Despite the colder weather, anglers are still coming across a variety of species around the lake. People have been using sardines and lugworms from shore to catch stripers along the rip rap and off the points past the swim beach. Trolling has also been working well throughout the lake to come across stripers off points or around Chumash Island. Lots of Catfish have been caught this past week on various cut baits like sardines, anchovies or chicken liver, mostly down deep within the coves of the lake but also some luck in the front canal from shore as well. Trout are still biting in the marina and along the rip rap in front of the boat shop mostly on micetails or nightcrawlers and garlic powerbaits during the colder conditions. The Largemouth and Smallmouth are being caught up to 20ft on various soft plastics, crankbaits and jerkbaits in the morning.

Lake hours are still from 7am-5pm.
