Jump in water level moved the fish around a bite, but the bite is still generally. The bluegill and redear bites remain good. Top areas have been around the island, marina area, dam, and east end. Most of the fish are showing on crickets, wax worms, red worms, or micro jigs tipped with these baits. Sean Williams, Riverside, had eight bluegill to 1-8 on crickets and wax worms off the marina docks. Thomas Robretson, Austin, Tex., had 13 bluegill and redear to 1-3 on the south side of the islands fishing small jigs with crickets. The largemouth bass are pretty good around the island, off the dam, and at lots 11 and 12. Most of the fish are on the outside edges of the weeds. The action is best on plastic worms or Senkos and Brush Hawgs fished in six to 20 feet of water, especially early and late in the day. Still quite a bit of surface action. Paul Jones, San Jacinto, had four bass on plastics with his best a 5-7. A few catfish and carp, but little fishing pressure on those species. 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 bluegill and redear bites remain good. Top areas have been around the island, marina area, dam, and east end. Most of the fish are showing on crickets, wax worms, red worms, or micro jigs tipped with these baits. The largemouth bass are fair. The action is best on plastic worms or Senkos and Brush Hawgs fished in six to 20 feet of water, especially on the west side of the island and all around the lake on the outside edge of the weed lines. Also a lot more surface action this week for anglers fishing smaller topwater in the mornings. Diana Cortez, Baldwin Park, had a four-pound bass on a drop-shot plastic off the islands. A few catfish and carp, but little fishing pressure on those species. 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.
