Algae Has Resided and Water Has Been Clear

Red Lake - Hope Valley, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

RED LAKE: The algae has resided and has been the clearest it has been in years through the summer. Fishing has been fair to slow. Night crawlers or salmon eggs have been most productive. I also like to throw a gold kastmaster along the dam area. I would still use cation and not drink the water or swim in the lake. Last year they had a severe blue-green algae outbreak.

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.
