Fishing at Castaic is very good. The stripers and largemouth bass are boiling on shad. Topwater, kastmastes and other shad pattern lures are working best. The Bluegill are biting good in shallow brush on waxworms, mealworms and small plastics.

The striped bass have been boiling this past week and there has been some good quality fish in this bite. Topwater baits, surface rip baits, and spoons are all getting stripers to 10 pounds when they boil, but sardine and blood worms are also working on deeper, metered fish when the fish aren’t up. The largemouths, and smallmouths all up chasing shad morning and evening. Reaction baits are best early and late, but some bigger fish showing on jigs in deeper water. The bluegill bite remains fair to good in both the upper and lower lakes, but the weed beds continue to be troublesome. Tons of small fish, but some bigger fish to a pound and meal worms are the top bait, but red worms, nightcrawler pieces, crickets, and wax worms also good. Trout are slow, with no recent plants and none likely until winter. A few catfish reports on quality fish, but the fish are few and far between. Few anglers targeting the cats.

The bluegill bite remains good in both the upper and lower lakes, but the weed beds are getting thick making the fishing more difficult. Tons of small fish, but some bigger fish to a pound and meal worms are the top bait, but red worms, nightcrawler pieces, crickets, and wax worms also good. All the bass are fair to good now, with the stripers, largemouths, and smallmouths all up chasing shad morning and evening. The stripers are best on shad-like swimbaits and cranks, either cast or trolled and there are surface boils most mornings. Also a few on blood worms in 40 to 70 feet of water. For the black bass, good action on reaction baits early and late, but some bigger fish showing on jigs in deeper water. Trout are slow, with no recent plants and none likely until winter. A few catfish reports on quality fish, but the fish are few and far between. For information call the marina at 661-775-6232 (www.CastaicLake.com) or Tackle Express at 661-251-8700.
