ICR Fish Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The campground is scheduled to open May 12th. The lake level is still high and the fishing has been spotty. I have had reports from anglers shore fishing. One day only a few bites, while two days later The bite was good and hard. Most have been using rainbow or green Powerbait. There have been a few in the 2 to 5 lb class but most have been in the 12 to 14 inch class. Renee and I tried to fish the lake last weekend. That was until we saw over 20 vehicle at the lake. It looked like a family reunion or a small burning man gathering. On our way out approximately 1/2 mile from Diamond Valley road I saw in my rear view mirror a 1967 Corvette convertible with the top down coming up behind us. All the while eating our dust from the road. That will tell you the dirt road in, is passable by any vehicle.

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.
