Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

The campground is closed and will remain closed for the year. The water level is good and the weeds have not started to grow. But there is a little slime on the bottom of the lake. Anglers using green glitter Powerbait caught some nice rainbows in the 13 to 16 inch class by the dam. Kastmasters or small spinners have been productive as well. The lake was stocked by the CDFW last week with 6200 trout.  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.
