Mother Lode Roundup- Don Pedro

Written By: Garry Erck, Dan Bacher, February 10, 2014
Species: Bass Trout
Location: Don Pedro Reservoir,

“Trout action at Don Pedro remains strong,” said Monte Smith of Gold Country Sportfishing. “The only thing we are missing is rain – but action isn’t missing a beat right now.”

“Dropping water is changing the topography – coves we are working now was underwater structure last year.  We continue to work sideplaners with spoons and nightcrawlers into large coves and working points for solid 10-20 fish days,” he stated.

Smith's latest trip to the lake produced a total of 17 rainbows to 17 inches. The anglers trolled with Chucker T lures in a variety of colors in the top 15 feet of water.

“Bass action remains tough at Pedro,” reported Manny Basi at The Bait Barn.  “Drop shotting and dart-heading shad pattern plastics is producing some action – but not a lot.  Shore action for trout is strong – anglers are tossing crawler/marshmallow combos under bobbers in the Moccasin area.”
