    Default Santa Ana River lake

    Hello, it's been about three years since I've fished and was planning on going either this weekend or next weekend. I was just curious if anyone had been there lately and if so were the fish biting. Thank you for any info

    It might rain next week, when it does that lake turns into Chocolate Milk. So check the weather, it could make a huge difference.

    SAR stocks on Thursday, so Saturday would probably be better than Sunday. Here's a sonar map of the lake to give you ideas about where to go. The ridge on the eastern side of the lake is a good spot. PowerBait mice tails are a very popular and productive bait there. Good luck!

    I was just there for the 24 hour fishing. It's a 15 fish limit. I caught 14, but nothing spectacular in terms if size. I was using garlic dipped mice tails with white head and orange tail on one pole, and drop shotting an orange trout worm on the other. Key is very light line, i recommend 2lb flouro. Or 4lb if not brave enough. They seem to be loving the orange. If you can get a spot by the bubble hole, it would be ideal, but it's usually taken up. If not, close to the boat docks can be a good spot for big trout. My buddy was not using garlic dip at first and was not getting bit. He switched and started catching. Oh yeah, I did catch one on a gold wobble spoon. Hope this helps.
