    Default Fuller Lake is full, recently stocked and fishing well........

    Email report from CFFU:

    ____________________

    Hi All,
    I was in Reno working on Friday so I stopped in to fish a few hours on my way home. First of all the lake is filled to the top. Lots of clean, clear, cold water. There had been a trout plant on Thursday. The air was clean and a bit cooler than the valley. I spoke with 2 guys from the Tri Valley Fly club out of Pleasanton that were up to fish for the weekend. There were a few kayaks and 1 other float tube. I used small Black Woolly Buggers (size 12) and Sheeps Creek Specials, with 4"-6" strip and quick retrieve. I stopped counting at 20 but would guess and 25-28 fish in the net.

    I was on the water about 2:30 and off at about 7.

    Best day ever in a float tube.

    If you can go, now is the time!!!
    Good luck, Rich K (CFFU)

    I would get up to Fuller Lake ASAP.

    It might be very slow after the end of July.

    It is about 1.5 hours from Sacramento.

    A canoe, float tube, kayak, pontoon boat or small car top boat would be a big help.

    A weight forward clear slow sinking line is very popular on lakes besides a Weight forward floater.

    it is always a good day to be on the water. Yours was special.

    I have a pontoon boat and might go Monday or Tuesday. Is it difficult to get to the water?

    Thanks

    Hi John, it's a drive up lake. 2 put ins, one at each end of the lake. Very easy. Good luck.

    That's what I love about Fuller. There's always the opportunity to hook into one of these monsters.
