Caples Lake Fishing Report

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake level is getting low. The Caple Lake resort is open for another couple weeks. They have boat, kayak and cabin rentals available, but the boat launch is not open. The EID ramp and day use area will be open until the snow flies. The CDFW planted the lake with catchable rainbow trout last week. Renee and I fished the lake last Sunday and caught one nice brown and a small mackinaw trout.Round Top mountain had some snow on it, but nothing close to the lake level. I marked fish all over the lake. But the bite was not on. Best areas have been by Immigrant cove using Rapalas for throwing a bead head wooly bugger in the rocks. Shore anglers were fishing by the dam and the bite was slow as well. 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.
