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. Sheldon Lewis, Moreno Valley, had 27 carp over two days with his best at 13-8, all on homemade dough bait. Andy Chow, Diamond Bar, landed a 20-7 carp on corn bait off the marina docks. The largemouth bass also remain fair on plastic worms. Senkos, and lipless cranks along the weed lines all around the lake. The dam and outlets have been the hots spots and while most fish are three pounds or under, there have been some better fish reported. Tops this week was a 6-2 landed by Earl Johnson, Menifee, near the dam on a lipless crank. It was the best of three fish he landed. 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. Few reports on other species with no DFW 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 largemouth bass are fair to good on plastic worms. Senkos, and lipless cranks along the weed lines all around the lake. The dam and outlets have been the hots spots and while most fish are three pounds or under, there have been some better fish reported. Kenyon Smith, Redlands, landed a 7.2-pounder on a swimbait in Sail Cove. As good or better are the bluegill and redear bites, especially for anglers fishing off the dam and west of the islands in 15 to 25 feet of water with wax worms, meal worms, red worms, and crickets. Robert Meyers, Moreno Valley, had a mixed stringer of 17 bluegill and redear to 1.7 pounds fishing meal worms and redworms off the Bernasconi weed line. Few reports on other species with no DFW trout plants yet this season. There was an 11.2-pound carp reported by Peter Lee, Riverside, on a nightcrawler 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 bluegill and redear continue to show in pretty good numbers for anglers fishing off the dam and west of the islands from boats in 15 to 25 feet of water with wax worms, meal worms, red worms, and crickets. Paul Mitchell, Moreno Valley, had 13 redear and bluegill to 2.2 pounds on meal worms and wax worms. The largemouth bass are fair to good on plastic worms and lipless cranks along the weed lines all around the lake. The dam and outlets have been the hots spots. Top fish this week was a 6.3-pounder caught by Mike Walters, Chino Hills. He had six fish on cranks and topwater near the outlet. The catfish bite has continued for anglers fishing cut baits off the points around the marina and launch ramps. 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.
