Caples Lake Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

Summer time heat has settled in and afternoon winds are a given. All fish are stuffed with food, such as shrimp, crawdads, and kokanee salmon. Mackinaw are on the bottom engorged with food from midnight hunting in the full moon. We have been getting them in 110 to 180 feet one day and then the next 280 to 350 feet. Dodgers and minnows, flashers and minnows, flat fish, stick baits, and some bottom bouncing are all essential to getting Lake Trout 1 to 15 lbs. One day it's easy fishing and the next day not so easy. Cal Neva Point, Sugar Pine Point, South Shore Shelf are good fishing locations. For more information call Blue Ribbon Fishing Charters at  (530) 542-6552.

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.
