THE PEAKS OF THE WEEK OF JIM MATTHEWS
1. Once again, the entire California Aqueduct remains the best choice. The action of the catfish that has been good to excellent both in the Antelope Valley and in the south of the San Joaquin Valley extends. The best bite has been in lug or blood worms that are fished alone or mixed with chicken liver or other cut bait and move along the bottom, especially in areas where the flow is restricted, interrupted or bends. Adding an aroma also increases the number of bites. Cats at 10 pounds in both sections. For updates on this bite, call Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824 for the Palmdale stretch to Hesperia and Bob’s Bait Bucket at 661-833-8657 for the Taft region.
2. This is a bite too good not to stay in the selections. The fishing of blue carp and carp from Lake Apollo Park Lake is continuous and excellent for children. Blue gills are better when a worm is caught under a bobber, especially in the mornings and afternoons, while carp has been better in dough baits with fish that weigh two pounds on average. For more information, contact Apollo Park at 661-940-7701 or Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
3. It is still working. The bite of the fly fishing hopper in Hot Creek and the Upper Owens River over Lake Crowley has to remain in the best bites due to the exceptional action. There are three or four pound fish (brown, rainbow and killer trout) on top of Owens and Hot Creek, but smaller fish in the other Crowley tribes. For an update on this bite, check with The Trout Fly (www.thetroutfly.com) at Mammoth Lakes or contact the Fred Rowe guide at www.sierrabrightdot.com for a guided tour.
LAKE ISABELLA: The lake level is still high, the level is now 50 percent full, compared to 52 percent last week. Catfish bite has been good in immersion baits, shad and clams, especially in the Camp 9 area at night or early and at the end of the day. One type of fish rew continues to show, but only good fishermen are pulling them out of the boats are fishing tubes
rows of submerged trees in the North Fork area with small small fish. There is a good bite of largemouth crankbaits in crawdad colors in less than 15 feet of water, and early mornings are the best. Some fish in templates or plastics in deeper water structures. Few reports of trout or carp, but blue gill bites have been good in most coves with mostly small fish now. Information: Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657 or www.bobsbaitbucket.com, North Fork Marina at 760-376-1812, or Cope’s Tackle and Rod Shop at 661-679-6351 or www.tackleandrod.com.
KERN RIVER: The flows at the top of the river have been reduced to just over 800 cfs this week, and there is a good to good trout bite. Trout was scheduled to be planted in sections 2 through 5 this week. They were also planted in sections 4 and 6 of the upper river last week. The bite has been good to good in crickets, salmon eggs and small spinners. It also improved the action of flying at the top of the river and over the Johnsondale Bridge. The lower river flows increased slightly to 1,800 this week, 100 cfs less than in the same period last week. This is a more catchy level, and there have been some reports of sea bass and catfish in the larger pools. Information: Kern River Fly Shop 760-376-2040 or (www.kernriverflyfishing.com) or Gateway Market 760-376-2424.
AQUEDUCT NEAR TAFT: There have been many small traces of 15 to 17 inches trapped, but very few over the minimum archer size of 18 inches. The best bite has been in blood and sand worms, with some fish in Flukes. Moss making fishing a little harder. There is a very good catfish sting in cut baits and immersion baits, especially in the area of Highway 166. Fishermen are reminded that the limit of the plotters is two fish over 18 inches, while the limit of Largemouth is five fish. Information: Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657 or www.bobsbaitbucket.com or Cope’s Tackle and Rod Shop at 661-679-6351 or www.tackleandrod.com.
MILL CREEK PARK AND CHANNEL: Carp and bluegill bites are pretty good. Carp is better with Wussy Bait and Powder Bait, while bluegill is shown in crickets and wax worms. Some lows are still shown, mainly early and late. In fact, all bites are better early and late.
RIVER WALK PARK LAKE: Carp and bluegill bites continue quite well most mornings and afternoons, and some basses are caught early in the morning. Carp bite is better in dough baits, especially Wussy Bait and Powder Bait. The bass has been better in Senko-type plastics and baits, and blue gill is hammering wax worms or red worms. Information Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657.
HART PARK LAKE: Bluegill tents and bites are good. The basses are still fair and are shown in plastics, insoles and reaction baits early and late in the day. Blue gills are better in wax and flour worms or red worms. Tents are better in powdered bait, Wussy bait or other dough baits. Some smaller catfish are being reported in cut baits or pasta baits.
TRUXTUN LAKE: Carp and bluegill bites are good, especially at night, but also early and late in the day. The bass is still fair with a few in plastics or swimsuits early in the morning. The tents are the best in Wussy bait, powder bait or a variety of homemade dough baits. Blue gills are shown in fair numbers in wax worms, red worms, crickets and flour worms.
