Lake Amador Fishing Report

Lake Amador - Ione, CA (Amador County)

by Lake Amador Staff

We have lowered the fishing cost from $9 a person down to $7! Just as a reminder the Reservation Book opens the second Friday in February (2/10/17) at 8:00am. The phones will be busy most of the day. We also will be having another plant later this week of 1,200lbs. The Fishing is starting to pick up again with reports from shore fisherman that they are in the top 5 feet and close to shore. Power Eggs, Night Crawlers and PowerBait are the bait of choice right now. The Dam put out a lot of fish this past weekend with fisherman fishing the edge of the debris line. The Spillway has been consistently a good area to fish as well. Trolling has been slow with the water still stained, but boaters have been bait fishing the back of the lake and coves that shore fisherman cant get to. Don't forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
