Havn't fished that lake in about 10 years.. And never for trout.
Remember that lake bieng very quiet, and small? And 15 mph?
Maybe will hit it this winter..
Question.. Does that lake get low or does it pretty much stay fishable by boat all year??

well it was maybe 5-7 ft low, and not many boats at all, more bass fishing I guess, speed now 5 mph.

I can see why there were not the many boats at Los Banos Creek Res.
I ate a trout last night-------- :o :o---------absolutly AWFUL, taste like MUD & ALGE, I knew it!, when I saw all kinds of alge when I launched, even have green spots on my trailer. YUK!

nice report, bubba. sorry about the taste..........seems like another reason for catch and release... i have learned that if the meat is not red/pink it is gonna taste that way...
