A Lot of 2 pound Plus in the Lake

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

 The water level is down a little and the algae is still heavy on the lake.  If you fish it right, there are a lot of 2 pound plus in the lake.  Powerbaiters, use a longer leader from 3 to 4 feet on your sliding sinker.  This will get you up above the weeds and into the fish.  Lure anglers use a Thomas Buoyant spoon and keep it on top right over the weeds.  The fishing down in those weeds will come up and explode on that spoon.  Try various colors to see what they are hitting on. I  still use my silver 1/2 ounce Subaru spoon made by friend Paul Aguilara.

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.
