The Kokanee bite today was a bit on the slow side. Possibly due to the rising water level, the fish seemed to be scattered. We worked hard at it and managed to get 3 limits by 12:30. This father, daughter, and son trio did a terrific job. We started out with a very good ratio of caught and lost fish with a bonus rainbow trout, but towards the latter part of the day it became typical Kokanee fishing and the struggle began down to the last fish. 

Sierra Sportfishing is ready to take you fishing in the Motherload. We proudly run guided fishing trips to our local lakes including: Lake McClure, Don Pedro Reservoir, Lake Camanche, New Hogan Reservoir and New Melones.
