Fishing report 

Conditions, catches, and recent trout plants

Welcome to Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods report on fishing and what's working at all your favorite spots along the Highway 4 corridor.

Thursday November 18, 2021

  For all of the fishermen  the general trout season on our rivers and streams will close on Monday November 15th. Changes were made inside the Department Of Fish And Wildlife that will impact all fishermen.

    The first big change is you can now fish rivers in the sierra all year with special restrictions.

During the closed part of the season which is November 16th to the Friday before the Last Saturday in April you can fish on the river with artificial only (NO BAIT), barbless and must catch and release.  Make sure you check the Fish and Game regulations before you fish to see if there any special regulations for the body of water you have chosen.

    The next change is for Hobart Creek, which runs into Spicer Reservoir. Hobart will now open on the Saturday preceding Memorial Day and stop on September 15th. Hobart never had opened until July 1st. The limit on Hobart Creek is two fish. 

  EBBETTS PASS is now OPEN to Markleeville. 

    ALERT! WHITE PINES LAKE IS DUE TO BE PLANTED THIS WEEK. Should be awesome. The week of 11/14/21. Nothing like a last minute trout plant!

WHITE PINES:  Water has warmed up considerably during this past heat wave we have been experiencing. The trout bite has been almost non existent. But there are plenty of bluegills for the children to enjoy. Give your child an experience they will remember.

LAKE ALPINE:  Lake levels are extremely low and difficult to launch a boat, but fishing has been excellent due to all the previous trout plants. Bait casters should try using Berkley Power Baits and Power Eggs using a sliding sinker rig. Also try floating a night crawler on the same rig. Lure casters should try using a Kastmaster, Dual Flash Panther Martins, Jakes, and Mepps. Fly fishermen should try sparrow nymphs, woolly buggers, parachute adams, blue wing olive, caddis, and bead head nymphs.

SPICER RES: Extremely Low water conditions.

NORTH FORK OF THE STANISLAUS:   Lure casters should try Panther Martin Spinners, try the NEW dual flash Panther Martin, Mepps, Kastmasters, and Thomas Buoyant lures. Fly fishermen should try woolly buggers, bead head nymphs, adams, stimulators, stone fly nymphs, caddis, pale morning dun, blue wing olive, light cahill, sierra bright dot, and ants.

BEAVER CREEK:  Low water levels

UNION RESERVOIR: Open for fishing 




Kinney Reservoir:
