Amador 4-10-15
I was on my own today and didn't hit the road until almost 7am. I was still making good time until traffic stopped on hwy 12 just before Flag city. Didn't move an inch for over an hour. There was a really bad accident. Sadly I come to find out later it was a fatal one.

I finally got to Amador about 9:30.
I paid for the day and then drove back over the dam and down the dirt road to the end. I fished there for about three hours without even a tap. I saw at least three caught from boats trolling though.

I found a fanny pack full of gear at my spot and since I was going to move to another spot anyways I made a quick side trip back to the cafe and had them put it in their lost and found. (Seriously hoping for some good fish karma).
I park much closer to the dam this time. Set up shop again. No luck for me or anyone who wasn't right in the very corners of the dam. They were tearing it up. Several trout and at least two lightning trout. They were using power eggs. But 20 ft away you got nothing.

It was a beautiful day though and the lake is really full but being in the sun with no shade all day got the best of me by 2:45. At least I am pretty in pink lol.
On my way home I discovered that Flag city now has an ARBY'S!!!! Yay!
Anyways, here are the pics from the day. Happy Friday!

Wow, you'd think at least a bite would come your way for all you went through! Amador can get pretty miserable when the weather gets hot. To bad you didn't try Pardee, lots of limits Friday and easy to find shade!!!!!!!!!!! Good on you for turning in the pack, hopefully the owner will get it back.
