The story behind the Rancho Seco Recreation areas and the fantastic fishing it features is fascinating.
The Rancho Seco Recreation area features a 120 acre reservoir that boasts rainbow trout, Florida-strain largemouth bass, redear sunfish, bluegill and crappie. Fishing at the family oriented facility, operated by the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, (SMUD) and the Rocky Mountain Recreation Company, is a year round affair.
The reservoir, supplied by the Folsom South Canal, was built to serve as a source for emergency cooling water in the event of a nuclear accident. After the power plant was decommissioned in a ballot measure approved by the region’s voters November 1990, the lake become a year-round recreational facility.
On February 20, the Norcal Trout Anglers Tournament Tour will pay Rancho Seco a visit.
