Surface water temperatures are still in the low 70s, but are finally starting to drop with cooler nights. Overall, the bite remains slow to fair. A few trout are showing for shoreline anglers fishing on the North Shore from Old Gray’s Landing to the Buoy Line (Red House) near the dam. Dough baits and inflated ‘crawlers fished on a three to four foot leader or a slip-bobber rig in deeper water. Boat anglers are either trolling (sloooowly) with flashers and lures of drifting a nightcrawler on a slip-bobber rig mid-lake the buoy line to Gilner Point at depths of 12 to 25 feet. Early morning is best for shore or boat trout fishing. DFW trout were planted last week and three weeks ago. They are also scheduled to go in next week. A few catfish are showing on cutbaits with added scent, and the panfish action is finally starting to show, especially in Papoose Bay, but the bite is still iffy. The bite on bullheads is wide open along all shorelines areas. For updated fishing information: Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store’s Facebook page.

Surface water temperatures are 72 degrees at the west end near the dam and 75 degrees at Juniper Point. These high temps have the trout in a funk, but a few fish are showing for shoreline anglers fishing on the North Shore from Old Gray’s Landing to the Buoy Line (Red House) near the dam. Dough baits and inflated ‘crawlers fished on a three to four foot leader or a slip-bobber rig in deeper water.

Bank anglers are only getting a few fish off Gilner and Lagonita Point on the south shore or from Gray’s Landing to the dam on the north shore. The only bite has been before 9 or 10 a.m. in the morning on dough baits. Some evening action just before dark. Trollers are also having more difficultly the best bite in the center of the lake (not Trout Alley or the Trout Triangle) in six to 15 feet of water (1 1/2 to three colors of leadcore) with micro flashers and the small Thomas Buoyants and Needlefish in reds and golds or pearl bikini colors. Glo Dodgers trailing a wedding ring tipped off with a piece of nightcrawler has also been good. Only very slow trolling has been working, called “drift speed” by the locals. Bass have been fair with a lot of fish shallow on plastics and topwater lures are starting to work. The panfish bite is surprisingly slow. Lots of small bullhead along most shorelines. The carp bowfishing season is in full swing, with a lot of big carp in the shallows. For updated fishing information: Big Bear Sporting Goods at 909-866-3222 or visit the store’s Facebook page.
