Trout Fishing Remains Decent

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA

by Castaic Lake Staff

The trout fishing has remained decent with a lot of limits to report on. Most catches have been off Powerbait or garlic scented nightcrawler. A spoon or fly on the troll has been producing as well.

The stripers are starting to boil more frequently but still have been more active in the later afternoon. Most fish are chasing shad, and anglers matching the hatch have been having the best of luck.

Largemouth and smallmouth fishing has been steady with good numbers being reported back. Most have been caught on the food old drop-sot with a shad colored plastic. They have also been boils throughout the day and a few anglers are managing a few on the top water and reaction baits.

The bluegill and crappie are still biting good for most. Wax worms and meal worms have been doing the trick. Catfish are still being caught using garlic scented nightcrawlers and mackerel.
