    Re: Amandor 2/11/14

    I was there yesterday from 9 til noon. They started biting around 10:30. The dam has a lot of trash floating in the water. The water was muddy but they were still biting. I got one on a kastmaster about 15 ft out and one on rainbow power bait about 8ft from the shore. And then I had one that decided to keep my kastmaster at about 15-20 ft out. Both km hits were with no weight, just lure.

    Jackson Creek this year has been the dirtiest part of the lake. It's so low that once you get back there it's full of silt. I've been getting all my fish trolling 6 to 12 feet down.

    Swung by Amador on the way home earlier, LOTS more debris near the dam and still pretty cloudy water.

    Melones has been kicking out some fish, that's as close to Manteca as Amador. Camanche was slow for me and others that I talked to but Pardee will also be Open

    Man Amador muddies up so fast, maybe because it is small, the other local reservoirs I've been to recently are still gin Clear. I tried to fish it once when it was muddy like that, I somehow broke the sunk with a minijig.

    I've seen it take 2 weeks to clear. It may also help to know that it is suppose to rain on saturday.
