The trout, striper, and catfish bites have all been good over the past week. The catfish bite has been best early and late in the day at the dam and in most of the deeper coves and bays on chicken liver, sardines, lug worms, and nightcrawlers with fish running from three to eight pounds. Sam Moore, Hesperia, had two catfish to four pounds on chicken liver. The striper bite fair to good on drifted cut baits like sardines, nightcrawlers, blood worms, or lug worms, in the bigger coves and main lake points. Trolling is also a good bet. Tanner Finn, Rancho Cucamonga, caught 10 stripers to three pounds trolling white flies. The trout bite is good on small trout plastics, small jigs, or PowerBait in Cleghorn and Miller canyons, through the main channel, and even at the dam. The bluegill and largemouth bass bites have all been pretty fair. Bass are still schooling and chasing bait in less than 15 feet of water and drop-shot plastics are best. Bluegill have moved shallow and are mostly showing in less than 10 feet of water. Anglers should be aware of health warnings 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 heat slowed the striper and trout bites this past week, but the catfish bite has stayed fair to good with the best bite off the dam and in most of the deeper coves and bays on chicken liver, sardines, lug worms, and nightcrawlers with fish running from three to eight pounds. Kyle Smart, Garden Grove, had a 12-pound catfish on a nightcrawler while fishing near the dam. Francisco Mena, Los Angeles, had a pair of cats to six pounds fishing sardines off the dock. The striper bite is still fair for anglers trolling white flies or drifting cut baits like sardines, blood worms, or lug worms, in the bigger coves and main lake points. Bill Martinez, Murrieta Hot Springs, had six stripers to two pounds on sardine and lug worms off the marina docks. The trout bite remains fair on small trout plastics, small jigs, or PowerBait in Cleghorn and Miller canyons, through the main channel, and even at the dam. The fish are just in deeper water, and trolling will probably replace shore fishing for the rainbows in the coming weeks. The bluegill and largemouth bass bites have all been pretty fair as the lake warms. Bass are still schooling and chasing bait in less than 15 feet of water and drop-shot plastics are best. Bluegill have moved shallow and are mostly showing in less than 10 feet of water. Anglers should be aware of health warnings for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin.
