Re: 13+" Trout in California Rivers
Shame on me for biting my tongue.
Alpine County has been heavily stocking the East Carson (above Hangman's Bridge) and the West Carson. Look to find 12" to some rather large (up to 30") rainbows, cutts, and browns.
If you are willing to hike, consider hiking into the wild trout section below Hangman's Bridge. There is always some homie that is ready to be hooked.
PS: Homie = large wild trout
