I've never seen too many posts about Indian Valley Res.
Guess not many people fish there.....I've fished it long time ago when I lived in Ukiah . My last trip there was back in 2000, caught limit of trout, including 3#er.
I'm headed to Ukiah tomorrow, if I have time I might stop by and wet my line there :)

Seach the Kokanee board. Lots of sniffers fish Indian Valley for kokes and rainbows.

good kokenee lake has nice trout bass crapie catfish I try to fish at least once a year because I can ride my dirt bike right to camp. the road in can be a little rough tried to shake my toyhauler apart a couple of years ago. the lake gets very little fishing pressure this time of year.

Indian valley has become one the premiere kokanee lakes in the state thats why people dont talk about the trout fishing up there very much anymore. When you can catch 18" kokes who fishes for trout.

I fish for trout because more often than not, my fish is way bigger than 18'' :)

I've stopped there today on the way home......
Road leaves much to be desired :-/......I forgot they charge $5.50 for fishing and there's no annual pass available, so if you live close by and want to fish that lake 3 times/month, in 1 year period it will cost you just about $$$........When I got there, some guy was just getting his boat out of the water, he said he didnt have a single bite, but his dog enjoyed the ride ;D

IMO, IVR is a great lake for kokanee and trout. The road is just the "road to IVR"

If I want bigger than 18" we go salmon fishing on the ocean.

Of course, everyone has different preferences :)
I dont dig fishing with a rope( 20# test line)
I like catching big trout with ultra-light or light action rod and 4# test line :)

I like fishing for them all. But there are many days I prefer the calm waters of a lake rather then the swell of the ocean or the crowds on the Sac.
