It opens at either 5:30 or 6:00 am. You can camp and fish all night if you want. Get a gate card from the Lodge when you go in and you can go in and out at anytime. Here is the link for their web page. Lake Amador Resort (http://www.lakeamador.com/index.htm)

My $.02:

There are usually people in the restaurant at 5:00 or so. I have launched as early as 5:30. With the cold dry weather, I am not so sure that 0'dark thirty is much more productive than say 0700. And the latter is certainly much warmer. We launched Friday at 0600 and darn near froze our power eggs off. We got one about 0630, but the majority of the hits and fish trolling were from 0730-1030. The surface water right now is down to 56 degrees so I's not like the lake warms up slowing the bite. The other thing is there is virtually no jumping fish until the light hits the water, again around 0700.

The only exception to this slightly later launch time would be weekends. There, I think early is better just to get a jump on the ensuing flotilla that shows up on Saturday's and Sundays.

They open between 5:00 am and 5:30 a.m just depends on the day, friday they usally let you pay at the gate at 5:00 a.m other than that i pay at the cafe around 5:30. Dont know why i get there so damn early, the fish dont seem to bite untill 6:30 or later. I guess i like to freeze, but realy i still feel like a kid when im going fishing, its hard to sleep and i cant wait to get there. When that feeling goes away, i will know its time to quit fishing.

The cafe is open everyday for coffee, etc. but only does breakfast, lunch or dinner Fri-Sun. Not enough people to support being open everyday. I wonder if they would cook my catch...trout & egg? If I eat two, can I go back and catch two more? Hmmmmmm.
