Species: Trout Bass
Location: Lake Amador,

If you want to hook monster trout in the Mother Lode, it’s hard to beat fishing at Lake Amador now.

Big fish honors go to George Mendoza of Sacramento, who landed a 16.24 lb. trout while trolling with a J-7 firetiger Rapala, reported Debbie Grayson at the Lake Amador Resort. Ten-year-old Raylynne Grisssom, bagged a 14.78 lb. trout while trolling with a firetiger Rapala on her first-ever fishing trip.

Trevor Cooper of Rocklin bagged a 7.58 lb. trout while trolling in Cat Cove and Shammy of Stockton nailed a 7.12 lb. trout on a Kastmaster.

“We’re stocking 400 pounds of trout per day and fishing continues to be good,” said Grayson. Shore anglers and boaters are doing best fishing in the top 3 feet of water with Rapalas, Kastmasters and Power Bait.

While few anglers are targeting bass, Joseph Subia of Vallejo landed a 5-1/2 lb. largemouth bass while fishing a diving Rapala off N Point.

The boat ramp is in operation and the water level is 60 feet from maximum pool.
