    Report: since I'm a local to the area, I had to try guada or some bass, even though I usually ish Calero or Anderson. Water looked really good but the bite sucks. Fished with my buddy or 4 hours all around with only one ish on a crankbait.(only 1.5 lb) I ished jigs, worms, lizards, even tried the senko or about an hour. he ished cranks and spinnerbaits. I ished at Calero a ew days beore and caught 8 bass on a black and blue power worm(texas rig)rom 1.5 to 4.3lbs.. But guada ailed to produce. I am staying at Calero or Anderson where you can actually catch bass. Besides this lake is damm hard to walk around(steep,muddy,loose rock everywhere)

    Report: Fished rom 4pm 'til dusk on Sunday; caught a hal-dozen or so, the largest going 2.6 lbs. on the Berkley scale. Caught that one on a split-shotted, 6" Roboworm (green weenie). Caught a couple more on topwater just as the sun was going down, another on a 5" Senko. Fished rom my Outcast kickboat, catching more ish on the ar banks, with only a couple o dinks picked up on the road-side o the lake.

    Tips: It's real clear water, so use natural-looking, subtly-colored lures. Once again, be careul on those steep banks!

    Report: Got my rat in about 9 this morning. LOTS o small bluegill and bass all over the place. Landed two ish. One just over two lbs, and the second just under. Lost three others, one o which was small. Don't know how big the other two were. Could not get anything to bite on shoreline cover. All ish were on submerged trees or brush out in the middle, at least 50t rom shore. Bites came on 4" appleseed and a 7" purple powerworm. Color did not seem to make as much o a dierence as location. Can't believe I couldn't catch any in that beautiul shoreline cover. As I went across the lake near the dam, noted that it gets over 95' deep. Marked some schools o ish in the 45 to 80 oot range. Looks like there may be a ew trout in there, but not a lot. As others have mentioned, I had a heck o a time getting my rat, battery, etc. down to the water. Not sure it was worth all the work. Next time I'll have to take a loat tube.

    Water Temp: Hi 60's

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Fished the 'Guad' on Sunday, working my kickboat cautiously down the steep banks to the waterline. Got going around 6 a.m., & was helped by a light og that hung around or a couple o hours to prolong the morning bite. Fished primarily across the lake, in shady areas, with most o my success coming around allen timber, submerged brush and the back ends o the coves. Caught a couple o dinks on my Lucky Crat jerkbait; then I switched to a split-shot Roboworm. Lo & behold, when I started winding one cast back in, just outside a submerged tree, I got a powerul hit - by a big ol' RAINBOW! The ish was around 18"; I igure it was around 2-1/2 lbs. or so - a real beauty! How did this sucker get in the lake? I surely don't know. I've never heard o this particular lake being stocked with trout; nor do I believe it could've climbed the spillway on its own, but who knows? Maybe someone planted this ish illegally? When I irst let it go, it went up on its side. My irst attempt at resuscitation resulted in it idling away, then returning to the surace. On my second attempt, however, I rocked it & rocked it, then pushed it away, and or an extra incentive, I kicked out with my ins to startle it a bit, at which point it headed (healthily?) to the depths, apparently to ight again another day! Ater this catch, I started tossing an unweighted Yamamoto Senko, which yielded several nice ish over a pound & a hal, topped by a nice **3.7 lb'er**, which had snuggled under some loating debris at the tail end o a small inlet. Caught another one or two on a T-rigged, craw-pattern reaper. Otherwise, a couple o taps on the Senko, but no other takers. All in all, a pretty decent morning - it sure is nice having a lake all to yoursel, on a **weekend**, no less! Oh, yeah: I saw lots o small bass ry, already in the 2-to-4-inch range -- good promise or a healthy, sel-sustaining ishery! Let's keep this little gem a secret!
    City: San Jose

    Tips: Be careul on those steep banks. I'm really beginning to love that Senko!

    Report: Bonneau, I have also had good luck on senkos- black & red, and green & black colors. The darker color crank baits are great aroud the steep bank on the road side. This place is great when the water is low. You can see all of the structure this place has. There is are good size cove on the other side that has a huge tree that comes out only when the water is low-(obviously).
    The california rig is great too, try 6" robo worms with about a 18 inch tag line.

    Report: I don't mean to make this a chat room, but I am planning on tubing Guadalupe again this weekend, and I am hoping some old timers out there have some tips. Is the bank furthest from the road better than the steep bank closest to the road? I have heard that brown crank baits really nail them here, but I am primarily a plastic lure fisherman. Mick, thanks for the tip. I'll be there late summer. Look for two fools in Outcast tubes.
    Thanks in advance!

    Report: Just wait until later in the summer for the crank bait bite. Go along those steep banks in your float tube and you will catch bass all day.
