Fishing has been fair to good

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The campground is closed for the season due to the Tamarack Fire and extensive damage to the area. Fishing has been fair to good. Layla and Caylyn Walker with their uncle Stan, caught some nice rainbows on a recent trip.The lake has been planted by Alpine County and the CDFW over the last month. Green and salmon peach Powerbait has been most productive. The weeds have returned for the season and the blue green algae is a caution stage. Do not allow pets to drink  from or swim in the lake. Rinse your hands after contact with the lake. If you catch a lucky angler to catch some trout, rinse them off at home with clean fresh water. 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.
