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. 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.

Both the bluegill/redear and largemouth bites are pretty good. The bass have really started to break open, especially on topwater baits, and a lot of fish have been up into the five and six-pound range. Christopher Benito, Riverside, had a six-pound largemouth fishing Senkos off Lots 11 and 12, while Mike Williams, Moreno Valley, had three bass to 4.6 pounders on plastics east of the island. The bluegill and redear bites are good, improved from last week, with the best action east of the island or at the dam on small jigs, meal worms, wax worms, or red worms. Allen and Molly Chin, Orange, had a mixed stringer of five bluegill and redear to 1.4 pounder on crickets and meal worms at the dam. Anglers targeting carp are reporting some nice fish on dough baits in the east end, along all the parking lots, the marina area, and Sail Cove. Trout are slow with no DFW plants for over a month. Also no catfish reports. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing and scheduled to be done by early next year.

 The bluegill and redear bites are good with most of the fish in 10 to 12 feet of water and showing on small jigs, meal worms, wax worms, or red worms right on the bottom. The east of the island has been the hot spot. The largemouth bass bite has been fair to good with some fish starting to show on topwater early and late in the day and plastics the rest of the time. Anglers targeting carp are reporting some nice fish on dough baits in the east end, along all the parking lots, the marina area, and Sail Cove. Trout are slow with no DFW plants for over a month. Also no catfish reports. The reconstruction of the Lake Perris dam is ongoing and scheduled to be done by early next year.
