Silver Creek / Highway 4

Road condition:   Paved      

Region: Between Ebbetts Pass and the Junction with Highway 89

Drainage: East Fork Carson River

Description: This tiny, five-mile creek is shrouded in brush, willow brambles and granite rocks and boulders, which provide small pocket water.  Casting is most difficult along the creek for its entire course.  Just penetrating the thicket to poke and probe makes this a challenging little creek.  For that reason most anglers pass by heading for larger water.  It is, however, generously stocked particularly above or below bridge crossings.  Scratches, hats knocked off, fly line snags and the difficulty of bringing in a fish are certainly worthwhile when you stick a dark and wild rainbow over ten inches.

Species: Stocked rainbows
