Folsom Lake - Folsom Lake, CA

Folsom finally has an open ramp again. Head in at the granite bay entrance, follow the signs and you’ll see it. As of now they have a paved single lane ramp with a dock. The only issue is the 5mph speed limit over the entire lake. I hit the water at 7 on Tuesday and started to head north. The water was very stained from the rain and rising water. I started on a vertical wall and noticed that the water was getting worse as I went north. I fished until 10:30 with only one bite. The fish would not touch anything I was throwing. I gave up on fishing for a little and headed to the main lake to mark way points on my graph, there are tons of exposed rock piles that could hold fish once the water gets up. I fished main lake and still could not get any bites, I started to think that the fish just could not see my baits. I went down the south fork and the water looked better, still stained but less than the north and main lake. At 3 I tied on an underspin with a 3.8 inch kietech and finally got bit. I was just barley creeping it over the bottom and the bites were very soft. I only caught 3 fish the entire day. I think the fish need some type of flash or noise to find the bait with all the stained water.
