West Carson River (CA) - Woodfords, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The river is running low at 315 to 350 CFM. The CDFW recently planted the river with catchable rainbow trout. The Alpine F&G will be planting the river next week with larger rainbows. Fishing has been good for anglers using half a crawler or a salmon egg and a split shot. Special note. The tributary that comes into the west fork by Picketts Jct called Willow Creek, is open to catch and release only with artificial lures or flys 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.
