The Fishing Report

Lake Amador Fishing Report- 1/12/16 Posted

There have been some real lunkers brought in lately. We planted 1,200lbs this last week with another load coming next week. Trout are still feeding in the top 5ft of water and close to shore. Many have been successful using Garlic scented white power eggs, pink power bait, crappie jigs and broken back rapalas. Check out Facebook page for more catches and details.

Stanley Van Muyden caught some whoppers today topping the scales at 8lbs and 9lbs. He fished close to shore from his boat with broken back rapalas. Nice!

Wesley Barrios from Elk Grove just brought in a trophy trout at 8.46 lbs. He was fishing with pink Power Bait by the launch ramp. Looks kind of like a Lightning trout holdover to me, nice catch!

Scotty Beach and his 3 fishing buddies sure hauled in some nice rainbows today. Looks like Power bait, worms, and crappie jigs are the bait to use right after a rain storm. They had 20 fish total, 2 were tagged derby trout and they all limited out for the day!!!

 

 

 

Lake Amador Fishing Report- 1/4/16 Posted

Hope Everyone had happy holidays. Good weather and higher water levels have made for great fishing. With another 1,200lb plant coming this week, we will have planted a total of 14,100lbs this season. Trout are feeding in the top 5ft of water and close to shore. Garlic scented white power eggs, Kastmasters, and trolling with orange and white mice tails are the top bait for the moment. Check out Facebook page for more catches and details.

The highlight of the trip is when Patrick managed to land a 5.82lb lunker using a Kastmaster and end the fishing trip with a bang!

Amir McMillon was trolling in a rental boat at the back of the lake using mice tails with garlic scented white power eggs and orange power worm. He caught his limit with his big fish weighing 4.78lbs!

Week of 12/28/15 Fishing Report Posted

Great news, we have come up 15 feet with the recent rain and sit at 32 feet from full. Water quality is good with only light debris making its way to the dam for cleanup. Fishing has been great for both trollers and shore fisherman. Pink power bait, Kastmasters, and small crappie jigs are the top baits right now. Reports of trolling with Rapala’s have yielded well for many fisherman. Keep your bait small and in the top 5 feet.  Remember when fishing from shore be active and move the shore line looking for schools of trout.

4000LBS OF TROUT WILL BE STOCKED THURSDAY OCTOBER 22ND Posted

We stocked our first load of trout on October 22nd 2015 with a weight of 4000lbs to get the season under way. So far we have stocked a total of 12,900lbs. Check out our stocking totals page for more details. With the lingering drought many trout rearing facilities have closed down including our own and getting trout has become quite difficult for many lakes in California.  Luckily we were able to secure the same 40,000lbs from Lassen we stocked last year so the fishing should be great.

WEEKLY TROUT PLANTS FROM HERE ON OUT!!! Posted

I am excited to let everyone know that it looks like we will be able get a load of trout in the lake once per week every week through the month of May 2015.  There is a chance that due to holidays we may miss a week but I don’t expect it to happen more than once or twice.  Keep in mind that 10% of the loads will be over TROPHY SIZED weighing in between 8-20lbs so gear up.   We hope that this helps keep those heavy stringers flowing in!

TROUT PLANTS WILL START OCTOBER 23, 2014 Posted

Ok folks, your favorite time of year is just around the corner.  We will be starting our trout stocking program on Thursday of next week 10-23-2014 and will be planting a large 5000lb load of Rainbow’s to start the season.  In November we hope to start weekly plants of 1250lbs to keep all the fisherman out here with stringers full.  As always there should also be many holdovers from last season coming up from the depths, many of which weighed up to 20lbs and were never caught.  Keep in mind that this year your entrance fee’s will be significantly lower and should be very comparable to other lakes around our area.  We are a local family owned business and wanted to show how much we appreciate all who come out our way!

JANUARY FISHING REPORT Posted

THE JANUARY JUMPING TROUT

Well a year has come and gone but the fishing sure hasn’t changed at all, its HOT HOT HOT!  Both on the shore and by boat, fisherman continue to haul large limits of trout everyday with some on the stringer reaching 15+ pounds.   Boat fisherman have the upper hand due to the current drought conditions we are facing in California but remember that there is limited space on our launch ramp so please understand that a smaller boat is recommended.  If you plan to fish from shore don’t be surprised to be faced with steep shorelines, if you look in the background of the pictures you will notice the current lake level is quite low, reaching 60′ down soon.  That said, you still wont find a better fishing hole anywhere that has more trout per gallon than us so you cant go wrong coming out this way, just check out that slideshow! 

ATTENTION LAKE AMADOR ANGLERS!!! We will be increasing our current trout stocking rates to 1000lbs DAILY M-F that’s 5000lbs a week!!!  We hope to continue this for the next couple of weeks as we attempt to reduce the densities in our fish farm.  This means it will be like fishing in a barrel here so if you want a guaranteed awesome fishing day come on out.
