Trout can be caught throughout the river from Clements to Lodi, but access can be difficult. Use nightcrawlers, Glo Bugs, Little Cleos and small spinners. Fly fishing is good for anglers using a variety of nymphs or dry flies when hatches take place. Most of the trout are wild, though some hatchery fish are caught also. Henderson • The major run of King Salmon usually moves into this stretch of river when it is closed to all fishing. The river from Camanche Dam to Peltier Road is open to 'Village fishing from January 1 through March 31 and from the fourth Saturday in May through October 15, with a limit of 1 hatchery trout or steelhead. Expect both salmon and steelhead runs to increase because of the modernized hatchery and habitat improvements on the river. • Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Catfish and Bluegill can be found in the Mokelumne in the Lodi area, particularly during the spring and summer months.
