SILVERWOOD: Warm weather is kicking the action into gear -- or maybe there are just more anglers fishing. The striper bite has been good for anglers trolling flies or tossing swimbaits with dam-inlet area, the mouth of Cleghorn and Miller canyons, and the main lake points all producing fish to five pounds. Most are smaller, from one to two pounds. Don Sunard, Pinon Hills, had three stripers to three pounds on lug worms in Cleghorn. The trout also have been good after a DFW plant last week and another plant is slated for next week. The trout are best in Cleghorn and Sawpit areas, with PowerBait, inflated nightcrawlers, and small trout plastics all producing fish. A limit of five rainbows up to 1-8 was posted by Steve Jones, Victorville, fishing nightcrawlers in Cleghorn. A few catfish showing, but this bite is mostly slow. Mark Swanson, Hesperia, landed a five-pound cat on worms in Sawpit. No largemouth or 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. 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.

 Still mostly slow fishing, but a few catfish and stripers are showing again, and the trout action is fair after a DFW plant last Tuesday. The catfish have been best on shrimp, while the stripers are best on lug worms or trolled flies. Brandon Carter, Pinon Hills, had four catfish to six pounds on shrimp in the Sawpit area. Kanov Awafa, Victorville, landed a 3-8 striper on a lug worm off the dock. Trout are showing on PowerBait, small jigs, and Power Mice in Miller and Cleghorn canyons. Ryan Fonti, Apple Valley, had three rainbows on PowerBait. No largemouth or 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.

low overall fishing, mostly due to weather. The trout bite is pretty fair, but getting little pressure. There was a DFW plant last week and a double plant three weeks ago. Best areas have been around the marina and in Miller Canyon. Jim Miller, Apple Valley, had a one-pound rainbow on a lug worm while fishing for stripers. A few stripers have been reported around the marina and in the Twin Cove area. No largemouth or panfish reports.
