Hot Kokanee Fishing @ Don Pedro! 7-15-2022

Return client Frank and New Clients and Long time friends John and Linda were out for a day of fishing at Don Pedro. I set four rods at various depths all with different offerings. It wasn’t long and we were getting bit and landing some fish, the action was not as fast as the previous day but we were doing very well, They did loose several in the process and I accidently knocked one off with the net, but we still finished the trip by 10:15 with three limits of kokanee and one Rainbow trout. A great day with great people on the waters of Don Pedro……. Thanks again everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent Morning @ New Melones 7-5-2022

New clients Ken brought along two of his friends and one being a return client for years ago. The morning was very smoky from a near by fire. We had a breeze and after setting four rods we started to mark a few fish but no takers, we continued on and finally found many more marks and they were biters as we started to put a few fish in the bag, then things really picked up, but as most people know that loosing these fiesty kritters is just part of the deal. Then we reached the 14th fish then wind died down to flat conditions and the bite died along with it, however we lost one more fish before we boated the 15th and final fish of the morning. Great day with three great guys. Thanks again everyone and thanks for fishing Gold Country Sportfishing.

New Melones Kokanee and trout 6-30-2022

Returning clients Gerti and Paul were back onboard with me for some fishing in hopes of catching kokanee. The morning started out with a fish ripping the line out of the clip on its way down, so we missed that one then we had another on only to be lost just before the net. Then the morning became slow and the weather was warming and the bite became tougher for us and by 10;30 it was getting hot and they decided to get off the water before it really got hot and they ended the morning with four kokanee and a trout. Thanks again you two for coming out always great seeing the both of you!!!

New Melones Kokanee 6-25-2022

New clients Jason and Haden were onboard with me for some kokanee fishing on Saturday June 25th. After launching the boat and getting the four rods set I explained on what to look for and what to do as they were new to this type of fishing. It was not long and we had our first fish on and Hayden grabbed the rod and the our and his first kokanee in the Reliable fish bag. The action was not fast but we finally found small pods of fish that was willing to bite. We had one really nice Rainbow on and after jumping a few times and came so close to netting it came off and found out that it broke one of the hooks so that’s why we lost. The day was a hot one and by 9:30 we had 8 kokanee and Jason said lets give it to about 10:30 and wouldn’t you know we were done at 10:05 with two nice limits of kokanee from the waters of New Melones. They got a couple new hats to wear. Thanks again you two and Thanks for fishing Gold Country Sportfishing………………
