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

by Doug Busey

The river is running clear with a little green tint. The CDFW is scheduled to plant 1000 lbs of catchable rainbow trout this week. Alpine County planted 900 lbs of 2-6 pound rainbows last week. The river is open to fishing for catch and release with artificial lures or flies only with barbless hooks until April 30th. This is above Hangman's bridge. Below the bridge is open to artificial lures or flies with barbless hooks with a two fish limit of trout 14 inches or larger. The Carson River Resort  is the place to bring in your catch to get a picture taken for the next Naw report. Come celebrate their 100th anniversary with them. Last year was not a good year due to the wildfires. So to make up for all the people and friends they have missed seeing, and those they have not met yet. The resort will be having live music and the return of the Naw-B-Que this summer. 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.
