Trout catches are increasing

This is the first week so far this spring that we are seeing EQUAL catches from the bank of trolling in a boat.  Trollers are also picking up Catfish and Bass!!

Troll between 3 ft. to 10 ft. down with a simple lure like a Kastmaster, Needlefish, or flasher and a worm will net you the best chance of catching trout right now.

Suzanne Cari from Orangevale caught her 5 lb. 12 oz. rainbow off the sand beach using PowerBait and Ricky Damico also caught a 5 lb. 12 oz. bow trolling a Rapala near Elmer’s Cove.

Andre & Zeke trolled worms for awhile then anchored in on the east end of the dam and used PowerBait and caught more trout.  Mark McCee caught two nice bows on the east side of the dam too.

Trevor Wilkinson from Gridley hooked a 4 lb. 8 oz. Rainbow while trolling a Wedding Ring Spinner in the channel.  Jeffrey & Mike trolled in the same area with a dodger/worm combo and netted a big 6 lb. 4 oz. Catfish, surprise!!

Conner, Lorenzo, Steve, Steven, & Xavier Gladden from Elverta caught 12  trout along the Open Area shoreline using yellow PowerBait.  Sam Johnson caught her trout near the dock on PBait.

Waylon McCutcheon and his buddy Clint Zimmerman each hooked a great looking trout around two pounds using PowerBait off the beach.  Minnows or Powerbait worked for Kyle Leingang from Pinole, he hooked two trout and his biggest was 2 lb. 8 oz.

Landen & Dillan trolled in the channel and hooked four nice trout, their lure of choice was a Needlefish.  Katy Sannar from Yuba City limited out on trout using PowerEggs by the beach.

Eight trout were hooked trolling a Blue Fox lure, the biggest weighed in at almost three pounds.  The boat was fished by Tyler, Ben, Ethan, and Brooke from Sacramento.
