Indian Creek Reservoir Fish Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The water level is still up. The weeds are growing good. The lake has been planted twice this year from the Alpine County Chamber Of Commerce. The CDFW has planted the lake with catchable rainbows. The lake was also stocked with Lohontancutthroat from Heenan Lake  this year. The lake has a lot of fish, but due to the weed population. You have to do some creative fishing. If you are using powerbait, my suggestion would be to use a very long leader to get your bait higher above the weeds. The wtare temperature as of a few weeks ago was 765 degrees. I would recommend the early morning or evening bite.

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.
