Eggs are the ticket

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

by Doug Busey

The water level has been 30 to 40 CFS over the last couple weeks. Low but still plenty of water to fish. I would recommend with the clear water and bright sun, you will have to do some sneaking up on the fish. If you can see them, they can see you and will not bite. Which can be very frustrating. I would recommend salmon eggs this time of year and let them  drift downstream into those deeper pools.

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.
