View Full Version : Sad day at Pardee

Well to star things off, Pardee has never even made it on my radar. All the negative post from last season turned me off ah bit. Mariahpup gave us some intel so we decided to give it a shot.


We hit the gate @ 5:15 and the lady said 4 cars have entered :laugh: awesome, our spot we had decided on via google earth was open so we took it. We set up on Porcupine point, one soaking bait rod, and switched between ah water bobber and ah lure rod. We started to get taps on the bait rods, but no takers. At about sun up Doug finally nails one of average planter size, but fat

We were gonna have a fellow sniffer meet up with us so I went looking for a brave, found him reeling in a fish as I walked up to greet him. Chit chatted with Chris for a moment and went back to see if RideNfish was knee deep in fish. He was also reeling in a fish as I walked, I need to stop talking and fish, lol.

After a minute we scoot on over to the damn and join Chris. I hustle up the dam and damn, there is tons of fish crowed up in the exact spot we are now fishing. I quickly begin to think about a day of epic numbers, maybe today I can break 100 fish in a day.

This was not the case, lol. I caught 2 :undecided: the fish were super spooked and darted away from mini jigs and power worms like they were sharks. Chris and Doug are picking off some fish here and there. I throw on a red/white bobber and a chunk of a crawler, I think Doug called my bobber a sissy bobber, haha. Well the sissy bobber disappears and my reel starts to scream. What a lovely sound zzzzzzzz got the fish in and zzzzzzzz got the net in the water and zzzzzz again. Got him in and weighed him, he clocked in @ 4.2lbs.

Then Chris and Doug start to tag team those trout, double bendo

Chris is so use to the giant steelhead he has been catching, that grabbing these lil guys was ah chore, hehe

The guy behind Doug almost got beat up :nunu5pn: Every cast with his bait rod was over our water bobber lines :angry: we were there first, then all hell broke lose and we had everyone in "our" spot and on our lap. I know the lake isn't mine, neither is the porta potty, but if i'm in it wait till get out, lol. Not sure how good of a steelhead angler i'd be, cause people bug me :)



All in all still a fun day meeting Chris and eating his lunch :) smoked steelhead was yummy. I didn't hardly see anyone catch a fish, so at least we knocked out a few.

Nice fish. That sucks about the bobber man duct taping his line to your rod. I dont like fishing by all the madness. Me and my daughter hike every spot for about 30-45 mins to get a secluded site. If I even hear people talk then Im too close. Good to hike/exercise plus get some nature time before we fish then I know we are secluded and confidence is pedal to the metal.

No doubt, RideNfish and I ALWAYS hike at least 1 or 2 miles away from the people, trash, and the planters :) if your looking for us on the lake don't bother with any area near a bathroom or a boat ramp, we can usually be found way back in creek arms farting and laughing :)


Thanks for all the replies, lakes can be a drag but what else do we have to do till the Sierra streams open back up :)

Well as to the comparison of salmon and steelhead there wasnt much of a fight. But slamador trout on ultra lite gear have almost spooled me plenty times. Heck a few years ago when a 4# trout at pardee was small they were fun :) . All and all yea we should of went on a hike from the get go. It was an expensive trip for me but any trip with friends on the water is always a good trip in my eyes. Now its snowing good and have a few inches of snow already how am i gona get out to chase the steel un the morning? ???????

Thanks for posting Marv. That way I didn't have to do all the work. Had a great time with both of you yahoos! Since I'm the guy with the camera I sent the pics to Marv to do the post as he sees fit. I had taxes appointment and dentist today so was too busy.

But.... do you think I give Marv "all" the pics? Hell no. I have to keep some material for my follow up post. Marv and his damn hats. They crack me up. He was supposed to wear an "Angry Bird" hat but Brian from Family Guy showed up instead. haha!

Great job and great post. It definitely wasn't a sad day at Pardee. I'd rather catch a single thumper than 10 stockers any day of the week. You'll remember the time you went and caught the 4 pounder, you'd barely remember the trip if you caught a limit of clones....or at least that's the way it is for me.

No, no, no. You got me all wrong. Your fish were big too. In fact, they looked huge. I'm just saying its a good thing you didn't hold any of your fish next to Marv's.

its as if some people are so clueless that they dont realize fish have tails and swim! when you see 3 guys hooking fish 100 yards down the bank from you, there might be several reasons.....frequently it simply means a school of fish is in front of them, and not you! wait 10 minutes, they just might swim past your lines. OR, the 3 guys are using the right gear??? often times the idiots with no sense of fishing etiquette are fishing with gear better suited to stripers in the bay! 20 lb test, surf leaders, 2 oz sinkers, and a pair of size 1/0 baitholder hooks, one with 11 salmon eggs and a nightcrawler, and the other with a glob of powerbait the size of a silver dollar.
