I have never been to Amador so this might seem a dumb question. It sounds like the lake level / condition is similar to Folsom. It also sounds like they are still dumping planters in the lake? If it is "so low" does it make sense to keep stocking with fish? A shrinking lake can only support so many fish, right? Or, is the lake that big / deep and it is just the launches that are affected right now? Any ideas? Just wondering?

Large, no. Deep, yes. It's a put and take lake. They put them in, people take them out.

I know that Amador has a good crappie and bass population as well as disc golf course, but I'd have to assume that Amador makes most of its money from trout fisherman in the late fall, winter, and early spring. So if they don't put the trout in, they don't make revenue.

It makes complete sense financially to keep stocking. If they stop stocking then people stop catching. When people aren't catching fish then they'll stop going. When people stop going, the lake stops making money. When a business stops making money... well I think you get point.

You also need to remember that amador raises their own fish. Right now their rearing ponds are drying up and losing oxygen. That's the reason for the increase in stocking numbers but smaller fish. They would rather stock the fish than have them die in the ponds.

What are talking about? There are 2 streams that flow into amador. Jackson which is controlled by the county and Carson which comes from Pardee. The only real time water flows out is when the lake spills over the spillway.


There are fish in Jackson but you can't get to it by foot. It's also closed to fishing right now.

The city of Jackson discharges treated sewage into Jackson creek.

Define treated sewage. Are we talking kinda runny chocolate ice cream, or the cleaner than tap water that they irrigate the local park with?

Sounds like your tapatalk is crappy as well. At least yours work. I haven't been able to sign on with tapatalk for weeks. It doesn't seem to be able to connect to the server.

Nah I love my tapatalk. Only negative thing I can think of is not being able to delete posts but I don't mind. I like making you guys do a little extra work here and there ;)
