Lake Skinner Fishing Report

Lake Skinner - Temecula, CA (Riverside County)

by Lake Skinner Marina Staff
(951) 926-8515

Striped Bass: Water level is low.. but you can still find these beauties in the middle of the lake. Some private boaters have reported a decent hard bait bite in the channel that runs across the point near the marina down to the East End.

Bluegill: High action for Bluegill using mealworms or crickets. A mini jig tipped with some meat can be an extremely productive method.

Catfish: Catfish bite has slowed although there is some to be had. Catfish Alley and near Launch Ramp 2 would be your best bet, try using chicken liver, anchovies and garlic shrimp.

Largemouth: Largemouth bass bite has been pretty steady. The water level has dropped significantly so you will need to explore new territory.

Trout: Last trout stocking was December 4th & 14th. We do not currently have a scheduled upcoming trout stocking. It is usually every 2 weeks but again we do not have a permeant schedule.
