Striper to ten pounds have been reported throughout the aqueduct

California Aqueduct - CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Striper to ten pounds have been reported throughout the aqueduct, and most of them have been taken on cut baits. Sardines, anchovies, fresh shrimp, and jumbo live minnows all scored bites after check gates. Anglers also fooled jailbirds with Flukes on a jig head, jerkbaits, and rattle traps. Largemouth fell for drop shot grubs, topwater, and Senkos in slower moving sections of the aqueduct. Some of the preferred largemouth spots are in the eddies before and after check gates, bridge pylons, and out take grates. Catfishing has been excellent for anglers soaking dip bait, chicken liver, and cut baits. The catfish seem to hold in the same locations as described above.
