Anglers reported fair fishing in the aqueduct with catfish as the best bet

California Aqueduct - CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Anglers reported fair fishing in the aqueduct with catfish as the best bet. Whisker fish went for chicken liver, fresh shrimp, and dip bait soaked on the bottom. Striper anglers used many of those same baits along with jumbo live minnows and bloodworms. The best bet has been to soak bait after check gates. A few line-sides were also reported by anglers throwing jerkbaits and Flukes on a jig head. Bass anglers used finesse baits in green pumpkin and baitfish colors for bites in slower moving water.
