The lake level is still up, but the fish have gone deeper

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake level is still up, but the fish have gone deeper. Anglers have had best luck in the early morning or evening hours. Trollers have been using lead core or down riggers in 25 to 40 feet of water. Rapalas or flashers and a crawler have been most productive. Shore anglers have picked up a few off the dam or by the spillway. The EID day use and boat ramp is open. The Caples Lake resort is open for boat, kayak and cabin rentals, as well as boat launching. The general store  is open for thos little things you may need. For more information, stop by the Caples Lake Resort.


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.
