Indian Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

 The campground and boat ramp will not be open for the opening weekend. It is scheduled to be open on May 4th depending on weather. The water level has come up a little, but the lake is still pretty much weed free. The fishing has been doing well from shore using various colors of Powerbait. It may be salmon peach in the morning and green in the afternoon. Many anglers have reported 2 to 5 fish days over the last week or so. The unimproved boat ramp is available on the dam side of the lake. Be prepared to get wet as the area is very shallow until you get out a ways. Advise; if you drive in on the Diamond Valley side. Stay to the right side of the road, there are still a few drop offs near the left side from all the water runoffs we have had over the year.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
