    Water Temp: Who knows?

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: Got shutout again! Nothing to report here. What I am hoping to find is a local pro who would be willing to teach me how to catch these damn Lake Poway (LP) trout. Learning to catch the bass would be nice, too. I figure I first need a good grounding in the fundamentals (what is a good reel/pole/line, setting up my rig (dep on conditions), casting and reeling in, etc). Emails/tips welcome, too!
    City: La Jolla

    Tips: Renting a boat here is a waste. I've seen just as many fish (both trout and bass) caught by shore fisherman as I have by boats.

    Report: Went to Poway the other day and planned on trout fishing so all brought were some artificial trout lures because I dont like fishing bait. My friends convinced me to bring only one rod which was my trout micro. I really wanted to bring one of my bass setups but they convinced me not to, any way we went first thing in the morning and i caught three trout on mini jigs and roostertails. After the sun came out i went out on the fishin dock and i looked down in the water and see a teen sized bass just sitting on the bottom along with a couple other cruising two pounders. Boy was i mad i didnt bring my bass stuff. There were also a lot of bass chasing trout every where. There was one in hidden bay that cleared the water with a trout hanging in its mouth boy did i wish i had my swimbait stick with me.

    Tips: Never go trout fishing without a back up bass setup!!!!

    Report: My partner Brett Woodward and I caught eleven ish. One early crank ish o the spillway, one worm ish o the spillway, and the rest were sight ish. The water's real high and clear. The wind was nill, so sight ishing was the ticket. Saw lots o ish...there were some giants...absolute slobs...hanging around the boat dock and the pod o planted trout. The two ish we say had to have been in the high 'teens. They looked like tunas they were so round. Anyway, the ish we caught were healthy and judging by the ish we spooked and saw, Lake Poway is solid. The high water will make it a new lake when the grass grows up to the surace...Flippin, pitchin, roggin, rippin...In San Diego County!
    City: Irvine

    Tips: Sight ish...gitzitscranks...at-ree shadsworms...eight inch otay and choc.blue neon!The log boom is moved so you have to search or the "irst tank" rockpile. We didn't get bit o the darned thing. It's pretty killer to ish whole new areas o the lake! Good Luck
