FOLSOM LAKE

Rating - Fair   

Monday, May 16 2022
King salmon in excess of 10 pounds continue to be the story here, and although there arent many of them, dedicated trollers can expect one or two of the big kings per outing pulling Speedy Shiners, Matrix Paddletails, or rolling shad behind an 8-inch glow dodger. Rainbow trou are abundant at depths from 30 to 60 feet on Speedy Shiners, GVF Draggins in Pina Colada or blade/crawler combinations. Bass fishing remains solid with reaction baits near the rocks, but recreational boaters take over the lake by 10:00 a.m. The lake dropped slightly to 87 percent. The launch ramps at Browns Ravine, Granite Bay, and Rattlesnake remain open.
