The Fishing Report
The warm weather is upon us. Last week we reached 90 degree temps, pushing the Trout down deeper into the 20-25ft range. Power Baits and minnow colored lures like blue and silver are working well for anglers. Bass are on their beds still. With the warming water temps Catfishing is starting to pick up too.

We came up about 12ft with last weeks rain and are currently 14ft from full now. The lake is stained from all the rain but not as muddy as it could be. We stocked Monday 1/21/18 and hope for another plant later this week. Reports have been pilling in of Trout being caught shallow in the top 10-15ft; with basically everything being used from Mice tails, PowerBait, and Night Crawlers, to Rapalas, and Kastmasters. The spillway and the North side of the lake has been doing good, as well as in the Campground. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
We have stocked 1,500lbs so for this month of Donaldsons and Cutbows many being in the 5lb range! Reports of depth vary with some fisherman catching them on the surface to 30ft deep. PowerBait, Micetails, and Night crawlers have been working well as bait, with lures like Kastmasters and Roostertails doing good as well for both shore fisherman and boaters fishing the back of the Lake. Trolling has been best with Broken Back Rapalas. Lots of Catfish still coming in. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!

Trout season if officially here at Lake Amador!!! We started stocking our Donaldson Rainbows and some Lightning Trout last week with another 500lbs put in today, bringing our total stocked to 1,800lbs thus far! Fishing has been good with may reports of Trout being shallow and lures working great. Keep in mind its still early in the season and the warm weather probably isn’t done, so they may go a little deeper. The main body of the lake has been doing great this last week.

We are currently 16ft from full, but still on cement for the launch ramp. Surface temp is in the high 80’s. Bass, Catfish, and Bluegill are all doing well and loving the warmer waters.

Most of the catfish stocked are in the 2-4lb range, with many in the 5lb range and even bigger. Chicken Liver, Anchovies, and Night Crawlers are all doing well to bring them in.
