The river is running high and muddy

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

by Doug Busey

The river is running high and muddy. Use caution as they do have construction on the bridge in Markleeville and just past Hangman's Bridge. The road is open up and over Monitor Pass. Cal/Trans is working to get Highway 4 open from Monitor Pass to the Wolf Creek area. The Carson River Resort is open for RV, Tent Campers, and cabin rentals. The general store is packed and ready for all the things you forgot to bring. On a very sad note, my favorite place to eat in Markleeville, "The Mad Dog Cafe," may be closing soon for reasons the owner could not disclose to me. I hope whatever it is, it can be worked out. No fish plants are scheduled until mid-June. 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.
