Fishing Line: Stripers move into the San Joaquin

The Lake Amador Resort released 1000 pounds of Mt. Lassen Hatchery rainbow trout on Friday as part of 1500 pounds for the week. Trout dough bait continues to be the top offering from the shoreline, and trollers are pulling broken-backed Rapalas at 5 to 7 feet in depth.

The best trolling action is in the back of the lake near Mountain Springs, Rock Creek, and the Jackson Creek arm with shore fishing best at the dam, the spillway, and the Blue Docks.
