Caples Lake Fishing Update

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Caples Lake Resort
(209) 258-8888

Fishing is great here at Caples Lake Resort. This 2 lb Mackinaw was caught by resort guest, John Pierce, drifting in a Caples Lake Resort fishing boat with night crawlers by the Woods Creek inlet. The lake level is at 60 feet (62’ is full). Awesome news in this drought year.

The Emigrant Lake Trail on the south side of the lake is free of snow and several guests have already hiked up to Emigrant Lake. Looks like a spectacular summer at Caples Lake thanks to the Eldorado Irrigation District (EID) keeping the outflow to a minimum this winter and spring and also due to the unexpected precipitation in April and May.
