  1. Re: Folsom Lake, Sacramento’s Backyard Landlocked Chinook and Trout Fishery

    The reason I believe that many of the straight up verticle echos (a series of marks stacked one above the other) are bubbles is I've positioned my boat directly over springs and have noted bubbles...

    I have seen marks like those shown in your picture and have concluded that they are air bubbles, especially in the south fork. Just saying????? Whalonem
