Hello all,
My girlfriend suggested that "We" go camping and fishing before the summer weather ends. Of course I have to jump on that! I live in Sac, and I was wondering if any of you had any recommendations for a smaller lake. I'm really trying to avoid driving over a couple of hours just to keep it safe, if you know what I mean ;D. This lake would have to be Lab friendly, and hopefully have some good bass fishin. I will be taking a small 10 ft alum boat, and would even be happy if we just had to use the trolling motor. Thank you all for taking the time to read my post.

Well u mentioned bass, but there are some great trout streams/reserviors/lakes that are between 1 and 2 hours away. Ice House/Loon Lake/Wrights Lake/Union Valley are real close right up 50. Good trout/kokanee fishing.

I'd say go to Amador ,its expensive to go but well worth it for the fishing. The bass bite has been very good recently and as the water continues to cool down it should only get better. Its a small lake and this last 3day weekend the place is almost deserted. There is no water skiing or any other boating activity like that permitted. If you get there early there are about 8-10 sites where you can beach your boat in front of your camp site. No matter where you go let us know how you did

Amador is good if you want to fish, but its not the greatest campground I've been to. I'd prefer a place with more trees and stuff.

The good thing about Amador is you have Pardee and Camanche right next to it. If you camp at one you are only 10 or 15 away from the others. Pardee is a EBMUD lake so there are no PWC or skiers, only fishermen.

Take a look at Sugar Pine. Its a small lake with nice campgrounds. There are Rainbow and Browns along with Black Bass and Bluegill. Good ramp with dock,about 25 miles East of Auburn,past Foresthill :)

Just when up early this week to lake kirkwood. camped there and fished caples and red lake. caples was very windy and the fishing was slow, drove up the road to red lake and had my limit in a little over an hour. nice pan size brookies. all you had to do was toss out a line. everything worked and there were only two other people on the entire lake. well worth the drive.
