Not that long ago the ever-popular Alisal Lake was low and getting lower, but today thanks to last season’s hearty rains, the lake is 90% of capacity. A full lake means happy fish and March is spawning time so the Largemouth Bass and Blue Gills are really biting. So far this season the record catch was a husky 5½ pound bass. Fish and guests aren’t the only ones happy about the water levels, the wildlife is also flocking to the cool waters making for some exciting viewing. Don’t be surprised if you see deer, coyote, wild turkeys and an occasional bald eagle.
This spring our lake guides are offering up Intro to Paddleboarding, where you get the board, the paddle and the basics to get you out on the water. The lessons can handle up to six people.
The big news (so we saved it for last), is the Ranch is bringing back a guest favorite – “An Angler’s Paradise” package. The package includes a two night stay (double occupancy) breakfast and dinner, golf privileges, and guided fishing for two for a 3-hour trip, complete with 21-foot bass boat and top-of-the-line pole and tackle. That kind of fancy fishin’ is bound to provide you with a couple good fish tales.
