9 June 7 - 21, 2019 VOL.38 • ISS. 13 Pardee Is Full Of Hungry Trout & Kokanee! L ake Pardee stands out among California reservoirs for the fine trout, kokanee and black bass fishing that it provides for families either going on day trips or camping adventures there. With heavy plants of rainbow trout in the 1 to 5-pound range throughout the season, ninety percent of the anglers go there for the trout or kokanee. Though the trout average 1 to 1-1/2 pounds, plenty of trophy- sized rainbows, including some beautiful holdovers, are caught every year at Pardee. Rainbows are not the only salmonid caught at Pardee. The lake features a sleeper wild popula- tion of German browns that spawns in the Mokelumne River. The other salmonid fishery is for kokanee salmon. The kokanee are running large this year and creating quite a bit of excitement. Pardee features some of the best-managed and family-friendly facilities of any reservoir in the state, with beautifully landscaped grounds, a well-main- tained marina and launch ramp and superb camping facilities.
