Silver Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Amador County)

by Doug Busey

The level is at 103 percent. The snow melt has slowed down. The CDFW planted the lake this week with catchable rainbow trout. The boat ramp is open and used at your own risk. Keep an eye on your depth finder as there is one way in and out of the main lake area. Hold more to the left bank and follow the creek channel out. Watch for prop eating rocks. The fishing has been fair for macs early AM and small rainbow by the spillway. The east campground is open, while the west side is still closed for repairs.


Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
