The fishing regs have changed

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

by Doug Busey

The fishing regs have changed to catch and release with artificial lures or flies with barbless hooks. It does get mighty cold up there. But when Renee and I fished the last day of the regular season. There were plenty of big fish still left in the river. And we released all of our catches. The Carson River Resort is open all year with cabin rentals. Fish in the mid morning, and sit by the river with a campfire by evening.

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.
