The catfish bite has been good and there was a county catfish plant last Friday (Aug. 18). The catfish bite has been best on cut baits along Catfish Alley, at Ramp No. 2, and all along the south shore coves, especially near the tules. A 12-pound catfish was landed by John Mallory, Murrieta, fishing anchovies in Catfish Alley. Santi Cherry, Lake Elsinore, had a stringer of three catfish and the big one was 9.2 pounds. All were caught on cut mackerel in the cove near Ramp No. 2. The largemouth bite has been fair with most of the fish on plastics and some on topwater. Jake Muthu, Riverside, landed a 3 1/2-pound bass on a plastic off the north shore. The stripers remain fair with early morning and late evening boils on shad, especially at the inlet (water has been coming in this week) and buoy line, but most fish are showing in deep water on sardines or chicken liver, but more this week on swimbaits and umbrella rigs. The bluegill bite is slow to fair, with a fair number of smaller fish around reeds and other cover along the north shore. Wax worms, crickets, and meal worms have been top baits. Carp are getting little pressure, but the bite has been good on dough baits in Catfish Alley and along the south shore.