MING LAKE: Very good carp action continued on Powder Bait and other dough baits, especially Wussy and Power baits. Blue gills are good to good, especially at the beginning and end of the day with food, wax or red worms. The bass is fair on the surface of the water early and then in small live fish and reaction baits.
BRITE LAKE: It still shows good to good amount of trout in floating-mass baits or MiceTails with fish at three pounds reported last week, including some limits. Blue gills are quite good in small baits. Some lows are shown in templates with flour worms or wax worms, but the low ones are small. Afternoons and mornings have been the best. The bass is small, but some are shown in small jerkbaits, plastics or half night tracker.
GOOD VIEW LAKES: Catfish and bluegill bites are still good to good. Catfish are better in cut baits with added aromas, but the Triple S bait has been the hot ticket. For blue gills, wax worms, flour worms, red worms or nighttime crawler pieces are good bets, some of them in small templates, especially if they are covered with bait. Carp action is also good with fish up to eight pounds, but the fishing pressure on the carp is relatively mild. The best bite has been bait powder or other dough baits. Some morning bigmouth action, and still the occasional display of garbage. Fishing information: Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657 or www.bobsbaitbucket.com or Cope’s Tackle and Rod Shop at 661-679-6351 or www.tackleandrod.com.
WOOLLOMES LAKE: There are no reports.
LAKE OF SUCCESS: the drop in water levels has dispersed the fish or moved the sea bass to suspend it. The action of the bass is still fair in the reaction baits, with a good level of water in the frogs and in the first water plugs. Few reports of garbage, but the action of blue gills is good in crickets, wax worms or flour worms, but finding fish has been the challenge. Catfish is right in cut baits. The lake level continues to plummet, falling from 82 percent two weeks ago, to 59 percent this week. A little over a month ago, the lake was spilling. Information: Sequoia Fishing Company at 559-539-5626, www.sequoiafishingcompany.com or Cope’s Tackle and Rod Shop at 661-679-6351 or www.tackleandrod.com.
LAKE OF KAWEAH: Lake levels continue to drop with the lake at 33 percent this week, below the full 54 percent two weeks ago. Water fall levels have hit the bites, but there is a good bite of low surface biat, reaction baits and small swimsuits early in the morning or near the surface. Some blue gills and catfish are also shown, but a much harder fishing. Information: Sierra Sporting Goods at 559-592-5212.
HIGH DESERT WATERS
LAKE OF HESPERIA: Catfish stocks are weekly on Thursdays with most catfish from 1-8 to 2-8, but some more are planted every week. The bite has been good to good, and the biggest fish reported last week was Deanna Davis, Ontario, who caught 12 pounds in an improved mackerel with Mike's Red Garlic Sauce at Sandy Point. Chaysen Hughes, Palmdale, caught an eight-pound cat in night trackers, also near Sandy Point. Lake information: 800-521-6332 or 760-244-5951.
JESS RANCH LAKES: While the trout's bite is still very slow, there are still some basses that are shown in Senkos or Nightcrawlers on the north and east shores of Lake 2 with fish up to four pounds. Bluegill is being captured in fairly decent quantities early and at the end of the day in food worms and jigs on the western shore of Lake 2 and the western shore near the pump house. The few reported trouts have been in the two-pound range and have been caught in PowerBait, Nightcrawlers, Mice Tails or small insoles, especially on the north shore of Lake Two and the grassy point and the eastern shore of Lake 3. To Para more information call (760)240-1107 or visit www.jessranchlakesnews.com.
MOJAVE NARROWS: The weekly plants with most fish are in the range of two to three pounds. There are no other reports. Information, call 760-245-2226.
HIGH DESERT WATERS
ANTYLOPE VALLEY REGION
PARK LAKE APOLLO: The blue gill and the warm mouth are small, but the bite is still good to excellent, and the bite is almost any small bait under a bobber. It is a great place to take children to constant action. There is also a good carp bite in a wide variety of dough and pasta baits with the majority of two to four pounds, but some larger. Also more and more catfish showing with five-pound fish (and the duck feeding area on the front lake has been a hot spot). For more information or updates about the plant, contact Apollo Park at 661-940-7701 or Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
JACKSON LAKE (NEAR WRIGHTWOOD): Trout bites have died almost completely since the last plant several weeks ago, and there is no DFW plant in the immediate future. However, there is still a very good bite in the small blue gill in any small bait suspended under a fish bobber near the weeds. Keep the hook size 14 or smaller. For updated information, call Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
LAKE PALMDALE: There is still a good bite for a variety of fish. Largemouth bass has been good at night trackers thrown into holes in weed beds, but you must catch a heavy line to get them out of weeds. Fish at five pounds reported. The catfish bite at night has been good to excellent for fishermen who catch fly-cut baits with many from one to three pounds, but also some remains and 10-pound wild fish. The best action has been on the sardine or beef liver soaked with the Triple X Blood Bait scent with a nighttime crawler added for shaking. Suspend a bait under a bobber so that it sits on weeds or the lining of the fly gets the same result. Hot spots have been some of the open holes in weeds near the dam or other areas where weeds are not so dense. The bite, the blue itch and the cane bites have diminished, but that is a problem of grass. The tents are excellent at the rear of the lake with a lot of more than 10 pounds. The best bite has been in dough baits. There is a $ 100 reward for the fisherman who catches and weighs the most carp each month. Call Palmdale Fin & Feather Club for membership and fishing information at 661-947-2884 or visit the website at www.palmdalefinandfeatherclub.com.
