Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

Dusty Britches reporting from Lake Cuyamaca.

Ya know, I just spent 3 days working with Cuss Cussler and didn't hear one cussing cuss word out of the old Cuss; must be getting more refined with age. Kinda like a fine wine!

 

A good friend of the Lake, Stefan and his daughter Charlotte decided to play hookie last week and took a day to visit us. Charlotte wound up with a 5 pound 10 ounce rainbow trout. Not bad for an impulsive dad-daughter get away for a day. Sometimes, you just gotta do it!

Jerry Harpenau of El Cajon only caught 3 trout, but the three fish weighed 8 pounds. They were taken at Lone Pine on power bait and the largest fish weighed in at 4 pounds.

Lightening Trout are now stocked in our Lake. They arrived last Tuesday as part of a 1,000 pound plant from Mt. Lassen. Good fighting, good looking, and good tasting fish with a pink meat.

Bella Anderson of San Diego reeled in a 5 pound 8 ounce Lightening Trout at Lone Pine

Evi Anderson also brought in another Lightening Trout, also at Lone Pine.

Dustin Anderson bagged some more of the Lightening Trout. Hmm, I wonder if they are related?

I'll bet Dad wishes he did as good!

Brett Dykmans of El Cajon got his Lightening Trout right in front of the boat dock using night crawlers. The largest was a 2 pounder.

Connie Lares netted a 6 pound Lightening Trout at the buoy line next to the dam.

Jeff Sutton of Aliso Viejo caught a 5 pound rainbow trout with his limit of fish.

Cesar Gomez of San Diego brought in a couple of rainbows weighing 6 pounds and 4 pounds respectively over on Fletcher Island.

Angelique Quintero, a 6 year old, caught two bows with the largest weighing 4 pounds 8 ounces.

We just got word that a 7 pound 10 ounce rainbow and 5 pound 8 ounce Lightening Trout were brought in at Chambers Park.

The bass bite is just starting up. Being located higher in elevation, we get into it a little later in the season.

The Youth Turkey Hunt was a success with 10 year old Ken Wells taking a 10 pound bearded female on the first day of the two day hunt. Although several were seen the second day of the hunt (and shot at). Unfortunately, none were taken.

Congrat’s to all who participated and, again, thanks to Jay, Charlie, Ed and John!

Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

Dusty Britches here.

Ken Draper of Escondido brought in a stringer of trout with largest weighing in at 4 pounds 8 ounces.

Megan Young of El Cajon caught a 5 pound 7 ounce bow using rainbow power bait at Chambers Park.

Frank Van Buren of Santee also pulled in a 5 pound 8 ounce rainbow trout using orange power bait old school at Lone Pine.

Patrick Szydlih of San Diego nabbed a 7 pound monster trout at Chambers Park. Patrick didn't mention the type of bait he was using.

The CDFW, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, has been out checking on licensing, so make sure you have a valid California Fishing License out here. Some folks just got ticketed. These guys are sneeky; Serpico-like. They won’t even talk to our rangers. All this time I thought we were on the same side. Boy, was I wrong!

Wow! Some Bass!

Yellow Labs are a different type of mutt. For some reason they can’t stay out of a mud puddle. When they are finished, they look like a two-tone Chevy; cream over chocolate brown.

Our restaurant is serving up some fine eats. Come and check them out. Our Off Season pricing will end April 1st, so take advantage of some of the specials while you can. For example; a motorboat, full day off season price is only $25.00, regular price is $45.00.

The Junior Turkey Hunt will be this weekend, lets wish the best for the young guns, Ken Wills, Hunter Johnson, Ryan Segoria, and Nicholas Radtke. Thanks to Ed Zieralski and John King for their time and efforts to show the youngsters a bit about turkey hunting. This is the 2nd year that these two have teamed up with Charlie Taylor and Jay Blaylock to put the event on.

Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

Dusty Britches here along with Skid Mark, Cuss Cussler, and Crawdad!

Fishing has picked up with bass coming out of the south end of the Lake, limits of trout, and the black crappie are starting to show their snouts.

Miles Watanabe of La Mesa caught his limit of trout and 4 Channel catfish using night crawlers at MacGreger’s Cove

David Foti also did well at MacGregers Cove with 5 trout and 5 catfish using night crawlers

Dennis McCullough of Artesia, Ca. reeled in a 26 pound 4 ounce catfish using chicken livers on 8 pound test line below the west tent camping area next to the west jetty.

Wow! Some Bass!

