The Lake has Got its Weeds Back!

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake has got its weeds back. The lake was planted in June by Alpine County and has been planted by CDFW as well. A little trick to getting those fish the bite is to use a longer leader from 2-4 feet long. This will get the Powerbait floating above the weeds. Salmon peach, rainbow or garlic has been most productive. Throwing a Thomas Buoyant over the tops of the weeds is also a good producer. The campground area has now gone to 60% reservations until the end of this calendar year. Next year it will be 100% reservation only. This was a decision made by the BLM in joint with the US Forest Service Dept.


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.
