East Carson River (CA) Fish Report for 1-21-2022
The river was running good and clear
East Carson River (CA) - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)
by Doug Busey
The river was running good and clear. Open to catch and release with artificial lures and flies only with barbless hooks. Todd Collart was fishing last week, he was using a red body copper jon and caught and released four nice rainbows between 16 to 20 inches. Most of the snow has melted along the banks of the river, but always use caution on your footing. For more information, stop by the Creekside Inn.
CDFW special note and regulation change: Artificial lure is defined as. section 1.11 of the CDFW code. Any manufactured or man made non scented/flavored ( regardless if scent is added in the manufacturing process or added afterwards) device completed with hooks intended to attract fish. Mice tails are not allowed to be used until open season has begun on specified waters of artificial lures only.
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.
