Indian Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake level has dropped a bit allowing you to drive around the cove to fish by the dam. With the weather temperatures getting cooler. The weeds are breaking up and the lake is clearing up but not completely weed free yet. We ventured out last week to fish for 2 hours until the wind came up about 11 am and blew every one out of the area. I talked to one angler that caught a nice 18 inch rainbow using rainbow Powerbait. The campground and boat ramp is closed for the season. Anglers can still launch small boats off the unimproved launch. Alpine county is planning to plant the lake towards the end of November. With cooler weather the fishing will only get better. I have given the lake a new name, "Windian Creek Reservoir". Some how that valley has it own vortex of of weather it creates all by itself.

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.
