The striped bass bite has been off and on over the past week. The best bite has been for anglers are slow-trolling flies or tossing trout-like swimbaits from shore. Also more fish showing from the inlet-outlet tower on cut baits. A 3,500-pound plant of Mt. Lassen rainbows was set to go in this week. Small trout jigs, Kastmasters, inflated nightcrawlers with scent, and PowerBait have been the best bets. The largemouth bite is improving with the fish starting to move shallower in a pre-spawn movement of fish. Drop-shot plastics and swimbaits off the islands or main points have been best. Panfish have been slow, but a few crappie were reported this week on small jigs tipped with bait. No bluegill or redear reports. Private boats must be inspected to be quagga mussel-free and boats certified at Lake Perris and Lake Skinner will be accepted here. For general lake and launch information, call 800-590-LAKE.

The striped bass bite continues to improve with fair action over the past week and quite a few better quality fish. Most anglers are slow-trolling flies, using umbrella rigs, or tossing trout-like swimbaits from shore, but the bite has been improving at the inlet-outlet tower on cut baits. DFW trout were planted at the launch ramp Feb. 7 and a 3,500-pound plant of Mt. Lassen rainbows is slated for Feb. 22. Small trout jigs, Kastmasters, inflated nightcrawlers with scent, and PowerBait have been the best bets. The largemouth bite has been slow on swimbaits at mid-depths or in deeper water on drop-shot plastics. Fishing off the islands or main points has been best. Panfish have been slow, but a few crappie were reported this week on small jigs tipped with bait. No bluegill or redear reports. Private boats must be inspected to be quagga mussel-free and boats certified at Lake Perris and Lake Skinner will be accepted here. For general lake and launch information, call 800-590-LAKE.

The trout bite has been slow to fair, with most of the fish showing on PowerBait, small jigs, and trout plastics. County trout plants are weekly, and DFW rainbows were also planted two weeks ago. Steve Montel, San Bernardino, had a three-pound catfish on a jig from the small lake. Information: 909-887-7540.
