Lake Skinner Fishing Report

Lake Skinner - Temecula, CA (Riverside County)

(951) 926-8515

Striped Bass: Try using chicken liver or other cut baits near the dam and inlet. Always keep an eye out for boiling schools. Trolling can also be a very productive tactic.

Bluegill: We recommend bringing crickets and fly lining them in the east end. Another excellent bait is a whole mealworm or piece of nightcrawler. 

Catfish: Use chicken liver or other cut bait near the inlet if you have access or the same baits all over the Ramp 2 area. It is fairly easy to have a productive day fishing for cats. 

Largemouth Bass: Not much action on largemouth this past week. Try using good ole fashion night crawlers. A few anglers have had luck using cut baits. The bite is there but you must have patience. 

Trout: No Action

Carp: No action to be reported.
