    Im planning on tueday leave my house at about 2-3 pm maybe earlier tuesday. I have a little saturn 4 door car so i dont think i can fish at the dam seems everyone says you need a truck to go there but if anyone wants to go i have room for 2 more its just a lil 4 banger so it might take 2 hours lol but we will get there. I just dont know if i can get bait there or what.

    The road is paved bro, all the way to the Dam, you need a truck to launch a boat!

    Yeap looks like im going to san carlos on tuesday. what time do you guys normally leave to head there? Yeah my wife and i went to rosie yesterday night didnt even get a bite on blue gill chicken liver and worms. i think it was because of the wind it was a little choppy. I even said heck with it and tried a texas rigged worm maybe i would get a 74 lb flathead...... i havent cause a 1 oz falthead just channels so i am hoping for one soon. hopfully i can find a place to fish there where i wont have to make my wife hike up a huge hill.. lol my wife is a bigger fisher then me... well prbably not but close she she has to go.

    the hike is not that bad. the mountainruns strait into the water, really nowere to set up your chairs, thats only bad thing about being by the dam shore line. there is a cove right before the dam with a huge sand bar might be better for a overnighter. also wear jean pants if possible if your gonna hike down. that mountain is full of broken glass bottles. goood luck out there!

    i read you guys posts all the time and enjoy them. but this one started with question, and you guys hijacked it. newbie asked a honest question guys. can you help him out? not trying to start problem, but this isn't like most of you.

    Hey matt, no baitfish seemed to be imposible to get, didnt mean to partake in the hi-jacking of your thread, just wanted to wait until we got back today to give you a erport, instead of saying I didn't know. Shore fishing all together seemed very limited, and we had absolute hell trying to catch baitfish, and we had a boat, plus fished the rocky out croppings in the lake

    yeah i wouldnt spend my money on taking a trip there if i were u. u need to just go to rosie or the salt.its kinda hard to shore fish rosi at this time just cause the lake level is high but i think the river is always good

    I know you dont plan on going anymore but just an fyi; a throw will work great. I used mine while I was out there and was able to get bait in minutes shad,blugill&carp!:0a26:
