CAPLES LAKE – The lake is full and was stocked this past week by the DFW with 15,000 pounds of rainbows. Nearby Kirkwood Lake was stocked also. Caples Lake Resort reported that shore fishing and the dam and Wood’s Creek inlet were excellent. Trollers were also doing very well using flasher/worms for limits of rainbows and the occasional brown. A 10-pound mack hit a Kwikfish trolled 40 feet deep off Wood’s Creek inlet on Sunday.

State officials are evacuating fish from hatcheries on the American River because of the drought. Water temperatures are expected to become too warm to keep the fish alive in coming weeks.
