Stream fishing in Alpine County is on.
Rainbows, browns, and brookies are abundant in Markleeville, Woodfords, Hope Valley and Bear Valley streams.
Thanks to the Alpine County Fish and Game Commission, the streams are stocked. In fact, fish and game have planted thousands of pounds of trout in the east and west forks of the Carson rivers, Markleeville Creek and Silver Creek.
And, the American Trout and Salmon Hatcheries have a new hose extension for planting fish throughout the whole river system not just near the bridges, so you don’t have to worry about getting to the bridge first. This will make the whole experience better for everyone so you can spread out and work your way along the stream knowing you’ll make a catch.

And mark your calendar for California’s free fishing days in July and September.
All waters leading into Lake Tahoe, including Trout Creek, Taylor Creek and the Upper Truckee River, are closed until July 1.
