Folsom Lake

Rating - Good   

Thursday, Oct 21 2021
The trout and salmon bite is on and is steady. Many anglers are trolling the deeper water (55-80) for kings and the top (20) for trout. Nightcrawlers trolled behind a dodger should work well for trout alongside speedy shiners tipped with some anchovy or shad for those feisty landlocked kings. The bass fishing is picking up; anglers are catching a couple of spots and smallmouth here and there, while fishing drop shot rigs and tubes off of the main lake points. These fish are starting the pre-spawn; try targeting these fish near deep water access to intercept them while they are looking for good area to set up shop.
