I fished here this morning. This is the third time I've fished Lake Tabeaud and got skunked. The first time I fished the dam area on the mud flat side. The second time I fished the inlet. This time I fished from the left side of the dam to the intake for the Amador Canal. I walked about 100 yards down the left side and used lures, nightcrawlers, and Power Bait. I walked the rest of the way down the left side past the picnic areas to the intake and used lures. I used Panther Martins, Kastmasters, Tasmanian Devils, Little Cleo, and Cripplelures. I didn't see anything that looked like a fish.
When I got home, I went out on the web and several sites say that this lake has Rainbow and German Brown Trout, but I sure couldn't find anything. One good thing is that Lake Tabeaud is on the DFG list to be stocked.
If anyone out there knows how to fish this lake, please let me know. I've tried everything I can think of with no results.
Till next time, remember: "A bad day fishing is better than any day at work".
