    New Years 2015... Dink reports all over no stocking info. Completely different from last few years. Something is wrong and I tell irvine lake management publicly that business will suffer. http://fishingnetwork.net/forum4/sho...401#post753401

    June 29, 2015. Irvine Lake Lied directly to my and buddies about stockings!!! http://fishingnetwork.net/forum4/sho...382#post766382

    July 2015.... Reposted what I've been saying due to private boat use and lawsuit. http://fishingnetwork.net/forum4/sho...427#post767427

    And another http://fishingnetwork.net/forum4/sho...507#post767507

    And that Catfishing 101 on TV and YouTube with Sergio and Angler Chronicles. What a piece of marketing crap that was. Only thing anyone learned from that 101 program was how to cook catfish after you caught it and that Irvine lake was the place to catch them. A few minutes was actually spent on the 101 points of fishing for catfish!!! You don't do one of those unless you are desperate in business.

    I had fun going back and reading your posts. You were very right, you smelled something wasn't right about the place. I also had fun reading about the talk of upgrading their boats after they lost their lease. Yea right!!!! They weren't going to upgrade their boats with 6 months to go on their lease. It also makes me wonder, "was everybody in on it????" If that was the case, I won't mention any names but some peoples creditability is right in the toilet if you ask me!!!!

    I do want to end on a positive note. The old concessionaire did reseed the Monster Blue Catfish population. By my calculations even if no one stocks anymore Blue Catfish, you still have another 20 years at a realistic chance of catching a Monster Blue catfish.

    So when do the self proclaimed Steelhead get stocked? Isn't it about this time of year that they run up from Santiago Canyon?

    You know what, I forgot I had one of those. Wonder if they will still redeem those points, might be worth swinging by for a free burrito or burger (Fisherman's combo). I think I have 140 something points.
    That really was interesting reading back, I forgot about the boat upgrades they talked about. Really classy knowing they were out the door in 6 months.
    I knew right out the gate at the last opener something was off, I figured it was just the hot weather killing the bite, but it never got good for me the whole season, which is unusual because the troll is more often than not on fire between december and april. That was definitely not the case last season.
    LOL@ the "Steelhead" run. I always thought it was funny they call them steelies, what does the hatchery let them out for an ocean run for a few months before they come back? Because genetically there's no difference between the Mykiss rainbows and a steelhead. One is landlocked while the other hits the saltwater before returning upstream to breed.

    You mean to tell me I was swinging my spey rod all day long and all I was catching is stocked rainbow trout!?

    Gee I wonder why ? For years SoCal was the place to be, now over the last 30 years or so something has changed, what could it be ?

    The carry capacity of the land has been exceeded!!!! The fairest solution should be, "the people that are the most unhappy" should leave first!!!!
