Fishing Report

It took a little longer than I had originally planned but I finally was able to fish Lake Pardee last weekend. The trip was a last minute decision so I ended up making the trip by myself. Surprisingly, it rained the whole time I was driving to the lake and stopped raining as soon as I arrived. I expected the boat ramp to be busy but there was not a boat in site when I got there. I didn't have the whole lake to myself but boat traffic was definitely below average for this time of year. Unfortunately the ...

Fishing Report

Last weekend a friend and I went fishing at Lake Amador. Lake Amador is the place that I used to dream about when I was a kid. As a family, we would camp there several times a year and fish there just about every other weekend. There's pretty much a story that goes along with every stretch of bank on Lake Amador for me. The fishing hasn't always been the best, but every lake has its good and bad days. It's strange how everything looked so much bigger back then. Lake Amador has become a special place ...
