The largemouth bass bite has broken wide open with fish flooding into the shallows for the spawn. The fish are showing all around the lake and are already fanning out beds. The best action has been on plastics and jigs in less than eight feet of water. Channel Sanchez, Temecula, had a pair of bass that weighed a total of 8.7 pounds. Final county trout plant of the season is this week, and there were county fish delivered two and four weeks ago. DFW trout went in last week and three weeks ago. The bluegill bite also started to improve, but most of the fish remain in deeper water with the buoy line area, launch ramp No. 2, and across from the marina the best spots. Small jigs or wax worms have been top baits. Overall, the trout bite has been fair to good with the best action at Launch Ramp No. 2 and adjacent coves and east end shoreline areas. Best bite has been on PowerBait inflated nightcrawlers with garlic scent, small tube jigs, and trout Power Worms. The striper bite is also fair to good at the inlet, mid-lake, and Ramp 2 areas. Swimbaits and cut baits are both getting fish, but jigging spoons and even some topwater baits have produced. The catfish action has slow with only a few fish showing in the east end, at the buoy line, inlet, and mid-lake. Most are being caught on cut baits with garlic shrimp, chicken liver, and mackerel the best bets. Lake Skinner is currently 85 percent of capacity.

County trout plants this week, two and four weeks ago and DFW trout went in last week and three weeks ago. Overall, the trout bite has been pretty fair with the best action at Launch Ramp No. 2 and adjacent coves and shoreline areas. Best bite has been on salmon or rainbow PowerBait inflated nightcrawlers with garlic scent, small tube jigs, and trout Power Worms. Greg Cook, Elsinore, had five trout with a total stringer weight of 4.1 pounds fishing nightcrawlers near Ramp No. 2. The striper bite is also fair to good at the inlet, mid-lake, and Ramp 2 areas. Swimbaits and cut baits are both getting fish, but jigging spoons and even some topwater baits have produced. Robert Patterson, Chino Hills, had a pair of stripers totaling 6.6 pounds fishing shad at the buoy line.The catfish action has slow with only a few fish showing in the east end, at the buoy line, inlet, and mid-lake. Most are being caught on cut baits with garlic shrimp, chicken liver, and mackerel the best bets. The largemouth bass bite has been fair and picking up rapidly with the warm weather, especially along the south shoreline areas on jigs, plastics, and nightcrawlers. Many fish are starting to move up. The bluegill bite also started to improve, but most of the fish remain in deeper water with the buoy line area the best bet.
