The lake level has gone done about 8 feet.  The evenings have also gone down in temperature to the low 30's.  Bring a coat if you fish the early morning bite.  Monika caught a nice 4 lb trout using power bait on the south end of the dam.  Boaters have been doing fair with Rapalas or medium flashers and a half a worm.  The resort will be open until the middle of October and will close for the season.  For more information stop  by the Caples Lake Resort.

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.
