At 7,806 feet above sea level in the Sierras, spring starts a little later at Caples Lake than other mountain fisheries. But the resort area near Kirkwood off Highway 88 was happy to report the lake has fully thawed and will be open for business this week.

Here’s the report and photo from Caples Lake Resort:

HAPPY Caples Lake Thaw as of 5/12/2014 J

Caples lake thawed on 5/9/2014!

We are delaying our opening to this Friday May 16 for lodging, store and marina to reseal and re-stripe our paving and parking.

We have docks and boats in the water –see picture. The store will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with bait, tackle, beverages and snacks, and will be ready for boat rentals and launching on our ramp.

Fishing licenses are not available at this time. The water is at 54 feet lake level-8 feet down from full, and rising-but on our concrete ramp. The Silver Lake boat launch is open.

The Caples lake EID public boat launch is planned to be open on May 16.

The Caples Lake, and Silver Lake campgrounds are planned to be open Memorial weekend.

Check our phone message on (209) 258-8888 for updates.

Have a great spring
