Friday I took 4 businessmen who only had a couple hrs before meetings to get out to Folsom Lake and get some relaxin in before work.  We managed 8 Trout in the box in 3 hours before we had to get back to the ramp.  Saturday I took 2 clients and we managed 11 Trout in the box by 1pm.  Took Super Bowl Sunday off and back to Folsom on Monday where we managed to get 5 nice trout in the box in about 3 hours.  The bite is on and off.  The key is to find the fish and stay on them.  Don't move!!!!

Presentation was 3mph with toplined J-5 Jointed Rapalas in blue-white, and black-slilver 200-250' back and white with red poka dot Speedy Shiners and Pink Bikini Needlefish down 10' on the downrigger and 75-100' back.

Back To Reports

It is still possible to launch at Granite Bay. The ground is soft, so 4WD is strongly recommended.
