Lake is still plagued by floating debris and muddy water

Castaic Lake - Castaic, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Castaic Lake held near 56 percent of capacity, and the lake is still plagued by floating debris and muddy water. Conditions have been improving slowly, but Pyramid is still the better option. Bass anglers scored a few bites on finesse baits, and the occasional crankbait fish has also hit the scales. Trout anglers have had to work around the floating debris, but prior to the storm series the lake had received a long string of trout plants. Once the water clears up the bite will resume. There was a trout plant scheduled this week. Striper ate cut baits from shore, and catfish took dip bait and fresh shrimp on the long soak.
