The Lake Level is Still Up!

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake level is still up, the weeds are starting to show up but still very fishable. The lake was planted last  weekend by Alpine County with 1800 lbs of 1 to 5 pound rainbow trout. The fishing has been good for shore anglers using green or salmon peach Powerbait.  Renee and I fished last Sunday with Geary and Deana Ness from Minden NV. We caught a half dozen rainbows and a couple cutthroat trout up to 3 pounds. Now is the time to get out the fly rod for an evening of fun with a black or olive wooly bugger.

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.
