The bluegill bite has stayed pretty good for anglers fishing at the dam, along the south shoreline, or between the tire reef and island. Most of the fish are in 20 feet of water and hitting crickets, wax worms, or meal worms. Still some quality bluegill in the bite. Juan Carlos, Riverside, had 14 bluegill to 1-8 fishing crickets on the marina docks. The largemouth bass are pretty good early mornings and evenings on plastic worms and live bait. The outlet tower has been a top spot, but the whole south shoreline has been good, too. The catfish have been fair to good all along the north shoreline on cut mackerel or nightcrawlers fished on the bottom. Noel Chavez, Perris, had two catfish and his top fish was a 13-1, both on mackerel. 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.

Catfish have been out all over the North Shore lines bitting on Mackrel and or nightcrawlers. Bass have been most active during the mornings and the evenings bitting on plastic worms and live bait. Bluegills are still coming in near the Dam in about 20 fett of water or near the South Shore line in between the tire reef and the Island hitting on crickets, waxworms and mealworms.

The bluegill bite has been good but the bite has been more focused off the south end of the island between the tire reef and the island in 20 to 25 feet of water. Most are showing on crickets, meal worms, and wax worms. Frank Goobinheimer, Norco, had 18 bluegill fishing wax worms and crickets and his top fish was 1-8. The largemouth bass are pretty good for a narrow windown in the morning on topwater baits and fly-lined Senkos, especially around the outlet tower and along the south shoreline. Dave Whitman, Riverside, had a 7-4 bass to top off his catch of four fish on Spooks. The catfish have been fair to good all around the lake on cut baits fished on the bottom. Kyle Cox, Redlands, landed a 13-8 catfish on mackerel off the marina docks. 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.
