The marina was closed for four days this week due to not having power. The bluegill bite has been the best bet, and the best action has been morning and evening. A few redear, bass, and catfish, but the bluegill are providing the best action. Top spots for the ‘gills have been the outside edges of the weed beds, especially off the island, lots 11 and 12, and Sail Cove. Also some fish off the marina docks. Red worms, wax worms, crickets, and nightcrawler pieces are the best baits. Scott Johnson, Temecula, landed a half-pound bluegill off the marina dock on redworms. The bass are mostly showing on plastics, reaction baits, and topwater, with most 1-8 to 2-8. Marcus Anderson, Moreno Valley, had a pair of bass to three pounds on Senkos from shore near the launch ramps. A few carp are showing on dough baits in the east end, along all the parking lots, the marina area, and Sail Cove. David Turner, Corona, landed a 10-pounder on a dough bait. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing and scheduled to be done by early next year. During the process, the entire dam and Bernasconi Beach side of the lake, including the Bernasconi Beach parking area, will be closed to public access. (The closure includes the bicycle trail on the east side of the lake.) The recreation area remains open, including access for fishing, boating, camping, and hiking. The west side of the lake will remain open. Private boats must be inspected for zebra and quagga mussels. Boats with wet lower units will be turned away. Boats inspected and tagged at Silverwood or Diamond Valley will also be allowed at Perris. Information: marina 951-657-2179, state park 951-940-5600.

Busy recreational boat traffic has hampered fishing, especially on weekends, but there continues to be fair to good bluegill action and a pretty fair bass bite, especially early and late in the day. The bass are mostly showing on plastics, reaction baits, and topwater, with a lot of fish topping four pounds but most 1-8 to 2-8. The outside edges of weed beds have been the top spots. David Wright, Perris, had a three-pound bass on a nightcrawler fishing near the dam. The bluegill and redear bites are still best east of the island, along the dam, lots 11 and 12, and off the marina docks. Lots of weed beds to deal with, but the bite is decent early and late in the day. Crickets, meal worms, wax worms, or red worms are all getting fish. Juan Cedeno, Riverside, had 10 bluegill to a pound fishing crickets and meal worms off the marina docks. A few carp are showing on dough baits in the east end, along all the parking lots, the marina area, and Sail Cove. Also a few catfish reports from the north shore on cut baits and nightcrawlers. Trout are slow with no DFW plants for over a month. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing and scheduled to be done by early next year. During the process, the entire dam and Bernasconi Beach side of the lake, including the Bernasconi Beach parking area, will be closed to public access. (The closure includes the bicycle trail on the east side of the lake.) The recreation area remains open, including access for fishing, boating, camping, and hiking.

Both the panfish and largemouth bites continue to be fair to good, especially early and late in the day. The bass are mostly showing on plastics, reaction baits, and topwater, with a lot of fish topping four pounds but most 1-8 to 2-8. A 5-2 was caught by Dan Wheeler, Hemet on a nightcrawler east of the island, while Christopher Benito, Moreno Valley, landed a 4-6 bass on a Senko off the marina dock. The bluegill and redear bites are good, with the best action still east of the island and along the dam, but fish are also showing throughout the east end and along lots 11 and 12. Crickets, meal worms, wax worms, or red worms are all getting fish. A few carp are showing on dough baits in the east end, along all the parking lots, the marina area, and Sail Cove. Also a few catfish reports this week on the north shore on cut baits. Christopher Brown, Moreno Valley, landed a 25-pound catfish off the marina docks. Trout are slow with no DFW plants for over a month. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing and scheduled to be done by early next year.
