We went to lake Amador Ca today fished all day not a bite one! Finally at dusk my friend caught a wayward bass. There is supposed to be 1000's of pounds trout planted in this lake, we didn't see hardly one breaking the surface and out of many many fisherman only 4 fish caught. Bad Day? They have their own hatchery so I am not buying the whole 1000's of pounds deal. Very expensive to use the lake so I will not be going back. My two cents!
Not offence intended.

I have always disliked "PAY" lakes. Some people don't mind it because you can usually catch fish there, but I usually catch fish no matter where I go ,so I don't like to go to a place where you have to pay for everything.
I can see payin to launch your boat, but that's bout it. They want me to pay for anything else, I'll just choose to go to another lake.

Welcome to the Forum, Preacher, they must stock the higher IQ strain of trout. I have never directly paid for any of the many thousands of fish that I have caught. Guide fees, lisc. fees, boat docking, & etc. but never for a fish that I have caught.

What were you using for set up, and were you fishing from the shore or boat? I know they have their hatchery but they don’t stock 1000’s of pounds weekly, sorry to disappoint.
I’ve had luck toward the rear of the lake after heavy rains, towards Jackson Creek. Done well with power eggs. Cripp lures and speedy hit all the time.

Yeah we were reading some of the stuff on the net that said they planted 16000 pounds of trout since Oct. the lady at the counter where you pay said they stocked a 1000 pounds that day. We used everything that bass pro has to sell. I have never seen a self respecting trout that would pass up a old night crawler! I agree with the no pay sentiment. This is the first time I broke down and paid to fish outside of the launch fees.
O well, back to hunting linesides!!
