I fished it many years ago. There are some very large carp in very thin water.

Myself and KenDavis did an aquatic survey there in the springtime probably 10 or so years ago, and was granted permission by the dfg to fly fish it as well ( wasnt fishing season yet). There were a few fish that come up there to spawn during the winter but the water warms quickly and they don't stick around. What really impressed myself and Ken was the crazy amount of aquatic bug life. Mayfly and caddis species that don't exist below Monticello dam. In fact the variety of species was way more impressive than the areas we all currently fish ( between the dams). Pretty cool!

The description sounds a bit like Putah above Winters before the dam and lake.

I lived in the pope valley area till recently, and I fished upper putah off of snell valley road (a right turn off of butts canyon rd heading towards Middletown) a number of times. I only caught small size smallmouths but the area is a trip to explore, lots of snakes as you'd expect. Believe it's public land, but have been told conflicting things from the residents at that particular spot. Only other thing I have to add is that upper putah in hidden valley (parallel to Hartman Rd), had some very large fish stuck in a pool last April. I was working on a construction job there, and would watch them after work, but couldn't figure out species. They were sort of silver colored, but water was way too warm for steelhead, so maybe squawfish or carp. Again, I'm not sure about access as plenty of people swim under the bridge in the summer, but there are no trespassing signs along Hartmann rd.
Can't imagine anybody getting hung up about me talking about these spots, as they receive little to no pressure for good reason.
