Have many of you fished the opening Friday at Pardee before? If so, was it a zoo? And how did you do?
We were thinking of going this Friday. It's supposedly going to rain Friday, so maybe this will keep the crowds down?
Anyone here going to be there Friday?

:)I fished opening day at Pardee a few times, can be a nightmare, especially when the fish truck arrives, people fishing far away from you will gather their gear and get right on your shoulder to fish, plus, if you catch a fish look-out, MORE people will squeeze in!

People used to be polite and ask if you minded if they fished near you, now, it seems the 'tude is "f-you, I paid to fish here and I'll fish where I want."

There's a guy who fished the "mud hole every year, shows up with his rubber boots on and as soon as somebody catches a fish, he moves right in on them.
His son apologized to me last year about it, but I just laughed it off, but did thank the son for recognizing his da's wrong behavior.

I like to go during the week, if possible, less crowded.

Last year, there was some people who fished the mud hole and payed no attention to limits, they would take five or ten fish up to their vehicle and come back to fish for more.
I mentioned the limit to them and they claimed to not understand, a language barrier.

Apparently, the same activity is happening at Lake Amador.

Anyway, good luck to all who go on opening day!

I would love to see the game warden hook up with some of those type.....
usually once you start talking $$$$$$$ the language barrier disappears quickly ;) ;)

I know I plan to be a little more vocal to some of these knuckleheads this year. Ya know it's really too bad that DFG doesn't have the resources to police this like they do on the coast for Abalone. Granted it's a little easier on the coast because there are only a few places to patrol. But just once I'd like to see them nab one of these jokers like they do Ab poachers. I've seen guys hauled off for being over limit like they were bank robbers or something. One can only hope...
