I'm taking my little cousin fishing for my first time ever!! I know all 3 of these places are planting this week but I was just wondering the best one out of all 3 to take him to where he would have good oportunities to catch one.. Any Info would be really nice! :smiley:

I can personally vouch for hagan having no trout activity, maybe a few catfish, I just called the troutline, and there wasn't a message, they may be updating, I hope they will plant hagan. How sure are u on tthe hagan plant this week? Probably give elkgrove a shot in a little bit today.

Elkgrove was a bust, only action was possible male on male.

B_RAN Hagen can be cool but sometimes gets crowded and enless you hit it within 3 days of a plant the fish are gone. I think they started changing up the days on plants to some locals have it down I know I don't know it personally anymore since I moved out of the area.

It's on the recording as far as hagan being stocked for this week. Hagan is planted by american river fish hatchery so if you called fishin in the city......yeah they have no message but they stocked last week at howe for sure. Took my son over there and he got 3 fatties and of course I caught a dink and missed every other bite I got. Cormorants out fished everybody though...lol!!! :stomper:

Action at hagan, I think the guys r throwing flies attached to a bobber?

I wrangled one, would have had a meal if he came with a few more friends, but it was nice to finally slime coat my hands, left as it started pouring., guys were catching them left and right. A lot of talk about mather and willow hill by the guys with less luck.

Possibly headin back later, was real crowded, noone there had any manners when the biting was on.

You know man I'm pretty sure they don't charge a parking fee in the winter you guys should have been fine. Water clarity is usually pretty good at Hagen too. The dang pond is so shallow with a pair of polarized glasses you could see everything in there.

Tried Willow Hill yesterday (Wed.) no hits. About 15 fishing and I saw no action. The North wind picked up so it wasn't the best for comfort. A guy I talked to said they planted Wed. morning and a couple guys got their limits near the planting spot. Good luck if you go there...not a bad little lake. :1fish0023mn::

That pond is full of trout and no one can get to em and I know why. It's killing me that I just sold my truck and have no immediate way to transport my kayak, so I'll spill the beans:

If you have some sort of floatation device (pontoon, float tube, kayak), find the stream inlet. It's hard to find because the whole shoreline is covered with toolies. Look for it at the Northeast end. Use a dodger/worm combo or I'm sure a Wooliebugger would also work and concentrate in the sandy area in 4-6 ft of water. That is all. I have done my good deed for the day.

All I ask for in return is somebody tell me how it goes...I would go there myself but can't transport my kayak right now.

Go get em!
