Fishing Has Picked Up

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The campground is still closed. Fishing has picked up and I spoke with a representative of Alpine County. I was told that the lake has passed the Blue green algae inspection. The CDFW has planted the lake with rainbow trout and has another scheduled plant later this month. Kastmasters Thomas Bouyants are productive on this lake. Inflated nightcrawlers or Powerbait are also very productive. The lake has rainbow and cutthroat trout ranging from 12 inches to 12 lbs. Don't be surprised if you catch a largemouth bass here and there. For more information stop by the Creekside Lodge.

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.
