Calaveras County, CA...With winter upon us and more snow in the forecast, many of you will be heading to the mountains looking for a fun day in the outdoors and a good place to sled. It’s not unusual to see highway turn-outs packed with cars while families play on the nearby hillsides. It can be a little scary with such proximity to a principal highway, so we thought a little guide to Calaveras’ better places to sled was in order for this month.

Ebbetts Pass Fishing Report

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/30/2014 03:23 PM
Ebbetts Pass, Ca...Welcome to Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods report on fishing and what's working at all our favorite spots along the Highway 4 corridor -- Come and fish our Highway 4 corridor. With the exception of Spicer Reservoir. all of our lakes, rivers and streams are at normal levels. Don.t miss the opportunity to fish our beautiful scenic highway and enjoy camping along your favorite stream or lake. We look forward to seeing you soon. As of now we have fires in our area and smoke free. We have been experiencing a complete crash of our fishing license computer system. It has hit all of California and will not be up and running at our store until they get the system up and running. No idea when this will happen. You can go on line with our Department Of Fish and Wildlife website. Follow the directions and this will let you purchase your license. You can also go to our website and go to fishing resources and click the tab Take Me Fishing. When the tab opens click on the Fishing tab and look for the Get A License tab in upper right hand corner then click on this tab and it will walk you through the steps to purchase a fishing license on line. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but it was not our fault. Fishing on the Highway 4 corridor has been good fishing. With our rivers experiencing lower than normal water levels, people should try their hand at fly fishing. Stop by our store on how to benefit from low water levels either from a fly rod or a spinning rod. It is not only fun but challenging to fool a trout with a fly....
