Lake Amador Fishing Report

Lake Amador - Ione, CA (Amador County)

by Lake Amador Staff

What beautiful weather we are having, both fish and fisherman are loving it. Bass fishing has picked back up in the last couple of weeks and also lots of people catching Trout. The Spillway is still a hot area for shore fisherman. With the sunny weather the Dam should be a good area while fishing the debris line, Trout usually like to hang out in the shade underneath. As usual, PowerBait and Power Eggs are knocking them out when used shallow and close to shore. Bass fishing has been very good with large jigs, Brush Hogs, and swim baits in the 10-25' range. Usually the main hot spot for Bass is up toward the back of the lake this time of year, but some are being caught closer by the Dock and RV Park point. We have the NorCal Trout Anglers Challenge coming up on March 18th, see the included flyer for details! Don't forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!

Well, we got hammered again with this last storm so needless to say the water condition isn't too good. We stocked 2,400lbs this past Friday the 10th. We also put in the last 100 derby tags, making our total of 300 tagged fish in the lake. The derby continues until March 19th, so there is plenty of time left to catch yours. There is a lot of debris floating around, hopefully the wind will be on...... Read More
