The bluegill and redear bites remain fair to good, and some better fish are showing again. Top areas have been around the dam and Sail Cove. Most of the fish are showing on crickets, wax worms, red worms, or micro jigs tipped with these baits in deeper water. Charles Jones, Riverside, had 18 bluegill from Sail Cove on crickets and wax worms and his best fish was 1-9. The largemouth bass are still showing in a pretty fair topwater bite early in the morning and late in the evening, with some fish on plastics other parts of the day. Most of the fish are on the outside edges of the weeds. Richard Young, Chino Hills, had four bass to 4-2 on topwaters and plastics fishing west of the island. A few catfish and carp, but little fishing pressure on those species. Juan Reyes, Victorville, had a 15-2 catfish on mackerel off the marina point. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing. 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.
