9,000lbs of rainbow trout (Nebraska Tail walkers) have been stocked in our gorgeous 44 acre lake the first 4 weeks of trout season.
3,000lbs of Nebraska rainbow trout will be stocked on Monday December 22, 2014 with extra trophy trout for the Christmas Holidays!
OPEN FOR FISHING ON CHRISTMAS DAY!
Last week the lake was hit by two strong storms bringing lots of rain and wind. Shoreline has been muddy all week, water visibility is less than 3" but the trout fishing has been the best we have seen in years! Shore fishermen are catching 5 fish limits in 2 hours or less! Both zone 1 and 2 located in front of the big island and all the way to the launch ramp have been wide open all week. The only complaint has been that we allow only 2 permits per angler per day and that limits are being caught too fast!
Boats have been taking a lot of trout fishing in front of the boat dock and around the bubble holes in deeper water. Float tubers reporting a good jig and mouse tail bite in the flats closer to the shoreline. Fishermen using scent are getting the most bites. Fly fishing midges has been slow due to all the rain. Good news is that it looks like clear weather for the next 7 days, which means better water conditions and an improved midge bite. Rain has also washed out the blue/green algae that the lake had been dealing with all month.
Big trout of the week was caught by Jake Youngblut of Irvine with an 8lb 09oz tail walker that was caught soaking chart. power bait in zone 2 (shoreline). Anthony Najem of Mission Viejo weighed in a 8lb 08oz trout soaking garlic power bait in zone 1 by the tree. Ken Golbel of Laguna topped of his double limit with a 8lb trout that hit rainbow power bait in zone 1 by the tree. Rich Vanaria of Laguna Hills caught two trophy trout that both weighed 7lb 08oz both were caught in zone 1 by the tree on garlic power bait. Jim Bain of Oxnard topped of his 5 fish limit with a 7lb and a 6lb rainbow trout using a trout jig at the launch ramp. Another 9 trophy trout in the 5lb to 6lb class were also reported last week. Trout are still averaging 2lb to 3lbs in size!
