Anglers reported bass, trout and crappie this week.

We had a few celebrities visit the lake last Friday 7/21.  Vance McDonald, #89 / Tight end of 49ers with pro anglers Matt Frazier, Aaron Britt, @oliverngy and Westin Yancy hitting the lake for bass and doing a little filming.

Matt posted this picture on Instagram and said, “Had a blast with the @undercoversportsman crew at @lakecamanche ! When you put @legitbritt00 , @oliverngy , and @westinyancey all together to break down a lake, things happen fast! It was very cool fishing with the man @vancemcdonald89, good luck this season! Go Niners!!! Did I mention I’m 240lbs and I look like a runt next to this guy! @modesto_toyota @biwaa_usa @stcroixrods @nfabinc @sotaoffroad @visionxusa @rah_fish @mercurymarine @bassproshops @motionmediawraps  #49ers#bassproshop #topwaterfishing #largemouthbass #spottedbass #funinthesun

I found this shot of Ira Ellison, aka MisterEMachine on an app called Fishbrain Fishing 7/15. “Caught this on drop shot” spotted bass, catch & release, bottom fishing.

Greg Galli and friend spent a couple days at the lake and ended up with 20 trout and 6 crappie. Job well done!

Instagramer @sweatshopbaits posted these beasts and commented, “Had an awesome day on @lakecamanche as you can see, they are chewing. @tacklewarehouse @powell_rods @mercurymarine @calcoastfishing”
