Lake Solano Float
Lake Solano is a small lake that is formed by the Putah Creek diversion dam. I have heard mixed rumors that many of Putah's giant trout live in Lake Solano during the year when they aren't spawning. There are very few fishing reports written about Lake Solano so in order to see if what I've heard was true I decided to float it from access five to the bridge.
Long story short, stick to fishing the creek. I saw a few big pike minnows and suckerfish but other than that not a single trout to be found. I'm sure when they use to stock Lake Solano the fishing was phenomenal however it's been almost ten years since the last plant. If there are trout in Lake Solano then they are super elusive and difficult to catch. It was a fun short float though.
