Castaic Lake Fishing Report

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Castaic Lake Staff

Being back open has been a nice change but the wind has been an enemy lately for bait launching. Half the week was shut down to launching because of the wind. On the calmer days anglers have been having some luck with bass and stripers mainly. We had a court plant at the beginning of the week and it has been pretty tough to catch trout. A few anglers are having luck with Powerbait and garlic nightcrawler.

The largemouth are also eating nightcrawler off of the bottom. Plastics on the drops hot and Carolina-rig have also been working. Some anglers have had luck down deep with sardines and anchovies, and some have been able to spoon or ice jig one or two. The swimbait bite is tough but has been productive for those willing to grind it out. The Catfish has been a little on the slow side. Bluegill are crappie are biting off smaller swimbaits and jigs.
