Lake Skinner - Temecula, CA (Riverside County)

by Lake Skinner Marina Staff
(951) 926-8515

First Trout stock will be this Wednesday, the 6th. Blue Gill: low action. Still a decent and fun fish to target. Skinner is known for large panfish. Try minijigs and mealworms!

Catfish: Medium action. Chicken liver is almost always the best bet for catfish although worms and anchovies can also be a good option. Fish are usually near the inlet or Ramp 2.

Striper: HIGH ACTION. Several teener stripers caught this weekend. All on artificial lures such as Jerkbaits and A Rigs. Try trolling the main lake as a productive and efficient way to cover water. Always keep an eye out for boils.

Large Mouth: Medium Action. Bass have also been caught while blowing up on bait this week. Try walking baits in the early morning or closer to dusk. Jerkbaits have also been very effective this week.

Trout: First plant is coming this week.

Carp: Low action, big carp ready to catch, easy and fun. Use your favorite carp dough balls, along the banks or under heavy cover.