LAKE QUAIL: There is still boiling marijuana early in the morning last week with the fish chasing the tarpon. Most weigh between three and seven pounds and are shown on Pencil Popper or Whopper Plopper baits on the surface. Some also in idiot baits. Gray and bone are the best. The big mouth is also good with some surface water, spinnerbait and small cranks around the tulles. Most fish weigh between one and three pounds, with some up to five. The catfish bite is also still quite good for fishermen who are drifting in the frozen shad under a set of non-slip bobber, so the bait runs from six to 15 feet, or large pieces of weightless mackerel lined in the exit. Night and early and late in the day have been the best times to catch cats. The bite of blue gills is still fairly fair along the coasts of the southern coast in red worms, wax worms, food worms, crickets and night fishing trackers under a bobber. For updated information, call Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
CALIFORNIA AQUEDUCT (section Hesperia to Quail Lake): the catfish action is still quite open and has been for several weeks. The action is good throughout the aqueduct from Quail Lake to Silverwood. The hot bait has been chicken liver soaked with Triple X blood bait and then improved with a night tracker or a blood worm or lug. But other cut baits are also getting fish. Almost none of the fish weighs less than five pounds now. The striped bass is also being caught in fair to good numbers. The best bite is before 8 a.m. or after 8 p.m., but the heat keeps most fishermen away during the day. The first places continue where flows change and decrease, especially crossroads, dams, siphons and where the canal is curved. For updated information, call Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
LAKE OF THE CENTRAL PARK (CITY OF CALIFORNIA): There is still a very good bite of bluegill and a bite of carp. Some catfish are also shown for fishermen who attack them. The bluegill are being trapped in the usual set of small baits with red worms, perhaps the best. Tents are better in dough baits. The catfish has been the best in cut baits, and an occasional bass has been reported in a crank or plastic.
LITTLE ROCK RESERVOIR: There were no reports this week, but recent reports were for a good black bass bite on the other side of the lake in the coves there. The best action was on dark plastics. No other species report. The lake is normally open to fishing without an appointment, but the Palmdale Water District has an ongoing sediment disposal project and access is sometimes restricted. For updated information, call Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
MOUNTAIN WATERS OF SAN BERNARDINO
SILVERWOOD: the flowering of algae that had closed the lake for swimming and fishing has risen, and the bite has been fair for both cheats and catfish. The catfish weigh up to eight pounds and have been the best 3 around the marina, off the docks, at Miller Canyon and at the dam with chicken liver and shrimp, the best baits. The stripes are best for trollers who catch umbrella platforms along the main points of the lake, with some smaller bait fish outside the pier and in coves around the lake in cut baits, mostly anchovies or sardines. Most weigh less than two pounds. A few bigmouths show early mornings in surface waters and spasmodic baits in most coves. Moe Huerta, Hesperia, got a four-pound bass on an idiot bait in Cleghorn. Few reports of the type of fish or blue gills this week, and trout bites have also slowed. Silverwood remains high at 93 percent full. Fishermen should be aware of the health warnings for the consumption of fish from this lake due to the high levels of PCBs and mercury in fish meat and skin. Here is the direct link to a PDF brochure that explains the consumption recommendations: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/fish/so_cal/pdf_zip/081013KioskadvySilverwood.pdf. Fishing on the pier is allowed for $ 3 for adults, $ 2 for children and seniors. Private vessels should be inspected by zebra and quagga mussels. Ships with wet bottom units will be rejected. Ships inspected and tagged in Diamond Valley and Perris will be allowed in Silverwood. The park is open seven days a week. Information: marina 760-389-2299, state park 760-389-2281, Silverwood Country store 760-389-2423.
