Other resorts and lakes have closed for the season, but we are open and going strong. We are here for all you end-of-the-season trout fishing enthusiasts.
In honor of Veterans Day, we want to thank all of you who have served our country. We appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. You are the best of the best!
Fish are definitely coming up from the deeper water. South Shore around the picnic area has been a hot spot, as well as, North Shore around the old Hangman’s Tree.
Night crawlers, pinched crawlers, garlic power bait in various colors continue to be the baits pulling in the big ones.
Big catches this week include:
- Chelsie from Grass Valley pulled in a 4 ¾ lbs., 21 ½ inch lunker using garlic cheese and corn power bait on South Shore.
- Eric from Victorville used salmon eggs on South Shore to snag a 2 ¼ lbs. rainbow on South Shore.
- James from Alpine was at the Inlet and caught a nice 1 lbs. trout on garlic power bait.
- Ron from Santa Clarita brought in a 2 ½ lbs. rainbow using orange power eggs on South Shore by the picnic area.
- Sue from Big Bear had a fantastic day by catching 3 beauties weighing 5 lbs. 5 lbs., and 5 ½ lbs. on power bait. WOW!
- Greg pulled in a whopper at 4 ¾ lbs. on a night crawler on South Shore.
- John and Mark from San Diego had a total of 18 lbs. of rainbows. They were definitely excited about their 4 ½ lbs., 5 lbs., and 3 ¾ lbs. lunkers caught on garlic power bait on North Shore.
