Lake Skinner Fishing Report

Lake Skinner - Temecula, CA (Riverside County)

by Lake Skinner Marina Staff
(951) 926-8515

Striped Bass: The striper bite has remained the same. If you prefer to target this species we would suggest using deeper diving hard baits or even trolling throughout the lake in hopes to connect to one of these beauties.

Bluegill: Medium action, still coming in as one fo the best bites at the lake. Very possible to break wide open in the right spot fishing with mealworms or crickets.

Catfish: Slowed a bit this week but still catches being reported near the inlet. The lakes water else is very high, so the current has slowed near the inlet allowing for better catfish. Use chicken liver or anchovies for best results.

Largemouth Bass: A few regulars have reported decent jerk bait fishing with a faster than usual retrieve, while taking long pauses. Another successful bait of recent has been the good ole Senko, wacky rig preferred.

Trout: Last trout stock was 1/16/21.
