Lake Skinner - Temecula, CA (Riverside County)

by Lake Skinner Marina Staff
(951) 926-8515

Striped Bass: Medium to high action this past week. Most anglers have been having more success over by the dam and inlet area using cut bait, such as chicken liver also anchovies. Some fish are being taken on top water lures as well. 

Bluegill: Medium Action reported. The most effective baits are worms, mealworms and crickets. Tip a jig or even drop shot, across from the Marina in the coves. 

Catfish: Another solid week of catfishing. Large numbers of quality fish being reported on just about all bait types throughout the lake. Launch ramp 2 and or by boat near the inlet using cut mackerel, chicken liver, anchovies, and garlic night crawlers. 

Largemouth Bass: slower action this past week. Real and artificial worms have been working best. There is quite a bit of baitfish in the water so another good tactic would be to use a small swimbait that closely matches the hatch. 

Trout: No Action

Carp: No action to be reported.
