The water has been flowing into the lake at the inlet with good volume in recent days. This has triggered a pretty decent striper bite along the buoy line and at the dam. Most action on cut baits like sardines or blood worms, but also some fish for fly trollers, anglers tossing swim baits, or even topwater early and late in the day. Also a fair number of stripers showing off main lake points and around the marina with fish to 10 pounds reported this week. The catfish bite has also been very good off the marina docks, at the dam, and in Cleghorn. The best action has been on anchovies, sardines, and glow-nightcrawlers. Lot of two to three-pound fish and some bigger. The bluegill bite has been pretty good over the past week off the marina rocks and at the dam. Most are hand-sized and showing on meal works or small jigs tipped with Crappie Nibbles. The largemouth bite is improving with cooler evening and showing on small cranks and plastics, especially in Miller Canyon. Trout are mostly slow, but a few are showing for persistent bait anglers tossing PowerBait or inflated nightcrawlers in Cleghorn or Miller canyons. Anglers should be aware of health advisories for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin. Here’s the direct link to a PDF brochure explaining consumption recommendations: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/fish/so_cal/pdf_zip/081013KioskadvySilverwood.pdf. Dock fishing is allowed for $3 for adults, $2 for kids and seniors. Private boats must be inspected for zebra and quagga mussels. Boats with wet lower units will be turned away. Boats inspected and tagged at Diamond Valley and Perris will be allowed at Silverwood. The park is open seven days a week.

The catfish bite has been very good off the marina docks, at the dam, and in Cleghorn. The best action has been on anchovies, sardines, and glow-nightcrawlers. Lot of two to three-pound fish and some bigger. Lynne McCormick, Lancaster, had an eight-pound catfish on chicken liver from Chemise. Jonathan Dewey, Apple Valley, had a five-pound striper and a couple of 2 1/2-pound stripers on anchovies off the marina docks. Toni Spinarte, Chula Vista, had a three-pound striper to top off her 12-pound stringer of stripers and bluegill. The striper have been good on the same baits and same located as the catfish, but most are under three pounds. The bluegill bite has been pretty good over the past week off the marina rocks and at the dam. Most are hand-sized and showing on meal works or small jigs tipped with Crappie Nibbles. The largemouth bite is improving with cooler evening and showing on small cranks and plastics, especially in Miller Canyon.

Bluestone treatment two weeks ago, but the catfish, striper, and largemouth bass bite have all been fair. Stripers and catfish are best in Cleghorn on sardines, lug worms, and even nightcrawlers. The dam and around the marina dock and rocks are also OK for stripers. Tim Channing, San Bernardino, had four stripers to three pounds fishing sardines off the dock. The catfish are also showing in Miller and Cleghorn canyons and most of the coves on both sides of the dam. Jeff Williams, Hesperia, had a six-pound catfish on a nightcrawler off the dock. Trout are slow with warm surface water temperatures. Largemouth are slow to fair with some topwater early and late and then plastics the rest of the time. Ronald Wagner, Upland, landed a 28-pound carp off the dock on a nightcrawler. No panfish reports. Anglers should be aware of health advisories for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin.
