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 trout fishing has been quite solid. The rains didnít hamper the bite much. Big fish of the week belonged to Uciel Alatorre- Cuevas of Escondido who caught a 7.40# trout on powerbait in Boat Dock Cove. Other notable catches included Vu Phamís 7.20#, Denver Hussís 6.70#, Thanh Vinhís 6.40# and Tono Ramirezís 5.60# trout.
The bass bite is showing signs of becoming a little more active. Largemouth bass can be found lurking around structure. They hit swimbaits, frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics.
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.
