This is a classic freestone stream with lots of riffles, rapids, deep runs, and pools. These conditions create excellent habitat for stoneflies, caddisflies, and some species of mayflies, all found throughout the Carson drainage. The upper river provides many different experiences, access being one. Above Wolf Creek the narrow, fast-flowing waters are accessible by a rough 4WD trail, on horseback, or by foot. Types of Fish: Rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout, and mountain whitefish. Brook trout in tributaries. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
