Fishing and Boating

 

Three amazing alpine lakes are found in close proximity to Kirkwood: Caples Lake, Silver Lake and Kirkwood Lake

 

Caples Lake, located 4 miles east of Kirkwood, and Silver Lake, located 8 miles southwest of Kirkwood provide beach access, boat launches and picnic areas, as well as boat/kayak rentals, fishing and swimming. Kirkwood Lake is located right across State Route 88 and is smaller than the other two lakes but still good for an afternoon dip to cool down. Info on boat rentals can be found here: Caples Lake Marina and Boat Rentals | Kit Carson Silver Lake Boat Rentals.

The area surrounding Kirkwood offers plenty of opportunities for fishing. Excellent alpine bait fishing and fly fishing lakes and streams are just a short drive from Kirkwood. For information on fly fishing locations and operations check out Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters. Stop by the Kirkwood General Store to pick up your bait tackle!
