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.

Tuesday  April 27, 2021

    After a very different 2020, due to the Corona Virus, 2021 looks to be a more promising year. The COVID 19 vaccines are up and running and our country is looking forward to a more normal year.

      Trout Season opened on April 24th 2021.

   We are expecting a great fishing year along our Highway 4 corridor with some new changes to our Fish And Wildlife Laws that started on March 1st 2021. 

    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.  

The road to Spicer has not yet been opened. I will keep everyone updated as to when Spicer will open.

Cal-Trans is currently working on clearing snow from Ebbetts Pass. No timeline as to when they expect to be finished.

    Lake Alpine is now open enough to fish. There is still ice on the lake but plenty of fish-able water.

   Big Trees State Park has opened Memorial Parkway which is main road to the Stanislaus River, Beaver Creek , and The South Grove.
