Castaic Lake Fishing Report

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Castaic Lake Staff

There still have been striper boils going off around the lake. Most of the bigger boils have been in the afternoon, with more being seen lately first thing in the morning. It still has been hit and miss though, and you want to be in the right place at the right time. The past week has been a little weird with the fires and high winds, so it was generally pretty quiet during the week. There is a lot of shad around the lake and wherever there tends to be bait fish, the stripers and largemouth are close bye. The Largemouth have been boiling as well, mainly first thing in the morning and later in the evening. Shad imitation lures have been working best, with the good old drop shot producing good numbers as well. Any shad colored worms have been working, mainly Gary Yamato and Robo worms. Anyone netting shad has been having very productive days with high numbers of fish. The catfish are still biting too. The best baits have been mackerel, chicken liver, and garlic nightcrawlers. The trout are still being caught even though we haven’t had a trout plant in a while, mainly on bright colored Power-baits and garlic nightcrawlers. Bluegill and crappie still are biting, with red, wax, and meal worms working best.

The largemouth and smallmouth have also been boiling, mainly in the...... Read More
