  1. Re: Looking for a good place to take kids fishing

    A little late, but Willow Springs behind Folsom high school is a GREAT place to take the kids. Tons of bass and bluegill in the summer and they stock trout in the winter

    I agree, they have eliminated the ability to have the wild steelhead population return to pre-dam levels. However, its about diversification of the genetic line that is so beneficial. Steelhead,...

    Re: Bag Limit Proposal on the American

    Who cares if they are hatchery fish, the idea is to get a naturally breeding population in the American again, thats why they spent so much money and time on fixing the redds at Sailor Bar.

    Re: Lake Natoma- 2-6-19

    Trout can breed in a pretty wide variety of areas. Yes, they have ideal locations, but as long as there is water movement to keep eggs oxygenated, they will survive. I'm sure there are a few places...

    Re: Net required at the mid!

    Requiring a net is enough to chase you away from a lake like Pyramid? For catch and release, nothing beats keeping the fish in a rubber net underwater while you remove the hook. If you don't plan on...

    Re: Lake Natoma- 2-6-19

    It was my understanding that they don't stock Natoma and haven't for a long time. A 14" fish is only a few years old so you would have been catching Natoma bred bows.

    stickman, can you confirm the trout planting there? I have heard multiple times that it is, but I can't find any information from the "fishing in the city" group about it.

    Re: 6wt fly reel suggestions

    A click and pawl reel could have brought the fish in as well, just have to fight it differently. I get your point, and fishing is always better with a $1000 rod and a $500 reel but its not necessary....

    Re: 6wt fly reel suggestions

    If you're going for trout, a strong drag isn't needed nor is a sealed drag. They are both ideal, but not necessary which is good. Makes for more options.

    I love my Orvis clearwater reel. But you...

    Re: 6wt fly reel suggestions

    What are you fishing for? Saltwater/freshwater? What type of line are you looking to put on it? Is having a spare spool important to you?

    Re: Rocksnot!!! Felt is not why it is happening

    If not dried and cleaned properly, felt can hold onto creepy crawlies and transfer them between bodies of water. If, however, you clean them properly and let them dry out, they are perfectly safe.
