Great week of fishing with the wife and boys . Great weather also, stayed on the trout pond and fished it along with the lake. Within three hous of arrival we had 10 fish on the stringer. Yellow and White eggs worked best for us. Biggest out of the pond my youngest got on Monday 6.7#er.

Trolled the lake on Tuesday, slow start then BAM , my wife starts reeling and reeling and then her arms gave out . I then helped her finish up reeling and she netted her 8.54 #er . Great fish :) :)

Even caught 4# brown in the narrows. Almost all were caught on dodger with a crawler. Also had good luck with white grubs and orange. 18 to 22' deep.

Met some fellow sniffer readers from Napa and even found out that they fish Eagle lake also. *Maybe we will see you in Aug. (Larry and family)
To end the week fished the pond this morning and caught 7 within an hour C/R two and packed the other five up. Here *is my best catch of the week *;D ;D

Looks like you had a great week. Nice brown. Lisa, if you catch a fish you need to hold it for the photo. Great job guy's. Looks like that new boat has some blood on it. I can't wait to put more it when we head up to Eagle.

It is really nice to see the little guys taking their parents fishing and WOW are those some nice fish. They sure have been producing some big trout at Camanche this year!!
Thanks for the great post.

The only problem with taking the kid they only let me reel in the turtle.
I do all the work for what a turtle, would traded it for anything :) :)

I forgot in the original post to say that we did catch one trout with parisites on it " cocpods or how ever you spell it". but all the other trout out of the lake were clean.

TCtrout, it was a pleasure meeting you this last weekend and I have to say that fish is unbelievable. We fished Camanche with MUCH less success but we did have a good go in the Trout Pond. Anyways, it was great meeting a fellow sniffer that definately knows how to fish. See you at Eagle Lake in a few months. Matt, Lance and Larry
