Due to the threat of Quagga mussels, there remains a ban on private water craft and equipment. Restricted equipment includes; private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.
Permits and Boat Rentals are now issued by a machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine can take cash (no $50 or $100 bills), debit, or credit. Please take note; we do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle, so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays and to active military every Saturday.
The first week of trout fishing has been outstanding with numerous limits being reported each day. Big fish of the week belonged to Aaron Austin of Escondido who caught a seven-pound rainbow using a green and orange mouse-tail in Boat Dock Cove Thursday. Other catches of note included; Jesus Mayo Jr.’s 6.70#, Richard Dexter’s 6.60#, Roy Duncan’s 6.20#, Jesse Tran’s 6.20#, Dave Kiyan’s 6.10#, and Herb Cruz’s 4.80#. Trout are being caught all throughout the lake but Boat Dock Cove has been the hottest spot. A variety of bait and lures have been successful, but none more productive than mouse-tails or power-bait, green appears to be the color of choice.
Largemouth bass can be found lurking around structure. Michael Miranda of Valley Center caught and released a seven pound largemouth he caught in Boat Dock Cove on a swimbait.
Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
