    Re: San pablo reservoir help

    Hello everyone,
    Sorry for the late report. My daughter and I had a blast today at the reservoir. We got on the water late today but that's okay today was her day. We got to the reservoir around 11 am she was hungry so we ate and then she wanted to play on the play ground so we did. Finally was ready to fish we got on the water around 1pm fished until 4pm all boats must be off the water by 4. Scow canyon and sandy point for only one bite and she had a good bite on her frozen fishing pole and that was it . But we had a blast so much fun that she wants to head back tomorrow so that's the game plan

    Re: San pablo reservoir help

    Do you need to add weight to your line to get the lures down to a certain depth? I'll be bringing powerbait just in case things slow. I used to bass fish here a ton as a kid and we always did really well. Never done well with trout, but caught some catfish too.
    Hoping this weekend is a success either way!

    Re: San pablo reservoir help

    I've caught trout at San Pablo Res on Mepps Aglia spinners, Wedding Rings, Needlefish, & small Speedy Shiners.

    I would not be surprised to hear that the folks using baits (powerbait/gulp) may out catch us folks trolling at SPR.

    Re: San pablo reservoir help

    My buddy wants to go fishing here this weekend and rent a boat. I've never trolled before, so does anyone have any tips or recommendations on how to troll here? Any advice on lures to use as well? I know they just stocked, so hopefully we can catch a few fish!

    Perfect for top-line trolling. Almost limited out. I never have, bit I but they'd be good jigs if you put a couple split shot right above on a swivel.
    I troll lures as well, seems to work for me, I have a ton of stuff in my "Wizzard's Cave".....Jetspray
