Water Level is Low But Very Fishable

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The campground is not open until possibly May 1st, I have not received confirmation yet. The water level is low but very fishable. Fishing has been slow for most anglers. The lake holds Rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout. Average fish is 8-14 inches, with some as big as 2-8 lbs.

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.
