Enough about that. Today was not a burn day here in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains. I had a couple of options. One, I could rake more pine needles. I don't think so, I'm still sore from raking yesterday morning. Two, I could run out to Lake Amador and fish out there. I think I need some place new. So three, I could run out to Lake Camanche and fish the big lake.
I've been hearing some rumors about fishing being good from the North Shore, so I went there. I had no idea where to fish, so when I checked in, I asked. "Go to the day use area and try there. If there are too many people, go around the bend and fish the point". The day use area was low enough that you could drive right to the water and park where you were fishing. That's cool.
Set up one rod with Rainbow Power Bait and the other with the usual assortment of Kastmasters, Thomas Buoyant Lake Lures, and Little Cleos. Lure didn't produce anything. The five I caught were all on Power Bait. They were spread out from 0900 to 1300, but 5 in that time period was good enough. They turned out to be 10" - 11" chunky little Rainbows. They are almost silver in color, but when you get them into the sun, you can see the pink.
I've got a couple of pictures I'll post on California Dreaming over the next couple of days, so stop in and take a look. Here's the link.
A very nice day to be at the lake. Sunshine, blue skies, and about 70 degrees. I know it won't last, but I'm enjoying it while it's there.
Till next time.
