Private Waters

Pleasant Valley

Nestled under its Golden Trout headwater lake in nearby Mokelumne Wilderness Area, and the Wild Trout Section of the East Carson River, lays Pleasant Valley. Pleasant Valley is only 35 scenic miles from South Lake Tahoe in Alpine County, California’s least populated county.

Pleasant Valley is one of the most beautiful locations in the Eastern Sierra; it is referred to as “Little Yosemite” by visitors. Flowing through this alpine valley, Pleasant Valley Creek fly fishing offers casting for trout in the meandering meadows while the lower stretch serves up some excellent pocket water action. Over three miles of mountain streams are available on the 900 + acre preserve.

Reservations are necessary as the number of rods per day is limited.  Subject to availability
