Caples Lake Fishing Report

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The resort will be open until mid October and will close for the winter season. Due to the recent passing of owner John Voss, they will restructure and open in the spring. Fishing has been good for shore anglers by the dam. Garlic Powerbait or night crawlers have been most productive. The fish have gone deep, so the trollers have been working hard for a couple fish lately. The CDFW planted the lake last week with some catchable rainbows. That should get the browns and the mackinaw to get on the bite soon. Fished a couple weeks ago with Steve Lightfoot and we worked the lead core with Raplala's and small cowbells with a half a night crawler and caught a couple small rainbows. As of this week the boat ramp was still open and will close at the first sign of significant snow fall.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
