Rainbow Trout - Lake Berryessa

Post by LDUBS »

I managed to put four in the bag yesterday morning. Rainbows ranging from 12” to 18”. Lost two others before they even got to the surface.

I was trolling with spoons at 35’ to 45’ deep in water up to 150’ deep. It was a pretty nice day with a light breeze and there was actually blue sky instead of the smoke from all the wildfires.

This 23 mile long lake is currently at 58% of capacity. Of course, it would be unusual to be at 100% this time of year. I mentioned in a previous post that the normal launch is high and dry. The alternate launch is steep then flattens out where it enters the water. I had to back in so far that I literally stepped into water from the driver’s door. And, it is a long hike to where we have to park. Of course, when all is said and done I’m grateful to have a ramp available.

BTW, I think you LMB fisherman would like this lake. There is a lot of varied underwater topography, canyons, long fingers, coves, points, etc.
