The bite slowed across the board with the colder, wet weather this past weekend. The stripers have been fair, especially early in the morning at the dsam on cut baits, topwater, and rip baits. The largemouth bass bite is also pretty fair on plastic worms. Best largemouth reported was a 6-1 caught by Jackson Williams, Yucaipa, while a six-even bass was landed by Cheryl Clementson, Elsinroe, on a nightcrawler. Other species have been slow, except for the trout. There were DFW trout plants last week and three weeks ago. Most of the trout have been showing around Ramp No. 2, most on small spinners, Power Mice, or floating baits. There will not be any county trout plants this season.

SKINNER: Overall slow action, but the striped bass bite remains pretty good for anglers who can dip some live shad, spotty otherwise. The best bite has been early in the morning along the north shore and North Bay. Brandon Smyth, Menifee, had an 8-2 striper on live shad. Other species are also tough with only an occasional bass or bluegill. Dennis Sketchly, Lake Elsinore, had a 7-9 bass fishing nightcrawlers on the north shore, while Sammy Sanchez, Menifee, land a 1-2 bluegill in the east end on a nightcrawler. DFW trout are slated to go in this week, and there have been a few half-pound rainbows showing around Ramp No. 2. There will not be any county trout plants this season.

    SKINNER: The striper action lulled a little with the weather this past week, but a fair number of fish are still showing in the east end for anglers who have been able to dip some shad. Slow otherwise. The largemouth bite has remained fair and is probably the best bet right now for anglers fishing deeper water with plastics and jigs or the live shad. Ryan White, Perris, landed an eight-pound largemouth on a jig off the north shore, while Cory Snider, Murrieta, had a six-pounder on a nightcrawler at Ramp No. 1. Other species have slowed way down although a few nice bluegill and the odd catfish continue to show. Bethany Henderson, Lake Elsinore, had a 1-2 bluegill on a nightcrawler at Ramp No. 1. The marina reports DFW trout plants went in Dec. 16 (not the week before as the DFW on-line plant list said), and DFW has Skinner on the plant list again for this week. Overall slow action on the rainbows. There will not be any county plants this season. Information: store 951-926-1505, marina 951-926-8515, entrance kiosk 951-926-1541.
