The season is far from over

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

by Doug Busey

Renee and I journeyed up for a couple days last week. The water level is low but has many fishable areas. I am hoping the county can get back on its feet after the wildfire that almost took out the town of Markleeville. I am here to tell you, the town is open and they invite you all to come up and fish and celebrate their survival. The season is far from over and with the cooler temps, the fishing only gets better. Renee and I did some walking from on spot to another. We caught and released over 20 fish the first day, all were in the  pan sized range, with the exception of a 7 and a 5 lb trout I lost. The second day we did about the same, but I did catch one in the 4-5 lb class and one in the 2 lb class. 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.
