County plants last week, and DFW trout are scheduled to go in this week. A few trout are finally starting to show for anglers fishing Roostertails, PowerBait, and salmon eggs along the south shore and handicap area. Stripers have been good early in the morning at the handicap area on bigger, trout-like swimbaits. Smaller fish are showing on umbrella rigs or trolled flies. Bait anglers are also getting a few smaller stripers at Launch No. 2. Francisco Charvez, Temecula, landed two stripers to 5-4 on swimbaits along the south shore near Ramp No. 2. The rain has stirred up the catfish a little and some nicer fish are showing at Ramp No. 2 and the east end of the lake. Leonard Gallo, Chula Vista, had four catfish to 12.9 pounds fishing anchovies and chicken liver near the buoy line. The largemouth bass bite has been slow to fair along the south shorelines on reaction baits, plastics, and nightcrawlers. Most are in deeper water now. The bluegill bite has been very slow.

 DFW trout plants last week and three weeks ago. Both the county and DFW have plants slated for next week. A few trout are finally starting to show for anglers fishing Roostertails, PowerBait, and salmon eggs at Launch Ramp No. 2 and up in the east end. Stephen Trinadad, French Valley, had four rainbows to 2.7 pounds on worms. Stripers have been spotty. Top spots have been the south shoreline and across from the marina. Most of the stripers are showing on small swimbaits or anchovies, but some also showing on trolled flies. Catfish are mostly slow, but a few showing from deep water on cut baits and nightcrawlers, especially at Ramp No. 2 and the inlet. Channel Ortiz, Murrieta, had cats at 5.5 and six pounds on anchovies at Ramp No. 2. The largemouth bass bite has been slow to fair along the south shorelines on reaction baits, plastics, and nightcrawlers. The bluegill bite has been very slow.

There have been two 600-pound county trout plants so far, one last week and one three weeks ago. Overall, the trout bite remains slow with only a few reported from the east end and along the south side of Ramp No. 2. Stewart Bungert, French Valley, had three trout to 2-8 on inflated nightcrawlers. Stripers have improved a little over last week with the bigger fish working the trout, and the smaller fish concentrated in the coves along the south show and showing on plastics and swimbaits. Carlton Merriweather, Oceanside, had stripes at 3-8 and six pounds off the south shore on swimbaits. The catfish action has also been slow to fair at the buoy line, inlet, Ramp No. 2, and Catfish Alley on chicken liver and mackerel. The largemouth bass bite slowed down, but some fish are still showing along the south shorelines on reaction baits and plastics. Lots of two-pound class fish. The bluegill bite has been very slow.
