Just after breakfast, I received through my vast fishing network, news of a stock Monday afternoon by CDFW on the Carsons. Changed my plans for the day and headed up 88. Got about half way up the canyon and traffic was at a complete stop due to road repaving. Turned around and and headed to Crystal Spring. Found the West Carson in beautiful shape. Clear and full of small trout. Had the hole to myself. Caught 10 very small stocker bows. This seems to be all they are stocking from the American Hatchery. Decided to brave the traffic and head up to the 89 bridge. There were few fishing here. I caught 6 bows here. Next I moved up to Hope Valley. Again it was just me and a hole full of small bows. Some other folks showed up and I gave them the spot after 8ows. It was a pretty day on 88 with lots of sun and cool weather. All fish came on small plastics.My only complaint was the hour I spent waiting for CalTrans flag men.

Thanks for the update Captain! I heard there is going to be a stocking of nicer trout by Alpine County this week. I'll be heading up to give it a look on Thursday :)

May get up there Thursday but I'll be at the W. Walker first.
