    Re: Folsom-wednesday

    I live 3 min from Folsom and fish it pretty often. One or two fish for the day is doing good on this lake as the level varies wildy from week to week. I don't think either launch has a fish cleaning station. Best bets are the long channel arm up rattlesnake bar or salmon falls. Beale Point is the best to get to rattlesnake, brown's ravine for salmon falls.

    I would recommend a small broken back rapala behind a flasher like a willow leaf. Nightcrawler behind a flasher also works.

    Good luck and let us know how you do.

    My goal is to head out to Folsom lake, THURSDAY NOT WEDNESDAY, for the first time. Plan on launching from Folsom Point around 9:00am. Granite bay launch seems to big and busy. yes/no?

    Question: Which is better for launching, Folsom Point or Browns Ravine. Do both have a fish cleaning stations? As mentioned, This is my first time on this lake.

    I don't have a VHF radio yet (on order) so if any of ya see my wife and I trolling in a 14' alum Westcoaster W/ a merc 25, DRs, and a blue bimini top, PLEASE cruise by and say hello!

    Tight Lines, Jim
