Water Levels Have Come Up With the Warming Temps

West Carson River (CA) - Woodfords, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The water level has come up with the warming temps. Right now, the river is open to catch and release with artificial lures or flies only until April 23rd. On the 24th, regulations change to a five fish limit  and you will be allowed to use bait, lures or flies with barbed or barbless hooks. Alpine County Fish and Game Commission has planted the river this week with nice sized rainbow trout from Woodfords to Hope Valley. With the hold overs and this recent plant, fishing will be outstanding.

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.
