Fishing here is a big draw, Amador Lake especially, contains giant Donaldson-strain cutbow salmonids. Fish 24 hours a day 7 days a week, all year round. The Lockhart family at Amador Fish Hatchery stock the lake with that more than 50 years of research to producing a fish, that is 30 percent steelhead, 50 percent rainbow and 20 percent cutthroat. They are hard fighting, surface-dwelling, acrobatic and they taste good too!
Besides trout, Lake Amador held the Largemouth Bass record for Northern California for over 10 years at 17.1 lbs. Other trophy fish including catfish up to 40 pounds are caught in the summer. Surely the fish population will provide you with hours of exciting fishing entertainment. Enjoy the peaceful adventure on the 400-acre, 13 1/2 miles of beautiful shoreline and return often.
Lake Amador now has an expanded launch ramp with new docks and a paved parking area. The parking area is now lighted at night for those nocturnal fishing adventures. No Jet Ski’s or Water Skiing allowed.
