The California trout opener is in 10 days. I believe I'll open on the West Carson somewhere. I'll start scouting next week. Where will you open?

Anyone doing the Walker?
Can't be there myself, but I want to hear how things are.

Weather permitting, my wife and I will hike (3 miles from the U.S.F.S. Leavitt Meadows Campground) into Roosevelt-Lane Lakes in the Hoover Wilderness Area to fish for Brook and Cutthroat Trout.

My biggest ever Brookie (21 inches) came out of Lane Lake many years ago.

Probably head up the creeks at Lake Sonoma and chase chrome if the wind subsides by then.

One week until the opener. A foot of new snow in Hope Valley last Tuesday and Wednesday but it will melt fast. Weather is projected to be clear and warmer through the opener. River flows are down due to cold nights.

West Walker 211 CFS
East Carson 325 CFS
West Carson 142 CFS.

As of Wednesday some CDOW fished have been stocked in the West Carson.

Just curious, is the west carson open during off season? I'd assume you would have to use barbless if so...

No, the west closes as well, one more week to wait.
