Trout tips for Walker and Carson Rivers
9/08/11 -- The Anglers Edge in Gardnerville reports fishing on the West Walker River through the canyon is good on Olive Buggers. The East Walker, which runs East out of Bridgeport Reservoir, is still running high at 200 cfs. and is impossible to cross. Even with the high water on the East Walker the fishing is good but the fish are spread out.
While fishing the Walkers try heading northwest on Hwy. 89 or Hwy. 88 to Markleeville and fish the Upper East Carson. Fishing there is good with fish being planted by the DFG. Anglers using Olive or Black Buggers are keeping busy with rainbows. The Lower East Carson is slower due to lower water temperature. Both sections of the East Carson are C&R so take are in releasing the fish. Both rainbows and brown trout are available on the East Carson as well as the Main Carson River.
Remove the barbs, practice C&R and keep a tight line.
