Carson River West Fork Fishing Report

Carson River - West Fork (CA) - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Angler's Edge Fly Shop

The Carson Rivers are at this time of year, considered 'irrigation canals. One week(ish) for watering for the CA side, the next week for the NV side.. Will be stocked this coming week for the Holiday. Maybe even be a lucky shot at a wild or two on an ant pattern.. those little wilds are FAST! Look for the more oxygenated waters to the plunge pools for these speed demons. A note, if you do pick up a wild trout, please let it go, If using bait, just cut the line, no longer are viable trout being stocked. Dries: Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulator , Stone, adams in a 16, Pale Morning Dun mayfly size 14. Nymphs: Hare's ear, PT, Prince nymph (always a go-to!), zebra midges, WD-40.

Flows 17 cfs, running about 10 cfs below normal, and it will receive a bump in flows from storage above in about 2 days.
