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

Sunday May 22, 2023



      New from The Department Of Fish and Wildlife. As of January of 2023 you will be able to obtain your fishing license during the year and will be good for 365 days instead of the calendar year.

   Memorial Day weekend is this upcoming weekend, starting Friday May 20th. Please note that camping this year on Memorial Day weekend will be limited to just a few camping areas. This includes Big Trees State Park, Golden Pines RV Resort (located just before Dorrington) and possibly the campground at Sourgrass. I spoke to the Forestry Department this past week and they are trying to get the campground at Sourgrass open by Memorial Day but may not be able to open as there could be damage to the campsites due to the heavy snow we received this past winter. I will keep everyone updated as soon as I am informed.

   Fishermen beware, the river will be running higher than normal due to snow melt and can be very dangerous. Boards Crossing road is open and free of snow. 

 Lake Alpine will not be available to fish for some time due to large amounts of snow and ice. Along with Lake Alpine, Spicer will be closed until the snow is off the road and the forestry department can determine what and if there is damage to the road from this years winter storms. I will keep everyone posted as soon as I hear.
