Nice Pics. I've been wanting to get up there and check out the caves for a while. I'm guessing now's the time considering in a month or so the heat might be a it much to have an enjoyable hike.

I have a recipe out of one of my bbq books for Salmon. I think if your doing fillets it'd work just the same. I'll bring it over and you can take a look at it.

Thanks for all of the reply's and the tips! I've had my traps for a couple of years but I've never really had a chance to use them. I had heard that Lake Natoma had a good number of them, but considering the traffic on that lake I was afraid of leaving my traps out overnight would lead to them getting stolen. Maybe I just need to be creative. I'll be in Stampede over the weekend, maybe I'll give it a try there and see what happens. Thanks again.

It looks like I might have to take a shot at both and compare. Thanks for the Fallen Leaf lake tip. I had heard that Fallen Leaf and Tahoe had quite a few, as did some of the lakes off 88. I get the feeling that I'd prob catch more up in those lakes than I would fishing the Sac directly. Last time I did that I only came up with a handful.  The sloughs are probably more productive. I'd hit the rice fields but from what I understand, most farmers out there charge people to drop traps out there nowadays since the trapping started getting out of hand. Kokes and crawdads sounds like an awesome catch and cook trip!

I've been interested in going out and laying some traps for some crawdads up in the mountain lakes. I always got the feeling that them being up in cleaner water at altitude the mudbugs would be better tasting. However other folks tell me that the high altitude crawdads have tougher shells, and are more of a pain to cook than their valley cousins. Has anyone tried both and can give me an opinion on which ones are better eating? Now that it's warming up I'd like to get those traps going and see if I can't get a few buckets for the pot. Thanks!

Had a great time this past weekend at the meet up although my stay was a little abbreviated.  Just wanted to thank Brian and his wonderful wife, Kevin and Ken for letting my hang out at their camp. I didn't get a chance to meet everyone as I left early but was happy to meet the folks that I did. I came a way with a hell of a sunburn but otherwise it was a great time. Thanks everyone!

I'll be showing up on Thursday and fishing then through Friday afternoon/evening but I'll be heading back after that. So I'll be out on the derby and the potluck. But hopefully I'll still get a chance to meet most of ya guys and get some good fishing in. I'll be over with Kevin. Getting all my stuff figured out today and loaded on the truck so tomorrow I can just split. I'll see you guys up there.

Yep, I'll def be there Friday and hopefully into Sat. I gotta be back out by Saturday afternoon as I gotta head down to Stockton to see a boxing match with the old man. Plug-n-Jug apparently hasn't looked in the mirror lately, he's def gotten a few more whacks from the ugly stick that yours truly lol. See you guys then.

I heard that it was a good lake for crawdads but have never actually tried it.

Cool, well I hope I can  meet up with you guys at some point. Right now I'm pretty much picking up all the info I can on youtube, and from what folks post on FB or various boards. It seems like it's been a pretty good season so far.

General Talk / Sacramento/American River Salmon
« on: October 02, 2019, 04:43:02 PM »
Any of you guys fish for salmon up here in the Sacramento area? I'm pretty new to kayak fishing in general and want to do some salmon fishing but don't see too many yakers out there. Most guys seem to stick to the bank or have boats. Any tips, or any of you guys go out there regularly and want to meet up? Tips and reports would be appreciated.

I know this is an old post but I'm kinda having the same issue as far as trying to find a spot for my transducer. I know the scupper hole route won't work that great cause it'll just smash into the pavement when I try to kayak in, and although I installed rails to the front of the kayak, its not sturdy enough for me to trust it not snapping off. Do you guys have pics of how you did your in the hull mounts? Any ideas? Thanks fellas.

General Talk / Re: Native v. Hobie for Ocean
« on: August 23, 2018, 05:26:54 PM »
Thanks for the  replys fellas. I was thinking that perhaps Hobie was more popular because it was faster or had more thrust for the amount of peddling you were doing; along with the mirage drive being more weedless. But it seems like the major opinion is that they just got there first. Ultimately, I think it'll come down to actually test driving them. But this discussion has def convinced me that a Native does have the "umph" to get out there and perform on the ocean.

Awesome, thanks for responding guys. Sorry for the late reply, my internet has been down for over a week. Yea if you guys wanna head out or just talk about it a bit drop me a line on the PM. I'd def like to meet  up and just hit the river here sometime this season.
