As of press time, outstanding trout action was underway for anglers throughout northern and central California for both bank anglers and boaters. In the Motherlode foothills, both Amador and Camanche are kicking out some very handsome trout, including some epic lightning trout at Amador. Moving north, Collins Lake is producing limits and near limits for boaters and bankies, including some rainbows that approach the 10-pound mark. Folsom is a sleeper. The trout bite isn’t red hot, but the fish that are being caught are beautiful holdovers and natives that measure up to 19 inches! Photo courtesy of MARIO CASTILLO, Sacramento.
