    Re: Los Vaqueros report

    Got there at 6am waited for the gates to open. Rented a boat and headed to troll the eastern shoreline for nothing. Then we anchored up in one of the eastern coves, and by my 10th cast I hook a nice 5 pound salmon. It put up a decent fight for about a minute then the wind started to kick up and we had to go back in. ( white caps are crazy ) That was it for the day went to the marina to get my mug and the fish weighed a little more than 4.5#. The fishing looked pretty slow on the banks for trout but there were a bunch of people fishing. Not many people had stringers out in the water.

    We got lucky, the winds that day were only 8-12mph. But the electric boat we had seemed to have a new engine on it and it was very powerful. U can always check the lakes weather conditions on their website(http://www.ccwater.com/losvaqueros/conditions.asp) Winds should be ok this weekend. I might be heading out there again soon to check it out. Good luck if you do go out there!

    Re: Los Vaqueros report

    How heavy of a weight should I use to get it down say like 30ft? I want to see if i would still be able to use my ultra light gear can handle the weight.

    Re: Los Vaqueros report

    There are some special trolling weights that I saw in a cabelas cataloge that look nice. Put one on there and then just tie on your leader and your bait. Thats about the only way i could think of getting down deep without leacore/downriggers. Maybe deep bait fishing or drifting would work. I think tragedyspring sumed up leadcore line up pretty well, except that we always use about 10 feet of clear 6-8lb leader and still have good luck.

    is there any other way of getting to that water dept without downriggers or leadcore line? I want to use my ultra light tackle!! Maybe I just gotta dunk some PB for them then
