    The hatchery used to release spawned out adults in folsom with tags to see if a fishery could be established, only about 5% were caught

    Thank you for the explanation. I appreciate your timely response. I do remember the "too warm" issue.

    Folsom has 3 distinct strains of rainbow trout.
    1- recent hatchery plants(bottom 3 trout in original post)
    2- elt or eagle lake trout, planted as subcatchables around 6". They grow fast though( top 2 fish in original post)
    3-steelhead from nimbus hatchery

    The following Pic is king salmon, note black mouth and forked tail, spots are also only on tail and back sides are clean and fins are greenish.
    Fish will look iridescent purple on transition from back to chrome sides

    I usually start fishing about 5 or 10 minutes in, just past the Peninsula Campground and troll upriver. I rarely go as far as the first floating outhouse before I circle back. If it's not happening there, I make about a 10-20 minute run to the dam. Then I'm always within about 5-15 minutes of the launch.

    Is the launch ramp at rattlesnake not open? Why boat all that way when you can drive it on the freeway and launch right at rattlesnake? Been a year or so since i was out that way but it was operational then.
