The lake got its first snow on the 15th

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The EID day use and boat ramp are closed for the season. The resort is closed right now. But is expected to open back up in mid December. I have also been told that they may be opening up the restaurant in the new year. The lake got its first snow on the 15th. The lake will start to freeze over the next month and I hope to be ice fishing by January. Only if there is not 10 feet of snow on the lake like last year.

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.
