Amador: Trout Plants Kick Into Gear

After a long period of slow trout fishing, the fishing has again perked up with the beginning of fall trout plants at Lake Amador.
“We’ve now stocked 2600 pounds within a 6 day period, so Lake Amador is starting to look like fishing in a barrel,” reported Elizabeth Lockhart at the Lake Amador Resort. “We saw a few caught just in the short time it took us to get to our release point. The latest load was let go at the spillway and the previous Amagold releases were at the Dam, so fishing the west side of the lake should be awesome!
The surface temperature is still riding at 69-70 and the lake level is currently at 35’ from full.. “It looks like some cooler weather is coming our way soon, so expect these fish to start hitting shallower soon,” noted Lockhart.
Dan Xiong decided to head over from Sacramento and try his luck on catching some Amagolds. His trip was a big success, as he caught a limit of Amagolds, topped by two fish weighing 4.78l pounds. and 3.56 pounds. He caught the fish between the dam and the blue dock.
