ICR Update

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake level has come down a little, the water has cleared up. I received a report from a couple anglers that fished last Monday. They used green and orange Gulp and caught 11 small rainbows. They were fishing on the dam side from shore. I spoke with fellow angler Lew Souder that fished the lake this week. Lew was using spoons on the camp side of the lake with not much action. For those that are familiar with the lake, the fallen tree that is near the tent camping area, the water level is with in foot or so from that tree. There is ample room to shore fish on the dam side. If you plan on fishing by the dam, you will have to walk in as the water is to high to drive to as of last week. The paved road is now open to vehicle traffic or you can use the dirt road off Diamond Valley Road. It is a little rough but passable.

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.
