No swimming/skiing is allowed which makes this a nice lake to fish. Night fishing is allowed during the summer months. There is a fish cleaning facility located near the concessions stand.

Comments and Tips:
Like many of the smaller trout-stocked lakes in San Diego county, Dixon has a reputation of producing some record-sized largemouth bass. Several 15+ bucketmouths have been posted here. Using soft-plastic trout imitation lures is a good method to entice one of these hogs into biting.