Ed Schmutzler of Walnut Creek, Ca. used nightcrawlers to net a 5 pound 12 ounce trout along with his limit

Ken Draper of Escondido, Ca. included a 5 pound 5 ounce rainbow with his limit using a mice-tail and power bait combo at Lone Pine

Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

Dusty Britches along with Skid Mark and Cuss Cussler are here to say that the lunkers are still coming out!

Some good sized fish are being reeled in at the old pond these days on a consistent basis. President’s Weekend and Valentine’s day were both good for business. The crappie bite has even picked up. Bass, so far, are a no show. The water temperature is still a little chilly for the Largemouth up here. We are hoping for a change in the weather. Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

Other new features around the Lake include three Golden Eagles roosting in the tops of the pine trees at the east side of the south end. Several Ospreys are back in the area. The the restaurant IS open.

Wow! Some Bass!

The Golden Eagles stopped by my house to dine on a couple of my wife’s chickens. One was carried away, and the other was left half alive in the bush. The two laboradors were going nuts. I think the older one, Malakai, got a stiff neck watching the birds circle overhead. It’s a funny thing to watch one of your chickens fly off in the talons of a Golden Eagle. Enough of that.

The Junior Turkey Hunt is just around the corner, and the Lightning Trout are scheduled to be planted during the week of March 24th.

A caution has been issued and the word passed around to keep a close eye on your children and pets if you live in the area of Yaqui Road. A pair of mountain lions have been spotted by some tree cutters above the settlement heading down toward Apache Road in the afternoon. Seriously, keep a close eye on the kids and pets if you live or visit the area.

Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

Dusty Britches here.

Some beauties are coming out of the the old mud hole lately!

FISHING
Included in Lillia Bibby of San Diego’s stringer of fish was a 9 pound 8 ounce rainbow caught at Lone Pine Tree using green power bait.

Dave Moiller of La Mesa caught a 5 pound 4 ounce and a 6 pounder at the dike using nightcrawlers.

Ten year od Porter Sheppard of Temecula old bagged a 7 pound 10 ounce trout by the south side of the T Dock on a white mouse-tail

Mark and Bruce Bowers of Rancho San Diego included a 6 pound 10 ounce bow with their stringer using green power bait along the north shore of Fletcher Island.

Ernie Lastimado of Chula Vista using a nightcrawler and orange power bait (The Cuyamaca Sandwich) at Lone Pine reeled in a 5 pound 4 ounce rainbow.

Kaitlyn Porter and Ed Wahl of Alpine and Pacific Beach, respectively, brought in 17 pounds 8 ounces of fish using power bait on a floating power bait rig from Fletcher Island.

Jeff Carman of Julian, Ca. caught a 7 pound 4 ounce bow using chicken livers along the dike area.

The fish are obviously spread out and being caught on a vaiety of baits, nothing in particular for sure. We are applying for permits for the introduction of some new species of fish with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, Red Eared Perch and Spotted Bass.

Wow! Some Bass!

JUNIOR WATERFOWL HUNT
We completed our waterfowl hunting season with the Lake Cuyamaca Junior Waterfowl Hunt. All of the participants were given cordura pro series camo back-packs, duck commander duck calls, camo Turner’s ball caps, and hand warmers. Thanks to Amanda Hada of Turner’s Outdoor on Claremont Mesa Blvd. She helped make the event with the items listed above, but she also arranged for us to get a great deal on a Remington 870-12 gauge shot gun with a 28 barrel and wooden stock for the winner of our skeet shoot competition at the end of the day’s hunt.

Kyle Evans won the competition and the shot gun. Amazing enough, Kevin gave his shot gun to his father for his father’s birthday after his dad sustained a debilitating injury.

The other young guns were Joe Vechinski, Jacob Shepard, Eli Quinn, Blake Jerrell, Buster Hoy and Emery Fox.

I, also would like to give recognition to the following guides who mentored the junior waterfowl hunters, Jay Blaylock, Jene Callaway, Mike Meloche, Jon Freni, Curt Schilling, Jamie Lynn, and Chris Cornette. These people took time out of their busy lives to mentor the young guns. All were treated to their choice of meal at the Cuyamaca Restaurant. A lot of them had the steak and eggs. I think we might offer a limited menu next year!

Special thanks to Jay Blaylock and Charlie Taylor for making this event successful year after year. They have both demonstrated their passion for the sport.

And one more thanks to John Tellam who came through in a big way providing the event with a top of the line clay pigeon thrower.

