Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

The lake level is down a little, which makes it easy to drive over to the dam side to shore fish. The lake is free of weeds but has a lot of slime on the bottom. A few anglers did very well last week using powerbait. Renee and I fished over the weekend and got one bite before the wind blew us off the lake. The campground is closed for the 2022 season. But I am happy to report the eagles are doing fine. We watched an adult and three youngsters cruise around the lake. The paved road still has snow on it and can be dangerous, so drive slowly. The dirt road was open last week. But I feel now it has a few inches of snow on it.

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.
