East Carson River Report

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

by Doug Busey

The river is running at 120 CFM this week. The water is clear but still running fast for this time of year. The fishing has been fair for anglers using night crawlers or throwing #4 Panther Martin spinners. Ruthie Menor  and Asley Rivas took a trip up a week ago and camped at the Carson River resort without the boys (as they said) and did very well. Ruthie caught a 3.7 lb rainbow and Ashley caught a nice 5.5 lb rainbow . Both were using night crawlers. CDFW plated the river 2 weeks ago with 500 lbs of catchable rainbow trout. For more information or to have your picture taken. Stop by the Carson River Resort, they are open all year long.

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.
