    Re: Lake for this weekend

    Personally I like Stampede of those choices. Now should be a good time to get some good sized trout brown or rainbow and if your lucky a big mack. I will be out there next weekend trolling off my single man pontoon. Can't wait. Someone posted a report on here a few days back that caught some real nice macs.

    Hay Wishn2; Stampede is a great lake for 16" kok's; best time is from April 20th(w/temp 45degrees) till the 3rd of July!! You might try Spaulding hwy 20 for Salmon &Mc at the Dams; trout & some SM Bass in the warmer waters. Sly park on hwy 50 has Mc's and trout. Threr is a book: Fishing in northern Calif...that has Great info & maps a must if want to learn where and how to fish Calif!! Later...Mr Ed

    Re: Lake for this weekend

    The best I could find was a 1999 ordinance creating a trigger mechanism. They sample the lake Memorial Day, July 4, and Labor Day. If they exceed their limit then the lake is closed to 2 strokes through Oct 15, regardless of subsequent samples. I am not sure if this was a proposal or if it was implemented.

    I will call around to get the actual regulation and post. Any sugggestions on who to call?

    thanks

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    Do you know if Donner allows 2-strokes?

    Regards

    I would suggest Donner if you want to do some Kokanee fishing. *If you look at the recent topics on the Kokanee Board, members such as TS, trackertundra, Big_D, digger, and others have been pulling some nice Kokanee.

    Re: Lake for this weekend

    Sorry fo the extranious padding on my prior post.

    The question is - would you recommend towing a 20' boat and trailer to French Meadows or should I try one of the other lakes?

    Thank you for your help.

    Lake for this weekend

    After scouting, soccer, dance, dance, dance, dance, yard, honey do's ..., I finally have a day to get out this weekend for trout therapy. Three daughters ... my son and I need an estrogen break.
    I have been pretty much limitted to Folsom, but want to try one of the sierra lakes within an hour or two from Sac/Roseville. I am thinking Stampede, French Meadows, Ice House, or UVR. I tow a ~20' striper and have a down rigger. I like what I read about French meadows, but am not sure about the drive with this size boat. Any advice on the lake or techniques will be greatly appreciated.
