Good conditions at Caples

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)


by Nor Cal Fish Reports
9-30-2015

The lake is down about 12 feet but the EID (Eldorado Irrigation District) reduced the lake outflow from 70cfs to 5 cfs. This means the lake level be will reduced 1/4inch a day (instead of 3 ½ inches per day for the last month) through the fall. The public boat launch 1/2 mile east on Highway 88 will be open through October or later. The water has cooled down to 60 degrees and the catching is picking up. Brandon Burrell from Elk Grove caught a 6 pound rainbow from the dam using a fly rod. (209) 258-8888
