For over 30 years, the Lockhart Family, of four generations, has been in the process of developing the finest fishing resort in the Western United States. Lake Amador Resort, located in the foothills of the Sierras, is only one hour from Sacramento or Stockton and two hours from anywhere in the Bay Area.
Years ago, we realized that Mother Nature, alone, could not provide the quality of fishing that our anglers deserved. So, we set out to raise the best eating, hardest fighting, and biggest trout found anywhere in the country. We imported a special strain of crossbred trout from Switzerland, the Donaldson Trout. They are part Steelhead, part Cutthroat, and part Rainbow. Anglers from all over the world now rave about the spectacular jumps and awesome fight that these unique fish exhibit.
Seasonal 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., our bass fishing is simply superb!! Since there is NO WATERSKIING OR JET SKIS ALLOWED, the peaceful adventure on the 400-acre, 13 1/2 miles of beautiful Lake Amador shoreline will keep anglers returning again and again!
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 waiting to provide hours of exciting fishing adventure.
Complete launching/docking facilities are available on the shoreline for your convenience. Full hook-up RV sites and a 150 site campground, with showers and flush toilets, are nestled along the shoreline of Lake Amador available year round with reservations or just show up, we always have room! (except maybe holidays!) Come and visit soon. Catch yourself an adventure so close to home you'll be hooked for life!
