After reading calndn's report, decided to give Amador a shot. The $17.00 fee was harsh and I figured I better get a limit to justify the cost. First line in the water at 7:15, bank where calndn fished was occupied, so I headed across the dam and fished at the first pull-out, near some tules. No action for 45 minutes and I was going to move at 8:00, right at 8:00 my pole gets slammed and I have a MONSTER on! After 4 reel dragging runs, I begin to get the upper hand and start gaining ground, the MONSTER is coming in, albeit grudingly. Just as he nears shore, vroooooooooooommmmmmmm, he heads for the frikking tules. Alas, he manages to get in there and shake himself free.
Well, I decide to stay there and re-bait my line, I cast out and 10 minutes later it gets slammed again! This time there will be no frikking tules for this guy! After a 4-5 minute battle, a nice one is landed. Short story, ended with a NICE limit, 5 hours of fishing, which would have been 4, except for Mr. Tule. All fish came on PE/PW combo, no takers on PB, lures or night crawlers. The old guy in the lodge, Bob, told me to fish in 2-5 feet of water. ALL fish came off the bottom!!!!!!
Once again, BEWARE AND CAREFUL, two different parties fishing the rocks on the dam reported RATTLESNAKES!
