Lake Amador
Elevation: 485 feet
Surface Acres: 425

Lake Amador Resort is located in the foothills of the Sierras and is only one hour from Sacramento or Stockton and two hours from the entire Bay area.

Weekly trout plants of up to 5000 pounds, averaging 2-6+lbs each provide not only fabulous fishing, but also the best catching ratio in the country. Besides trout, Lake Amador held the Largemouth Bass record for Northern California for over 10 years at 17.1 lbs. which still stands as the individual lake record was set by Tim Kamura, of Sacramento. The bass fishing is simply superb!

The lake was first planted in 1969 and was one of the first Northern California lakes to get Florida-strain largemouth.

Other trophy fish are also abundant. Huge Catfish up to 40 pounds are caught all summer long. Slab side Crappie and 2 pound Bluegill round out the bountiful fish population that is waiting to provide you with hours of exciting fishing entertainment. You will also find a well-stocked bait & tackle store along with a full line of rental boats located in the lodge.

Lake Amador now has an expanded launch ramp with new docks and a paved parking area. The parking area is now lighted at night for those nocturnal fishing adventures. No Jet Skiís or Water Skiing allowed.
