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.


Monday May 6, 2019


 The road to Spicer Reservoir has not been plowed. I spoke to the Forestry Department today and was informed that there is still approximately three plus feet of snow on the road. No date as of yet to when they will open the road.

Cal-Trans is working on clearing Ebbetts Pass. So far they have made it past  the East end of Lake Alpine. Still quite a bit of snow.


You must have a fire permit to burn your campfire. They are available at any of the USFS stations. The Hathaway Pines Station is open Monday thru Friday 8 to 5, and Saturday 8 to 2. You can contact them at 209-795-1381. Lake Alpine Ranger Station is open Thursday thru Monday. The phone number for Lake Alpine Ranger Station is 209-753-2811.


Our North Fork Of The Stanislaus is running extremely high this year due to the heavy rains and snowfall this past winter. Please use extreme caution while fishing our beautiful rivers and streams.


Lake Alpine is still under snow. Mother Nature will determine when it can be fished


Plan to purchase your fishing license ahead of time. We are the only retailer on the Highway 4 corridor that sell them and never know when our machine could go down.

Quote Of The Week: How keenly the love of angling is developed in the bosoms of many men; how patient and long suffering fishermen are, and how content with the hopes of even small mercies.

By: J.P. Wheeldon

WHITE PINES: Will be planted the week of May 7th. Bait casters should try using Berkley Power Eggs, Berkley Power Bait, and Berkley Mice Tails on a sliding sinker rig. You can also float a night crawler using a Power Egg, Atlas marshmallow or just inflate the night crawler with a worm blower. Fly fishermen should try sparrow nymphs, ants, bead head woolly buggers, Blue Wing Olive, Adams, and bead head nymphs. Lure fishermen should try Kastmasters, Panther Martin's, Rooster Tails, Mepps, Super Duper's, and Jakes Lures.
