Amador again, 4-12-15.
On the road at 5:30. I get to hwy 12 and it's closed again. I take the detour that runs along the river and eventually puts me onto Liberty road. I met up with our friends Chris and Iya at the lake just after seven. I was in their boat today.
We trolled our way to the back of the Carson creek arm. Got pretty far in too. There is a steady amount of water coming in from Pardee. We banked and fished it for a while. Saw fish but no hits.

Same story when we went into the Jackson creek arm. Lots of fish on the finder but only one wanted to play. I picked up a pretty 17" Lassen from shore using white power eggs and garlic scent. (Tomorrows lunch)!

We finished the day up with a few more trolling laps near the dam area. No more action. We called it by 3pm.

Back through the detour and finally I get to the Antioch bridge. All cars stopped and I can see emergency vehicle lights at the very top. I turn on the radio and it says that just moments before a person on a motorcycle had been in an accident and was thrown from the bridge into the water.
It took a while but they slowly started letting cars through. There were boats searching the water for the mans body. Wow that is two deadly accidents in a row on my travels to Amador. So sad!

Anyway, It was nice to spend the day with friends. Got a new sunburn on top of the one from Friday. Gonna rub some Aloe Vera on it. Thinking of hitting Don Pedro next weekend. I hear it's doing well.
Hugs and fishes,

Good pics and report, Kristy.

Looks like a good time with friends and a good fish as well.

You really need to get the CAlifornia Road Reports app on your phone.
Lots less time spent looking at brake lights and mayhem.
