Castaic rose to 55 percent of capacity

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Castaic rose to 55 percent of capacity, and the launch ramp is still a nightmare. Water temperatures held is the mid-fifties, but clarity has been poor. If you choose to launch, be sure to watch for all the floating logs while motoring. Trout remained the best bet at the lake with anglers doing well with dough baits, minijigs, and nightcrawlers. Reports from bass anglers have been slow, but finesse techniques fooled fish from 5 to 40 feet deep. In the warmer parts of the day bass can be found cruising the newly covered shorelines. Catfish and striper have been taking cut sardines and live worms on the C-rig from shore.
