The striper bite has been fair to good but most of the fish are small. The bite has been best at the dam, the main lake points, and around the marina, mostly on sardines or lugworms. Andy and Daniel Bartz, both Lake Arrowhead, had 20 stripers to two pounds fishing nightcrawlers off the docks. Sherry Newman, Phelan, had a five-pound striper and a 10-pound catfish on sardines off the dock. The catfish bite has been fair on the same baits being used for stripers. There have been very few trout and largemouth bass reports. Art Melendez and Maggie Reyes, both Hesperia, had several bass topped off by a four-pounder fishing nightcrawlers and cranks. The bluegill bite has been slow with few reports. 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 striper bite has been fair to good but most of the fish are small. The bite has been best at the dam, the main lake points, and around the marina, mostly on sardines or lugworms. Don Smith, Pinon Hills, landed eight stripers to two pounds off the marina docks on lugworms. Also fair action for catfish on chicken liver, lug worms, sardines, or anchovies around the marina and off the dam. Mark Abbott, Cresline, caught and released a 15-pound catfish off the marina docks on anchovies. There have been very few trout reports. The bluegill and largemouth bass bites have all been slow with few reports. 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.

The lake was reopened to body contact Tuesday this week after an algae bloom (toxic to humans) led to a two-week water-contact closure. The bloom didn’t affect fish much with a fair bite on small stripers under two pounds. Also fair action for catfish on chicken liver, lug worms, sardines, or anchovies around the marina and off the dam. There have been very few trout reports. The bluegill and largemouth bass bites have all been slow to fair with few reports. 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.
