Being a firm believer in the old saw "a good day begins with a good breakfast" I started my day at Sharkey's. After breakfast I headed up the hill to Indian Creek Res. Wanting to try out my new outfit with bait I set out with chartreuse Gulp. The morning was pleasant and when the sun came out it warmed quickly and I was in a tee shirt by 0900. I haven't fished ICR in awhile and was unsure what to expect and by 0830 I started getting hits. By 1000 I managed 4 to the shore all on the Gulp. The fish all bows of 10 to 16 inches. Leaving ICR I headed over to the W. Carson to check out conditions for next weeks opener.

ICR campground remains closed. Generally the water in the river is rising and a little off color but the flows are well below normal for this time of year and certainly much less than last year. The river looks fishable at all locations. I even saw some fish at several spots. I'm sure many more will be stocked next week. The camp hosts are at Turtle Rock and Crystal Springs Campgrounds are there and they are fixing to open. The Blue Lakes Road going to the upper river is closed at the Ski Park and Monitor pass is open. It was a drop dead gorgeous day in Alpine County.

Thanks, Captain. Great report. Is that a vehicle behind the gate at Blue Lakes?

There are a couple of cabins back there where people live and the county gives them keys to the gate.
