Hunting and fishing opportunities might be Northern Nevada's best kept
Wildlife abounds around the foothills of the Eastern Sierra, as well
as the surrounding lakes and streams. Outdoorsmen come from all around
the world to fish for the elusive Cutthroat trout, or hunt for a chukar.
Traditionally mild weather makes it a year-round affair.
In the heart of Carson City, the Carson River contains an abundance
of rainbow trout, carp, bass and whitefish. Clear Creek, which flows
through southern Carson City from the Lake Tahoe Basin, offers small
stream fishing. The Truckee River flows to the north, and the capital
is in close proximity to Pyramid, Topaz, and Washoe lakes, as well as
the locally famous Hobart Reservoir.
