The lake has thawed out and the water level is high

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake has thawed out and the water level is high, but the night time temperatures are still cold. Last week it was 14 degrees for a low. The resort is looking to open this weekend with limited amenities. They are trying to put in a few rental boats and the store will be open. Cabin rentals are available, after they clear off the 8 inches of snow they received this week. The EID boat ramp and day use is not open at this time, but is scheduled to open very soon. Spring fishing on Caples can be very rewarding for mackinaw and rainbows. Some anglers have been fishing by the dam and have caught a few small rainbows using inflated nightcrawlers. 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.
