The fishing is still OFF the HOOK!  According to the weather forecast highs will be in upper 80’s this weekend. The surface temp of the water is still about 75 degrees. The largemouth bass and Catfish are still biting. Those fishing from kayaks, float tubes, and canoes are having the best luck targeting the north shore and the backside of the peninsula.

The Largemouth Bass bite is still on. Anglers are targeting main lake points and the north shore. Shoreline anglers have been fishing to the left of the boat dock, and hiking farther down the shore to get into deeper water.  Most are throwing spinner baits, plastics, and nightcrawlers. Anglers are also spotting shad in the mornings, so don’t forget your crank baits and top water lures!

The Crappie bite has picked up. Anglers fishing off of kayaks, canoes, and float tubes are having the best luck. Anglers are trying their luck near the dam and north shore. Most are using nightcrawlers, red worms, meal worms, and small crappie jigs. You will have the best luck off boat or non-motorized vessel.

The Catfish bite continues to be consistent!  Most anglers are using mackerel, nightcrawlers, and chicken livers. Anglers have had the best luck on the back side of the peninsula and to the left of the launch ramp!

We have nightcrawlers and mackerel available for purchase!!!

Remember, we are no longer catch and release only and all anglers 16 years and older are required to have  a California state fishing license. All department of Fish and Wildlife regulations apply.
