32,500lbs of 'Tail walker' rainbow trout have been trucked in from Bridgeport Nebraska in the past 13 weeks!
2,000lbs of 'Tail walkers' will be stocked on Wednesday March 4th.
Another awesome week of trout fishing. Most fisherman catching their 5 fish limits in 4 hours or less! Large schools of trout have been holding in front of the concession building by the bubble holes and in the flats. Shoreline fishing has been excellent in all zones. Trout are chewing on any colored power bait, white, pink and green mouse tails, inflated night crawlers dipped in 'bite on' garlic scent. Fly fisherman continue to enjoy a much improved midge bite with black/red zebra midges and blood midges fished 8" off the bottom.
Another week of impressive numbers of BIG trout caught last week. Top honors goes to Gary Herrera of Whittier with an 11lb 10oz tailwalker caught on garlic power bait in zone 1. Joe Picca of Santa Ana weighed in an 11lb trout soaking chartreuse power bait in zone 3. Steven Avalon of Long Beach caught a 10lb trout on chartreuse power bait off a boat at the big island. Lurline Ikeda of Gardena weighed in a 9lb 04oz trout that she caught using salmon egg peach power bait in zone 3. Tim Roberts of Garden Grove caught an 8lb 04oz trout while working a pink/white mouse tail in zone 2. Rudy Gonzalez of Parris weighed in a 7lb 10oz tail walker caught on garlic power bait in zone 1. Steve Sugita of La Habra caught a 7lb 08oz trout working an orange/white mouse tail in zone 2. Andrew Rodriguez of Huntington Beach caught a 6lb 08oz tailwalker soaking an inflated night crawler in zone 3. Robbie Serreira of San Pedro weighed a 6lb trout that was caught on an inflated night crawler at the launch ramp.
Cooler weather is expected this week, which means this week's stocking of fish will be on the chew!
