Caples Lake Fishing Report

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The water level has dropped about 10 feet. Both of the boat launches are open. rental fishing boats and kayaks are available at the marina. Fishing has been hard and slow. I fished last week with Steve Lightfoot. We trolled deep and long linned rapalas. We caught two small rainbows lost a few others. Most anglers we spoke to had the same luck with blades and a crawler. Shore anglers have had better luck off the dam using inflated night crawlers or Powerbait. be sure to dress warm. At 6am the temperatures were at 33 degrees. For more information stop by the Caples Lake Resort.
