Trolled for a limit today using tactics gleaned from recent sniffer reports here. *Biggest was 6 lbs, 10 oz on J-9 Firetiger Rapala. *Others were enticed by a gold/red Cleo, and orange/red wedding ring with crawler trailer. *On the water at 9 am, off at 2. * Top-lined at 1.3 - 1.6 GPS mph, 100 feet behind boat. *All fish taken in sight of the dam. *Will post a pic if I can break the code. *Thanks to all fellow sniffers for your informative, time-saving inputs.

Nice job after a year layoff. Wish I could sneak over there tomorrow. Looks like the bite is on.

OK now I have to go fishing this weekend. :) It looks like the bite is on again. I was there last week and managed two and missed like 10 strikes. Time to start pulling larger lures.

The launch $4.00, a permit is $4.00, parking is $6.00 unless you get a 12 month pass for parking, that'll cost you $55.00. Maybe $65.00, I can't remember for sure but I get a pass for the dog as well *8-). At any rate the yearly parking pass is the way to go and it's good at any EBRP.

Is the annual pass more for non-residents of Alameda County??

Like I said, the parking pass is good for any East Bay Regional Park, not all of them are in Alameda County....or other counties. ;) 8-)

“Regular Angler” - $250. *Annual entry, boat launch, parking and fishing permit. *It’s paid for in 21 trips.

“Senior, Disabled, Student Angler”, - $150, same bennies. *Paid for in 13 trips. *I just got my Senior Angler Permit.

Those are for Alameda and Co Co Cty residents. Non-residents it is $325 for Regular Angler, don't see what it is for seniors.
