Quite a few fishermen along the East Carson River that is really flowing. The high country lakes are still melting out. We did see a couple of people fishing Lake Alpine along the shore but Mosquito as you can see in the picture below is still snow encrusted...

Caltrans Clears Mountain Passes Each Spring to Open High-Altitude State Highways for Spring and Summer Travel
Posted by: thepinetree on 05/04/2016 12:14 PM
Stockton, CA...In this Caltrans News Flash, you get a front-row seat as Caltrans maintenance crews clear highways, cutting through steep and narrow mountain passes, including the Sonora pass in Tuolumne County, and the Ebbetts and Monitor passes in Alpine County. Snow and ice must be shoved off the road, rocks and debris must be removed, brush has to be cut back and sometimes 300-ton boulders must be blasted before the highway is safe for public travel. These mountain passes typically close in the fall, and Caltrans begins clearing the passes in April.
