Anyone know if Caples or Silver are still fishable from shore?

both, but the mormon emigrant trail is not plowed so you have to make sure the snow line isnt going to stop you in your tracks!

They plow highway 88 though so from the jackson side or the tahoe side you can get to both lakes... Keep in mind, they dont plow the roads inside the kit carson lodge entrance so for Silver Lake... I prefer summertime fishing. After the snow melts is my preference.

I always have luck at silver lake. Watch your stringer though... The crawfish there are bigger than I've ever seen them and I lost two keeper trout to hungry mud bugs!

I have'nt been up for a couple weeks but my buddy in Tahoe said Caples was fully iced over yesterday. Silver probably isn't yet but it will be soon!
With this warm storm, you may get a few de-iced spots but who knows?!
Good luck!......KG
