Well, the title tells it all, i am going to folsom lake on sunday, wondering if anyone else is going and or what to use. i have a lone downrigger so i am going to stack my poles on it. i dug up this link on folsom, and i was wondering what type of needle fish you use, and how deep they are. thanks for the help,
P.S. i am "fishing blind", in other words i dont have a fish finder, so thats why i am asking. thanks for the help again,

I am no pro by all means, I have had some luck occasionally. I usually troll back and forth around the dam area about 25ft and 35ft to start if nothing then I go down to 50ft. That's about the best advice I can give, maybe someone can add more. Good luck!

Thanks fishinator, i was thinking of running a worm with a watermellon dodger at 35ft, and a pearl bikini needlefish behind a sling blade (chrome with red on it), at 25'. Sound like a good set up?

Cop car needlefish usually works pretty well at Folsom. I have had alot of luck in the past with the rainbow pattern rapala. I usually topline it. Good luck out there.

Trout_Terminator, n2trout has some good advice. The water is getting colder so start out top-lining.