JUNIOR TURKEY HUNT
On Saturday, March 22nd and Sunday, March 23rd we will be having our 2nd annual Lake Cuyamaca Junior Turkey Hunt. We want to find two juniors for each day to hunt with Ed Zieralski and John King. We would like to have enough response to get one girl and one boy for each day. Ed and John will include prizes for each participant each day and Lake Cuyamaca Restaurant will sponsor meals for each day. Please send in a postcard with the junior’s name, age, hunting license number, and a little information about the young gun’s experience. Send the postcards to:

Attention Junior Turkey Hunt
Lake Cuyamaca Recreation and Park District
15027 Hwy. 79
Julian, Calif. 92036

Since John David Massie of Ramona, California introduced the wild turkey back into the area, they have flourished. Just look around!

The fishing is picking up with limits caught and some trout being taken in the 7 to 10 pound range. The 9 pound 10 ounce rainbow was taken on the troll with a red roster tail. There are some awesome pictures in the bait and tackle shop that tell last week's story on fishing.

 

Our waterfowl season is all but over. We have the Junior Waterfowl Hunt and competitive shoot on February 1st. For the first time in a long time we have had a great response with all blinds filled with juniors and guides for each.

 

The competitive shoot will be for a new Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun. It will be a trap-shoot with clay pigeons.

 

We are hoping for rain in the next few weeks as winter is almost over and no precipitation to show for it. Not good for the upcoming fire season. The Lake level is down below 23' at the dam, very low.

The restaurant is having a special on your choice of a Rack of lamb or Salmon dinner with all the trimmings for around $16.00 on Valentine's day. Meal time starts at 4:30 p.m. so bring your honey-baby sweetie pie and enjoy the Lake atmosphere!

It's obvious when Trout Teasergets depressed. She starts re-pricing everything in the bait and tackle shop!

Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

Dusty Britches here.

The weather is dry and windy. A few of the trout that have been planted are being caught, but it’s not a bonanza out there.

We had a thousand pounds of rainbow trout planted by Mt. Lassen last week and we are scheduled to have another 1,200 pounds coming in on February 10th. Rumor has it that we will be getting our first stocking of the Lightening Trout in March.

Notable catches include Kevin O’Kesson of Ramona reeled in a limit with the largest bow coming in at 5 pounds 8 ounces using a micetail along the dike. Kevins stringer weighed 7 pounds.

Veinon Parris of Ramona caught an 8 pounder using nightcrawlers on the north shore.

Michael McCarthy of Imperial Beach included a 4 pound 4 ounce in his stringer using rainbow power bait on Fletcher Island.

Jim and Samantha Leibold brought in a limit of 5 fish weighing 12 pounds 8 ounces on the dike using nightcrawlers.

Wow! Some Bass!

David B. Keeler nabbed a 4 pound 8 ounce eeler using green power bait at Lone Pine.

Rachel Holland of San Diego caught a 5 pound 8 ounce rainbow at Lone Pine using yellow power bait.

Josh Eaton and Anthony Paynor got into some larger fish with landing 6 pound 8ounce and 4 pound 8 ounce rainbows baiting up with the Cuyamaca Sandwich, half a nightcrawler (inflated) and power bait, along the dike.

Kathy Hartol from Menifee brought in a 4-fish stringer weighing 10 pounds with the larges tipping the scales at 5 pounds 8 ounces at Lone Pine.

Robert Heltmach of Temecula nabbed a 5 pound 12 ounce rainbow using bright green sparkle Berkeley power bait at Lone Pine.

Finally, Jerry Leggieri of Valatie, New York brought in a 6 pound trout on Fletcher Island from shore using a nightcrawler.

NOTICE: Wounded Warrior Waterfowl Hunt Tuesday, January 21st til noon. Fishing willbe allowed only on the north shore between the Dam and the Dike until after the hunt.

Regular Waterfowl Hunting takes place on Sunday mornings and all day Wednesdays. There is limited areas for fishing those days.

Please stop by and try some of the fine food being cooked up daily ay our restaurant. You won't be dissapointed!

A little funny story; we found that two enterprising young men had passed a counterfeit $10.00 bill at our market the other day. We discovered it and went to the bank to report it. They confirmed that the bill was counterfeit. We tried to find the two young men, but were unsuccessful until they showed up later that day with a nice sized trout that they had caught earlier. We recognized them, and, of course wanted to take pictures of their catch. So we did. Lots of pictures. We even got one of them standing in front of their truck with the license number of the truck. We will be passing that information on to the local Sheriff for future reference. Sometimes it just makes you wonder!
