Can anyone recommend a place or depth to drop a minnow trap at Folsom?

Find boulders that go into the water and set your trap no deeper then 5' deep. The minnows will be hiding in the boulders/rocks. Hand full of dry dog food will do the trick.

You can try Hammer's trick too, 2 fresh donuts in the trap, never caught so many minnows ever, (at Tahoe) ;D I laughed at Hammer the whole time the trap was in the water, this time he had the last laugh ;D We pulled up so many minnows that we couldn't count them 8)very cool 8)

Donuts? Maybe I'll send some coffee down too!

Yeah, regular glazed donuts has been the ticket for me too when catching minnows. *I've also faired well with lemoncake.
