Due to poor conditions, there were few reports last week

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Castaic Lake is at about 45 percent of capacity and recent storms absolutely filled the marina with debris. Launch at your own risk; numerous boaters reported clogged cooling systems and overheated motors after launching. Due to poor conditions, there were few reports last week. However, shore anglers reported decent fishing while using finesse techniques and bait. Bass went for drop shot, Ned rigs, and Carolina rigs in deeper water. A slower presentation with small baits worked the best for most anglers. Striper ate cut sardines and anchovies rigged Carolina style and soaked on the bottom. A few catfish were also reported by striper anglers. The good news is that kayak anglers found a great crappie bite in the lagoon. The trick has been to find the deep-water shad schools and work vertical spoons and ice jigs for bites.
