Caples Lake Report

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

I caught this 21 inch 5 pound trout at Caples Lake on July 1, 2018 on power bait from the shore. Lost one of similar size on a lure.

The lake is still high and the fishing has been great. Many rainbows have been caught by shore as well as boat anglers. Many limits of rainbows have been brought into the resort. Jack reported stringers from 12 to 20 pounds have been showing up at the docks. The CDFW has planted the lake twice in the last few weeks. The hold overs from last year have been coming in from 2-5 pounds. For more information stop by the Caples Lake Resort.
