Carson River Trout Fishing Boosted By Plants
Trout fishing at Caples Lake has been “little slow,” but John Voss at Caples Lake Resort noted that is “nothing is unusual for August.”
Fortunately, a recent plant by the Department of Fish and Wildlife boosted the rainbow trout action on the East and West Forks of the Carson River, so Geoff and his wife Donna drove the 15 miles over the hill to the Carson.
“He and Donna went to work, casting in salmon eggs and worms,” said Voss. “ They caught and released more fish than they could count when he saw a big rainbow. Geoff reported making his cast, letting the worm drift down, and Fish On! That trout weighed 3-1/2 pounds.”
Fishing has been slow at Lower Bear River Reservoir, though persistent anglers are hooking a few rainbows and browns.
“My husband, Ron, landed and released two 10 inch browns and while fishing worms off the dam on his latest angling adventure,” reported Meredith Cissna of the Bear River Lake Resort.Back To Reports
