When they drew the lake down they got rid of the Pike. Another good Pike fishery gone. Bummer. The lake does support some fat trout! Good Luck...Let us know how you do.

Thanks lucky7 wish the pike were still there that was one of the only lakes I have been able to ,wait the only lake I have been able to catch big pike out of. Caught a ten pounder bout 26-28 inches a couple years back . I went there for pike was fishing with tubes and sucker meat the huge trout I was seeing was scared of them so I tried a 1/8 kastmaster with power bait caught the biggest pike of my life (so far) but thanks for the report there is some big rainbows down there probably 5-6 pounders if the lake didn't totally dry up.

I heard that the Pike are not doing well at Sanchez due to the alkaline level of the lake and not enough perch to fatten the Pike.

I'm from San Luis and my parents still live there, it is true that the lake sufferd from the drout. But they have not drained that lake in 48 yrs. The story of the winter kill is not true. In fact I fished it a lot last year. the Sanchez is a great place to fish for walleye and pike. Last year I had good luck on walleye and a lot of small pike. one day a guy from new mexico nailed a 36 incher. i know they are in there.

My Mother-in-law grew up in San Pablo. You can see the Sanchez Dam from her old house. This is good news as I love that Lake! I plan to hit it with the boat this summer!

I would not get to excite about Sanchez, I fished it last summer and the walleye are very under feed (skinny), that same size eyes 2 years earlier were pushing 3.5-4 lbs, were only 1.5-2 lbs. I spoke to the DOw officier for the area and they are tryihg to recover the perch population but it will take time. It was a great lake and will be agian, but it needs some food for the eyes and pike....
