Caples Lake Fishing Report

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The water level has been going down a little each day. Both the EID and the Caples boat launches are open. Fishing has been fair for rainbows in the 12 to 14 inch range. The temperatures are much cooler at 7000 foot elevation. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has planted the lake recently with catchable rainbow trout. This will get the mackinaw more active in the early morning. I fished with friend a couple weeks ago and caught a 2 lb mackinaw deep lining with a #5 Rapala. Most anglers have using medium flashers with a half a night crawler. The bite has been on and off the last week or so.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
