I suspect if it loses much more water the marina area boat launch area is done.I was very depressed to see it this low. But after reviewing it with my sons we will be going. By the way Its very cold up there.

GC, did a "drive by" yesterday, was going to let you know they had moved the marina. Man, last week there was water at the Stony Creek dam, although it was very low. Now, it's dry:duh:

Good luck when you go, looks like I won't be hitting Pardee again this year.

Thanks for the pics. Amazing to see the reservoirs so low...

I guess at least the fish are more concentrated.

Good luck when you go,

Well it looks very low but you have to remember that this is the area that has the access to the main body of the lake of which there is still lots of water. But if your banking it, Its gonna be rough. Curious to see what the burner is like.

Just Rent a Boat and help thin the kokanee populations.. Any One going up to catch some kokes? Melones is already kicking out some limits of Kokanee!!!

Ah shoot... low water at Pardee means it's gonna cost an arm and a leg to get the boat out on opener. Plus the madness of seeing people who never launch before try to launch:goodnight: in low water... I would fish shore but shore fishing the main lake without that mud lagoon is gonna be quite a challenge. There's very few spot on the main lake shoreline that produces trout and with all the people camping the night before, I smell a skunk trip coming... Maybe I'll stick to Amador and Camanche this year.

Ummm the fee launch a boat is the same whether the water is high or low.

Sorry bout that. Meant to say the hassle of launching in low water. It's already chaotic enough when there was sufficient water level now the low water level? It shall be madness... I'm not mentally prepared for it yet.:wallbash:

Well I guess if its a steep hike that could be considered a burner , leg burner that is ! With the lack of water we could all get used to that .Tightlines BF

We've tried targeting kokanee at pardee a few times with no sucess. any tips? we usually fish slingblades with either hoochies or wedding rings. It works great at bowman but not so much at pardee.

I'd really be interested in trying Pardee for Kokes. I've never caught any but would like to learn, I have 2 downriggers on my boat if anyone wants to hop in for a free ride. Just share some knowledge and you'll have free lunch, beer and a boat ride. I know they do pretty up at Pardee up near 'Indian Head' but just never have fished for them myself. I will going either way within the first month of opener.

We got nine kokanee on opening day last year using small baits like the RMT planktons in orange, pink, and green paired with small wild thing dodgers. Surface to 15' should be the depth with 100'-125' set-backs. Shrimp, Herring, and Carp Spit are all great scents for early season kokanee fishing. Early in the season you do not need large dodgers to catch fish. Small presentations are key. These fish will have super soft mouths so very light drag is a must.

I dont know how to fish for kokes , But I know how to troll for trout and I really would like to try the koke thing. I have the tackle. Sling blade and a pink hoochie....and the secret sauce....Fish finder...Down rigger..... But would need to rent a boat. I know in the spring they are not deep, maybe 20ft down. I know its gonna start getting muddy with all the showers coming in the next 10 days. MUD MESS. Dont care getting the gear out and tested, heater, mattresses, lanterns , stove and plenty of firewood to keep warm . The rest is playtime. Hope it pours....................
