Lake Camanche, located in Ione, Ca, is a great lake for fishing, both from a boat, and from
shore. It is best known for excellent bass fishing, as well as for great trout fishing. They
regularly plant about 60,000 trout each year between October and June. The average size
of the planted trout range from one pound to trophy trout over eight pounds. The large
trout pond at South Shore is a great place to take your children fishing.
Lake Camanche also has a highly unique Florida-strain largemouth bass plant each year.
There are several other fish species found in Lake Camanche, including rainbow trout, a
fancy trending trophy lightning trout, large and small mouth bass, spotted bass, catfish,
kokanee, crappie, bluegill and sunfish. Shoreline access is available to anglers at both
shores. There is also shoreline access upriver, however it is only available by boat. The
2020 price for fishing at Lake Camanche is $6.25 per angler, per day.
One of the preferred fishing techniques used at the Camanche Lake Trout Pond is jigging
for trout using trout mini jigs. The Camanche Lake Trout Pond is regularly stocked with
fish during the cold part of the year when trout thrive. You can see the trout and lightning
trout swimming out in the large pond. This is a great place to take the family camping
and fishing with a good opportunity for catching your limits of fish.
