For over 40 years, the Lockhart Family, of four generations, has been in the process of developing the finest fishing resort in the Western United States. Lake Amador Resort, located in the foothills of the Sierras, is only one hour from Sacramento or Stockton and two hours from anywhere in the Bay Area.
Years ago, we realized that Mother Nature, alone, could not provide the quality of fishing that our anglers deserved. So, we set out to raise the best eating, hardest fighting, and biggest trout found anywhere in the country. We imported a special strain of crossbred trout from Switzerland, the Donaldson Trout. They are part Steelhead, part Cutthroat, and part Rainbow. Anglers from all over the world now rave about the spectacular jumps and awesome fight that these unique fish exhibit.
We plant up to 1000 lbs of trout every Monday Through Friday, averaging 2-6+lbs. each, which provides not only fabulous fishing, but also the best catching ratio in the country. Besides trout, Lake Amador held the Largemouth Bass record for Northern California for over 10 years at 17.1 lbs., our bass fishing is simply superb!! Since there is NO WATERSKIING OR JET SKIS ALLOWED, the peaceful adventure on the 400-acre, 13 1/2 miles of beautiful Lake Amador shoreline will keep anglers returning again and again!
