Indian Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Liz Weirauch

Weeds are up. Fish are going a bit deep, if fishing from shore, I'd throw a damsel or finger crawl a blood midge or sheepcreek special early in the morning, evenings; buggers olive/black/purple. As soon as we get a really good cool snap, they'll start hunting the shallows late in the afternoon to after sunset. If in a float tube, you'll do better, and start using an intermediate or sink tip. Finger crawl your nymphs. Buggers in olive, black and white. Red zebra midges, Blood midges, small Mahalo's, hares' ear, damsels, sheep creek specials.
