Indian Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Indian Creek Reservoir - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

I ventured up last week with my friend Tom Blotter from Minden. We launched my boat from the unimproved ramp area. After casting for an hour or so with no luck, we started trolling. I, a Thomas Buoyant spoon and Tom a Rapala. We caught a few rainbows and cutthroat trout up to 2 pounds. The F-5 broken back perch pattern Rapala was the best action of the day. We watched a few shore anglers real in a few trout about 12 to 14 inches long. Being on the lake I realized the lake still has plenty of weed action. But as I have said in the past, weeds are your friend. We caught most of our fish in 7 to 12 feet of water in the weedy areas. The lake was planted with 1800 pounds of catchable to 3 pound rainbow trout a couple weeks ago by Alpine County.

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.
