Buena Vista Lakes Fish Report for 3-3-2023
The latest trout plant provided excellent fishing for everyone
Buena Vista Lakes - Bakersfield, CA (Kern County)
by Chad Burton and Chris Borden
The latest trout plant provided excellent fishing for everyone who braved recent weather. The usual line up of minijigs, crankbaits, dough baits, and nightcrawlers did the trick for local anglers, and the results were amazing. The trout plant occupied many of the crappie anglers, but the crappie bite is still on. Small swimbaits and jigs in white, chartreuse, and baitfish colors have been very effective, and a boat or a kayak seem to be the ticket to locating biting fish. Catfish ate fresh shrimp, chicken liver, and dip bait.
