The carp bite continues to be fair on homemade dough baits. The bite has been good all along the north shore from Sail Cove to the launch ramps and off the marina docks. Big fish reported this past week was a 22.1-pounder caught by Walter Handcock, Redlands. It was his best of three fish, all caught on homemade dough baits at lots 11 and 12. The DFW trout plant last Tuesday brought a few anglers out for the rainbows and the bite was fair, mostly on PowerBait, Power Mice, or small jigs and lures. Jerome Baker, San Jacinto, had a pair of one-pound class rainbows off the marina docks. The largemouth bass are slow to fair on drop-shot or Texas-rigged plastic worms. Bill Palmer, Hesperia, had three bass to 3.2 pounds on football-head jigs of the marina point. The bluegill and redear bites slowed this week, but a few are showing from deep water off the island, at the dam, and around the marina docks on redworms or meal worms. Very few other species reports and no trout plants yet this season. 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.

The carp bite continues to be fair on homemade dough baits. The bite has been good all along the north shore from Sail Cove to the launch ramps and off the marina docks. Lee Yiu, El Monte, had five carp to six pounds on a masa dough bait off the docks. The largemouth bass are slow to fair on drop-shot plastic worms or deep-diving cranks at the dam and outlet in 15-plus feet of water. The bluegill and redear bites slowed this week, but a few are showing from deep water off the island, at the dam, and around the marina docks.

The carp bite continues to get a lot of attention here with some big fish showing on homemade dough baits. The bite has been good all along the north shore from Sail Cove to the launch ramps. This week Andy Chow, Diamond Bar, had eight carp to 15-8 on a homemade dough bait off the marina docks. The largemouth bass also remain fair on drop-shot plastic worms at the dam and outlet in 15-plus feet of water. Christopher Mitchel, Yucaipa, had three bass to 5-4 on deep-diving cranks in the outlet area. The bluegill and redear bites are also still fair. Bluegill anglers are seeing the best action off the dam and west of the islands in 15 to 25 feet of water with wax worms, meal worms, red worms, and crickets. The redear are starting to show off the marina docks. Troy Miller, Hemet, had four bluegill to 1-2 on waxworms off the marina docks. Few reports on other species with no DFW trout plants yet this season. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing.
