View Full Version : Folsom Lake 2/15

Fished Folsom with my buddy John and his son Ethan on Saturday. Launching at Granite Bay is now no problem -- they even have a dock in the water next to the paved ramp. Lake is still very, very low -- but still plenty of water to fish. Water was very murky at the ramp so we fished toward the dam. Caught 4 nice rainbows to 17 inches -- all either toplining or on the wire at 7 feet deep. 2 on Cripplures, 1 on Krocodile, and 1 on a Vance's dodger and nightcrawlere. All the lures were brass and red or white with red. Visibility was only about 6 inches, so I was surprised we did as well as that. Should only get better as the water clears. Coming back in it looked like the water was clearer by the ramp than at the dam -- maybe we should have gone upstream!
