hit camanche at dawn ....started at the narrows....marked lots of fish. too many diving birds, i wonder if that is spooking the bite ?? after four hours, tried the dam. my partner ray, hit a nice 2 1/2 lb rainbow on a jointed firetiger, toplining.

definitely a big movement of fish to the dam area. fishfinder was seriously busy.
we weren't paying attention, had my depth alarm off.....went from 50 feet to 7 feet, snagged my downrigger ball, tangled two lines.....decided to call it a day !

Thanks for the report crank bait!
I plan to hit Camanche again soon (hopefully 1/10).
It is a little further to drive for me, but I dont think Berryessa has the quality fish I have seen from Camanche. 8-)

Good job. I think I will be out there again soon. It sounds like the dam might be the area to target on for a while.

i have never seen this many fish at the dam......they were heavy and spread out over a good size area. it was so impressive, that on our next visit, we will work the dam first, and move to the narrows later in the day. (and yes...i have a good fishfinder !!) ;D
