    Not sure how they would close it? Barricade both ends of Airport Road? Put signs around the lake? I avoid fishing ICR July - September because of the weeds. It always gets a little dicey this time of year. It is my understanding that this is the first year that the lake has been tested. Water levels are up and the temps down some compared to last year. Things will clear up in October and the lake probably frozen by Christmas.

    Some worms, leeches, insects are there too, but most we find is snails on shore. Maybe they should chew their food better......Jetspray

    It's like I said earlier "bubble, bubble, boil away the trouble" with a aeriation system installed and frequent water sampling by a couple of ladies in a small aluminum boat. The floats are white where they sample with a zone sample puller...….Jetspray

    Back then it wasn't c&r. We always caught rainbows averaging 18", and if you stayed till sundown and knew what you were doing, it was BIG brown country! I used to live on that river for weeks at a time, all the way to gville! Back in the day! (1972-1985). Go there now it breaks my heart!

    Note: The stretch of the East Carson below the Airport is Barbless C&R fishing.

    Just park at the airport and fly that ultralight pontoon fishing thingy you have down there. Or just drive down the airport road down to the bottom and walk 5 minutes to the river.