BIG BEAR LAKE: the usual summer patterns are the best ways to get some trout. Here is the skinny Big Bear Sporting Goods: for fishermen on the coast, fishing from dawn (or before) until 10 or 11 (but before it is better). Or fish at sunset from 7 p.m. or later The best places are from Old Grays Landing west to Sandy Beach, near the Red House. The average plaster of the coast will put the bait in 14 to 22 feet of water, which is the depth that the trout are hanging. Sometimes they move even deeper at this time of year, so fishermen should try west of the buoy line on the north or south coasts. A non-slip bobber platform can be established at a depth where the fish are suspended. The depth from which a fisherman suspends his bait can be changed by sliding a bobber stop closer or further from the bobber slip. Some also use a cast mold filled with water to slowly sink and rest on the double beds at the bottom. The use of PowerBait and inflated night trackers helps keep the bait above the weeds. Trollers must work the central part of the lake from the line of the buoy to the Relief SS with three or four colors or more of the main line. Other good circuits are the Callejón de las Truchas (the Rock Wall to the Zebras Hall) and the West Launch Ramp towards the Old Gray Landing. A large variety of small spoons and gold Rapala lures with red or orange highlights are the best troll baits. The basses are fair on the cranks and on the surface of the early water, and some bread fish are shown on small templates with wax worms or food, or just those baits under a bobber. All public and private lake launch ramps are open. For information on fishing, call Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store's Facebook page.
GREGORY LAKE: There was a DFW trout plant three weeks ago and the bite has slowed to almost nothing. A few types of garbage reported. The VFW Auxiliary 9624 Trout Derby will be 7 a.m. at 3:30 p.m., Saturday, September 7. Admission is $ 20 per ticket. Large trout plant before the event For information on derby, call 909-553-8200 or 909-338-5385. Information on lakes and fishing at 909-338-2233 or on the website at lakegregoryrecreation.com/fish. Fishing updates are published infrequently on the park's Facebook page or website.
GREEN VALLEY LAKE: Jess Ranch trout plants go on most weeks. 400-pound plants always include 50 pounds of trophy fish. There was also a DFW plant three weeks ago. The bite is better early and late in the day, and the best baits are small trout jigs, mouse tails, trout spoons, garlic-inflated crawlers and PowerBait in yellow or chartreuse. Fish are congregating in the deepest waters of the dam. The website is www.gvlfishing.com and the Facebook page is Green Valley Lake Fishing.
INTERESTED 5 LAKES
CASTAICO: More and more boils every day in pejerreyes and tarpon. The key to the plotters is to match the lure to the size of the bait, which means smaller baits. The duration of the boils has been short, but there is good action during an early period and at the end of the day. After that, the rays are better in sandworms, lug worms, bloodworms and frozen shad, Triple X sardines or anchovies in deeper waters. The largemouth bass and the largemouth bass also continued to be fair to good. The bite is best in plastic worms, night crawlers, Senko-like baits or almost any reaction bait. Most weigh less than three pounds. Gary Paye, Valencia, had four sea bass at five pounds in Flukes and plastic worms. The action of the blue gill is good along most of the coastal structure in four to 20 feet of water in small baits, especially in the lower lake. Trout bites have slowed down, but some fish are showing up for curricaneros who work in riggers or lead tips and small spoons, but some also in PowerBaits and puffed garlic crawlers. There is almost no pressure on trout. The elevation of the lake is quite stable, with Castaic 91 percent full this week. For information, call the marina at 661-775-6232 (www.CastaicLake.com) or Tackle Express at 661-251-8700.
PYRAMID: Largemouth bass and smallmouth bites have been good in most coves in soft plastic worms or nighttime crawlers during the day, with fish boiling in bait balls in the morning. Flukes and Senkos (rigged without weeds) are the best in boiling fish. The majority are 1-8 to 3-0. The striped bass bite is still good in fish of one to four pounds with some to seven pounds. Most of the mornings there have been superficial boils in the coves and in Yellowbar, Bear Trap and Serranno. The action of the bait has been in sardines, anchovies and bloodworms or lug. A good amount of catfish is also shown in cut baits, especially bloodworms, lug and sand, but frozen sardines, anchovies and blankets are almost as good, especially when odor is added. The fish are deep in most of the coves, and the canal along the entrance cabin is still a hot spot along with the ramp. The bite of blue gills is still regular or good along the structure of the coast in mealworms, wax worms, red worms and crickets. Some trouts continue to be shown from deeper waters in inflated night trackers and PowerBait fished with long leaders. Algae bloom has increased in the last week, but no warming or closing has been issued. The lake level is not changing much. It was 93 percent full again this week. There is a health warning about eating fish from Pyramid Lake (except rainbow trout). More information on this link: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/fish/so_cal/pyramidlake2013.html.
