Due to the Low water levels at Folsom, Rollins has become my go to lake for quick fishing trips. The lake still has plenty of water in it and there is no 5mph speed limit for the whole lake, the only issue is there are tons of pleasure boaters out so be prepared to wait at the ramp and deal with wakes.
I launch out of Long Ravine camp ground and start fishing at the main lake point right when the 5mph zone ends, from there I usually continue down the bear river arm. Fish all the little rock points down the river and any wood lay downs that you see. For some reason I have been having a hard time finding fish off the main lake points.
Most of the fish have been in about 12-15ft of water. My most productive bait has been a drop shot rigged with a zoom tiny fluke in the bait fish color or a morning dawn robo worm. A nail weighted senko has produced some better fish.
In the mornings and evenings you can give top water a try. I would recommend you stick with smaller baits. A small spook or popper will work best.
The reaction bite has been pretty slow but I have managed to get a few fish on a rip bait. I have been throwing a river to sea fetch minnow 8ft diving rip bait, I am unsure of the name of the color but it is silver with red stripes.
The drop shot is sure to get you some bites and since the lake is at a higher elevation it’s a great way to escape the heat.
