Indian Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The campground is not open yet this year, due to work they are doing in the campground area. There is  Turtle Rock Campground located just opposite the entrance to Indian Creek off highway 89. The CDFW planted the lake with catchable rainbows earlier this month. The blue green algae has been rated at caution level. Do not allow pets to swim or drink the water. When you catch fish, rinse and clean them at home in clean water. The lake has some large rainbows and cutthroat trout. This time of year, I recommend a longer leader with rainbow or salmon peach powerbait. Inflated nightcrawlers are also productive. For lures, use a Thomas Buoyant or a small gold Kastmaster. For more info, 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.
