Pyramid Lake, CA - Caswell, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

The lake level remained near 90 percent of capacity, and water temperatures continued to fall. With Castaic Lake closed Pyramid saw a lot more anglers, and fishing has been good. Large and smallmouth were the best bets with deep diving crankbaits working for bites early and finesse techniques working later in the day. Most of the bass held in 10 to 20 feet of water over rocky structure, and Aaron’s Magic, brown, and purple have been good color choices for finesse anglers. Striped bass took cut baits and lugworms at the inlet and along the swim beach. Anglers also trolled A-rigs and umbrella rigs for good numbers of 2 to 3 pound line-sides. Catfish ate dip bait and chicken liver in deeper coves around the lake.
