     SKINNER: Trout fishing has been fair with some trophy fish from the county plants. The DFW plant was two weeks ago, and there were county plants last week and two weeks ago. Additional county plants will go in the weeks of March 9 and March 23. The best bite has been at Ramp No. 2 on PowerBait, Mice Tails, trout jigs, and small spoons and spinners. Luis Garcia, San Jacinto, had a limit of rainbows that included a seven-pound rainbow. The trout plants also stimulated the trophy striped bass bite. Jason Schalck, San Diego, had a 23-pound striper on a Slide Swimmer near the marina. There also continue to be a fair number of smaller stripers showing on cut baits (mostly mackerel or chicken liver) and shad, with some also on topwater and jerk baits. The largemouth bite has also been very good with a lot of fish moving into the shallows for the spawn. Trevor Williams, Banning, caught and released six bass to five pounds on plastics. A few bluegill, including some fish over a pound, continue to show at Ramp No. 2 on nightcrawlers or small jigs. A few catfish are also showing, but they are getting little pressure. Information: store 951-926-1505, marina 951-926-8515, entrance kiosk 951-926-1541.

     SKINNER: Trout fishing has been fair to good with state fish planted last Tuesday, with the fish split between ramps No. 1 and No. 2, and then the more trout went in on Friday at Ramp No. 2. There was another trout plant Wednesday this week, again at Ramp No. 2. The bite has been best on small jigs, trout plastics, spinners or small spoons, inflated nightcrawlers and floating dough baits. There is still a little confusion on if the Friday and Wednesday plants were county or DFW fish, but for anglers it doesn’t matter. The DFW tentatively plans to plant every two weeks through the rest of trout season (until the water gets too warm), but it has been reported there would be additional plants (by the county?) the weeks of March 9 and March 23. These are the first trout plants in over two years. The trout also stimulated the trophy striped bass bite. There were fish at 19, 22, and 23 pounds reported late last week, and one of the big fish had five rainbow trout in its stomach. There also continue to be a fair number of smaller stripers showing on cut baits (mostly mackerel or chicken liver) and shad, with some also on topwater and jerk baits. Fred Romero, Temecula, had a pair of five-pound stripers caught on worms at mid-lake. The largemouth bite has also been very good with a lot of fish moving into the shallows in the high water this week. Lots of three to four-pound fish. Brian Walker, Temecula, caught an eight-pound bass on a crawdad off the north shore, while Greg Peterson, Temecula, landed a six-pounder on a worm, also off the north shore. A few bluegill, including some fish over a pound, continue to show at Ramp No. 2 on nightcrawlers or small jigs. A few catfish are also showing, but they are getting little pressure. Water levels are still high, but should be dropping back down this week. Information: store 951-926-1505, marina 951-926-8515, entrance kiosk 951-926-1541.
