Carbon River reopens to fishing immediately

The Carbon River has been reopened, effective immediately, by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. The department just announced the reopening.

Anglers will need to follow the rules and seasons listed in the 2008-09 Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet.

The reopening allows anglers to keep surplus hatchery steelhead on the river. This will help reduce the genetic and ecological competition between hatchery and wild fish.

Fishing had been closed since Dec. 15 because of poor returns to the Voights Creek Hatchery of hatchery steelhead earlier in the season.
