The trout fishing has been spotty with the action gradually moving westward toward deeper water. The effects of the weekends rains remain to be seen. The largest trout of the past week belonged to Linda Gibbons of Valley Center and weighed 10.70#s. It was caught on a nightcrawler in Boat Dock Cove.
Crappie are being caught in small numbers at various locations throughout the lake. The largest so far belongs to Paul Eddo of Escondido and weighed 2.45#s. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught on mini-jigs or live golden shiners.
The bass bite has improved considerably. The bass are in pre-spawn mode with the smaller males preparing their nests. The largest bass of the past week belonged to Mike Pittman of Vista and weighed 6.70#s it was caught and released in Boat Dock Cove where it struck a powerworm. The bass are most likely to hit on crawdads or dark colored plastics
