Indian Creek Reservoir update

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The gate on the paved road has been closed for a few weeks. When the weather changes and clears up a little, it may open up. I talked with anglers that reported a couple inches of ice on the lake last week. The dirt road from Diamond Valley Road was open, but was a little nasty to get in. I would recommend staying away from the lake for a couple more weeks, just for safety reasons. The lake was planted back in November by Alpine County, so there will be plenty of fish. The fish will be very hungry by the time the road is safe to venture out onto.

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.
