The bass bite remains consistent! Anglers are catching bass between 2-4 pounds. The bass are in the 15-30 ft range. Drop shotting purple, pink and brown colored plastics works best for catching bass. Senko’s and night crawlers are also working great! Tawny of San Jacinto caught a bass using a senko off shoreline!
Anglers are catching stripers between 5-6 pounds! The best time to fish for striper is the week of a trout stock. When shad and trout are breaking the surface, it’s best to use lures that mimic them for top water boils.
There were few reports of catfish caught this week between 4-5 pounds. Stink bait and cut bait work best for catfish.

Anglers are catching trout between 3-6 pounds! Powerbait, night crawlers and mini jigs work best for trout. Kyle Warren of Murrieta caught a 6 pound trout using a white streamer on a fly rod off shoreline.
