We (Sierra Travelers) are becoming increasingly aware of the alarming effects of climate change. The streams run lower and the lakes almost seem to dry up.

The last thing we need to do is bury our heads in the sand about it and hope it goes away. See below for a few articles to help us understand this issue:

Inclement weather kept anglers off the water for this years Sierra Trout season opener but as soon as the sun came out so did the fish. I like to go Alpine County and fish the East Fork Carson River and Markleeville Creek.

We found better action Markleeville Creek due to great water clarity and perfect flows. The West Fork Carson is running a little lower than usual so we passed it by.
