Indian Creek Reservoir

Indian Creek Reservoir is a small reservoir in Alpine County, CA at the end of Airport Road. It can be fished from a boat, float tube or shore. Indian Creek Reservoir has the best easily accessible Damsel Fly hatches in the Lake Tahoe area. The stocking program for Indian Creek is very successful and there are many large fish. During the peak of the hatch, it is a lot of fun to watch the bigger fish wake after a Damsel and suck it in. When guiding and can get away with it, Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters guides use 3x or 4x in order to hold on to the larger fish. Indian Creek Reservoir also has a decent Blood Midge hatch with a majority of the hatch being #14 or #16. These are big midges and the fish come to the surface. It is great to see a 4 or 5 lb. trout crash the surface for a dry fly. This fishery is best fished from ice out to around July 1st.
