Havn't fished there lately. Have heard that they have started to plant. Have had good success there in the past usually planters with a few hold overs in the mix.

the fishing is and can be good, good time to topline, last I fished it was last year, I found that the fish from there get a double dose of algae taste, that lake has algae everywhere, I won't go back poor quality in my opinion.

Well I've been there and it was cool. I caught a brown trout they stock them there.Yes brown trout. They also have rainbows, bass. If you go inside park by the picnic area next to the water. Or if you park out by the dam go down turn left and it is real deep if you fish off the rocks. Try a worm with a marshmellow dipped in berkeley corn dip.

I don't think the last two posts are talking about Los Banos Creek Res. I have been there many times and there is no algae and you can't drive down near the dam. This lake is outside of Los Banos off Hwy 152. You take Volta road off Hwy 152 and follow the signes.
