Caples Lake Update


5lb mack handpainted Kastmaster

From our friends at Caples Lake Resort:

A 5-pound, 27-inch Mackinaw was caught  on June 13 by Paul Katosh from Kirkwood Ca.,

trolling at the Woods Creek inlet with a hand painted 1/8-ounce  Kastmaster.

Caples Lake is full; what a pleasant surprise in this drought year.

The Department of Fish and Game is scheduled to plant catchable trout  at Caples, Silver and  Woods Lakes this week and next.

Our marina is open 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for rentals of our 12- and 14-foot Gregor fishing boats with 8-HP, 4-stroke Honda motors, canoes, and kayaks.

Our Store is open 7:30 to 5:30 with bait, beverages, snacks, and fishing licenses.

Our nine cabins and six lodge rooms are available.

The Caples, Woods, Kirkwood and Silver lake campgrounds are all open.
