Lake Amador Fishing Report

Lake Amador - Ione, CA (Amador County)

by Lake Amador Staff

We are now only 6 feet from full and the current water temperature is 55 degrees. The handicap ramp is hooked up to the big dock and functional. We have stocked every week this month with our last plant on the 22nd of 1200lbs and another load expected this week. Trolling has definitely picked up in the last two weeks! Rapalas and spinners are the lures of choice in the Jackson Creek area. I still have reports of boaters bait fishing the coves and shoreline in Jackson Creek and Mountain Springs areas. We have received a good amount of tagged fish from our derby (7 total from yesterday alone 12/26!), most from in the back of the lake showing that the fish do school together and are on the move. From shore Kastmasters, Micetails, PowerBait, and white Power Eggs are working well. Reports from fisherman are that fish are fairly shallow and close to shore, with most casting out from 5-10ft from shore. Don't forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
