I took my first trip up *highway 88 left the house around 445 and was fishing at Caples spillway by 7 Mormon Emigrant trail is wide open. *I fished caples Red west Carson and Silver in that order. *Fished the spillway at Caples for about an hour and a half for 4 fish total all caught on a 1/4 oz kastmaster 2 bow 2 browns. *Then headed to Red fished Red to left of the parking area a little walk. *Threw out rainbow PB on one pole and a kastmaster with the other caught one cut on KM and 3 brooks on PB. *took off to see what the West Carson looked like it was moving fished up Blue lakes road for one small fish. *Took off back to Red had told CC and Jetspray I would be there and wanted to meet them. *Gentlemen it was great chatting with you guys and hunkfisher. *Got some advice on Silver from tham and off I went Silver was hot I was catching a fish every third cast or so on my KM. *What a beautiful area I will be back. *All in all 3 brooks 3 browns 1 cut and a bunch of rainbows. *Here are some pics

Sounds like you gave those 88 waters a good workout! http://www.pic4ever.com/images/29dz8zk.gif

I'm going to have to breakdown and buy some of those kastmasters! http://www.pic4ever.com/images/220.gif

CC is always kicking butt with them! http://www.pic4ever.com/images/karate.gif

Nice job NBTD,
Looking forward to my next trip back up, maybe Sunday. Nice looking day up there and you ran into the right group for advice.

If you know where the MET starts up in Pollock Pines and Hwy 50 area take it straight South/ East. It dead ends at 88 right in between Bear River Reservoir and Silver Lake. If you take a left you will hit Silver in 5 minutes.
Figure about 90 miles from say Douglas & 80 if you go down and take Sunrise to 50 and then head up.

Netting better to do, nice to meet you on Red sorry it had to rain on your parade. CC was giving us lessons on how to fish Red at the time. Today it is a little easy so far but it will get nasty later on weather coming in. Nice pic's too......Jetspray
