Regular Camanche angler, Shelia Zitzelberger was out to the lake on Sunday 9/17 with resident and life long Camanche angler Beau Countoul. Shelia told me that she they hit too many bass to count and had 5 – 5 lb and over. I didn’t get much more info than that but from the pictures it looks like they were fishing up the river.

Left: Sunday 9/10 Carrie and Harper Stephens from Salinas were out with their Dad and brought in these big ol bass weighing in a 3, 4, & 6 lbs. They reported using senko and fishing the main body of the lake.
