Alpine County has been a fishing destination for generations. With more than 700 square miles of public lands and some of the most pristine lakes and streams you'll ever see, there is something for every level of angler to enjoy. Keep scrolling to learn more about our fishing waters.
Through grants from the County of Alpine and the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce, the Alpine County Fish and Game Commission stock some of the rivers throughout the year.
