Camanche is a fabulous place to find Bass. The largest one was caught June 2015 by Kevin Miranda of Sacramento weighing 18.17 pounds. Shoreline access is available to anglers at both the North and South shores and upriver only by boat. There is a marina on the North and South shores, both have a six lane launch ramp, berthing, storage and rental boats.
The resort noted August 2015 “Due to drought conditions reports from anglers remain slow although activity at the fish stations show folks are catching and cleaning daily. NOTICE: A new south shore low water ramp has been opened for launching as of 8/28/15. Both north shore ramps are open.”
80,000 pounds of trout are stocked between October and June, each weighing over a pound. A $4.00 fishing access fee is charged per angler, per day. All of the money collected funds the stocking program and to improve the lake’s overall fishery. The large trout pond at South Shore is a perfect place to take children fishing.
Due to the growing presence of the invasive Zebra and Quagga mussel in California, boat inspections and interviews are required prior to entry. For more information click here or call (866) 763-5121.
