Due to the threat of Quagga mussels, there is 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.

Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Drop by the ranger station to pick up a dough-bait recipe that works well for both catfish and carp.
Largemouth Bass can be found working the reed beds, or lurking around structure. Justin Kennedy of Valley Center caught & released a 9.70# bass Sunday using a crank-bait off the South Shore Rock Pile. Bass respond well to crawdads, frogs, and dark colored plastics.
Crappie prefer the cover of shade and bite best before the sun comes up. They are most often caught on finger jigs or live golden shiners.
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.
