Wait Until the Spring Thaw

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

Wait until the spring thaw to do any fishing.  Unless you like to shovel a lot of snow.  And then you may find out, the ice is to thick to drill through. I have attempted to fish Caples many years ago and found a 4 foot auger with and 18 inch extension could still not get through.

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.
