After getting a complete skunk for the last day of 2011, I decided to try shadow cliffs yesterday with my friend blake. We arrived at 6:00, the gates werent even open, and we weren't the first ones there! There was about two people there, and they were on my intended dock. after reading a previous report on this site, my friend tried the cove where they plant the fish. Just at the crack of dawn, my friend called me and yelled "fish on!" for a small DFG 10" trout. I had to go over to net it, yet it was a baby. I decided to grab my rods, and set up next to him. Within 10 minutes of setting my rod down, I saw the strike indicator slowly go up, then my rod actually fell and was being pulled into the water. I yelled to Blake for the net, and it was a 12" ranibow, too. I lost him at the net. I later had 3 more hook ups, with a total of four hook ups, only managing to get one to the net. The other three were my fault, for i jumped the gun a tad early and set the hook not good enough. I caught 2, lost one at the net, but kept the other one which measured 14 1/2", and blake caught two but only kept one also. He too had several bites, overall a nice day at shadow cliffs.

Yea, I generally fish the dock just past the bay, but after reading your report we fished their successfully. I know what you mean, the bite was DEAD
after 1030, not even another bite.

We were using rainbow powerbait nuggets bassboy
