The weather this week didn’t slow down the largemouth bass bite much, with lots of fish tight up in the shallows and fanning out beds. Most of the action has been on small plastic worms and swimbaits. Most of the fish being landed are one to three pounds, but some bigger females are starting to show. Chuck Wittenbrock, Upland, had a six-pound bass on a Roboworm, while John Enciso, San Clemente, caught and released 11 bass from 2-8 to four pounds on Senkos. Bill Williams, Beaumont, had a five-pound bass on a live cricket. The striper bite is still slow with only a few fish showing in deep water on trolled baits from the east end and along the north shore in 50 feet of water. Catfish are improving with a few showing in the south shoreline areas, mostly on chicken liver. The bluegill bite is also starting to improve with a few showing on crickets and red worms in deeper water. Other species are slow. Information: store 951-926-1505 or marina 951-926-8515.

Striper action is low right now. The only way they are being caught are lead core lines 50 feet down fly fishing or deep trolling. Blue Gill are starting to pick up on live crickets, robo worms and red worms. Catfish are becoming more active as the water warms up. They can be caught on chicken livers, anchovies, and gulp bait. Large Mouth are still up tight in the tullies but can be caught on white jigs and robo worms. No recent Trout plants. Carp are doing well. Try your favorite carp dough along the banks or under heavy cover.

The first part of the week was quiet but has steadily improved after the rains. Shad have been moving deep this leading to a decline in Striper action. Blue Gill are starting to pick up with live crickets and red worms being the best bait. Catfish are showing up in low numbers but can be caught over in the coves using chicken lovers, anchovies, night crawlers and Gulp bait. No spawning beds for the Bass yet. They are still tight up in the Tullies. No trout. Carp are around, you just have to go find them. Try dough balls along banks or under heavy cover.

The striper bite stayed tough this past week with the weather over the weekend. The few stripers being reported have come from the east end and along the north shore and most from deeper water on cut baits. Shad were tough to get as bait. The largemouth bass are fair to good with the fish flooding into the shallows and some already fanning out beds. Best bite on plastics and reaction baits. The catfish action also saw some improvement this past week with a couple of nice fish landed. Bluegill are still mostly slow. Information: store 951-926-1505 or marina 951-926-8515.

The striper bite has continued fair to good this past week, and the best action continues to be on the live shad. Flicker Shad or similar lures are also producing a few fish. The fish are on top working bait and fishing in the top five feet of the water column in the east end and along the north shore has been the best bet. Most of the fish are one to three pounds, but some bigger fish are showing. Alan Smith, Escondido, had an eight-pound striper at the inlet. The largemouth bass are fair with some fish still in 10 feet or less of water. The catfish action also saw some improvement this past week with a couple of nice fish landed. Andres Arrendondo, Moreno Valley, landed a 13-pound cat to top off his three-fish, 20-pound stringer, while Travis Brown, Hemet, had a nine-pounder on an anchovy. Other species very slow.
