Castaic Lake Fishing Report

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA

by Castaic Lake Staff

It has been some tough fishing out on Castaic this past week. Most fish caught have been deeper and off finesse style baits. The largemouth and smallmouth have been difficult to locate, but anglers able to find schools of them are able to hook into a few fish. Some deep diving jerk baits and weighted swimbaits have also been working. Striper fishing has been tough as well with most fish coming off the troll or down deep on cut bait. Main lake points and deeper drop offs have been the areas to target. The trout bite has been decent even with the last plant being over two weeks ago. There is still a good amount of holdovers and there has been some good sized rainbows caught. Most action has been on bright colored Power-baits and smaller trout lures. We are also expecting another trout stocking this week. Fish and game has officially put Castaic up on the fish plant schedule. Catfish have been hard to locate with the colder temperatures. Bluegill and crappie still are biting but are getting a lot harder to find. The lower lagoon has been the place for those species.

Shad imitation lures have also been working such as flukes and some other reaction baits. The drop shot has also been rewarding...... Read More
