Folsom is a big hole that just filled up with melted snow.

Is there any fish in Folsom? Its been a few since I was up there. I figured with all the drought there isn't anything worth it.

I've caught some large mouth up past rattle snake bar during the spawn. It was a few years ago so I can't remember what tackle. I think it was just dragging a jig through beds. But it was slow fishing.

I would go to another body of water if it were my time.

Well i guess it is helpful if you were planning to go back anytime in the next year or so.
Do you understand the pyramid like structure of a fishery?
Baitfish, fry, plankton, insect life, places to hide/ cover stuff like that?
Folsom ain't got none, thanks for the report.

Where are you getting Golden Trout? Unless you're way up in elevation near Kern I think you might be mistaken on your Golden ID...

I think the free fishing days are the Saturdays of 4th of July and Labor Day weekends. I wasn't aware of area specific free days?

It's all about "going fishing" catching fish is a bonus.

Folsom was my home lake. Your going to have to use your graph. Folsom gets beat from the bank unless it's spawn your going to want to fish deep 20- 40 feet. Look for the river channel's. Drag a smallie beaver in shad color or a jig with a twin tail grub in water melon color with red flake.
If you have any questions pm me.

if you don't read the bee, the fishing article comes out on Tuesdays.

just make sure to check the date, sometimes it doesn't get posted - Folsom is covered and holds plenty of fish.

Ok thanks for the tip. Any particular spots you recommend? My buddy has been taking me out on the river near the airport for Striped Bass, I enjoy fishing there as well.
