Silver Lake in the June Lake Loop or go for the big browns at one of the Twin Lakes out of Bridgeport.

We usually go to the area in front of the Carson River Resort, great fishing.

We usually go to the Carson if the water's not to high or off color. We'll probably end up at Caples or Silver lake this year. I'll always give Todd a call at the resort and see what's happening before we head over. Good luck!

Usually go to the west walker, fishing is suposed to be good. water levels are pretty good and water is moving not fast. Carson should be good on 4/30

My first choice would be close to home on the W. Carson but all depends on water flows, Hope Valley access and what is stocked. Two alternatives would be Bridgeport Res or Lower Twin. I'll do a scout trip in a week or so.

I like to head up to Kennedy Meadows near Sonora Pass and fish about a mile in past all the cabins and hoopla. They usually plant the heck out of the Stanislaus here. Not sure how it will be this year. Normal years the flow slows into nice pools on many of the turns. this year a catcher's mitt might be better than a rod. Silver and red Panther Martins, Rooster Tails or salmon eggs all work well.

I am actually going to fish the Emigrant Wilderness,i.e. cherry creek forks, emigrant lake, huckleberry lake, gem lake, etc.

Leavitt creek above the falls just south and west of the USMC mountain warfare training camp. GREAT brookies! Also Walker river where leavitt creek empties has big holdover stockers at times.

Better wait until 4/30 when the fishing season actually opens.

We are going to the Clarks fork section all the way back to the end then hike in for about a mile. Wont get anything huge but there are nice brookies and bows in the deeper pockets that eat dries flies all season long.

Hey. It's tradition. Probably have to use 1 oz sinkers to get your offering down on the rivers.

Ahh yes, the days of A family of 6 having everyone try one hole. Those are the good days, that's why I'm only saying the river I fish on. Not any more specific. :tasman::rotfl2:
