    Water Temp: 73

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: Lake was down about 6-8 feet. Tons of bait fish everywhere (silversides), but the fishing was slow. Fish were in the 1 to 1 1/2 pound range (all LMB's no SMB's). Limited topwater early, with cranks and spinnerbaits working on the sides and in the backs of wind-blown coves. With fall in the air, the reaction bait bite should kick into high gear within the next few weeks.

    Tips: Topwater = Sammys & Splash-its (on busting fish),
    Cranks = LV-500 (chartreuse shad),
    Spinnerbaits = Silverside colored Revenge 1/2oz Deep Runner.
    Worms = 4 1/2 inch Hologram Shad Roboworm (Dropshotted).

    Tips: Our better fish were on the rock walls. Throw tight and bring it back really slowly. You don't need to shake it much.

    Report: Was one of the first boats on the water since the lake is now open, opened July 2. While my buddy and i were wating in line we already saw some striper boils! My buddy and i first started out by fishing the sandy beaches and my first cast i caught a real small largemouth, next cast another small largemouth( i was using a zara spook puppy). So we went down the bank some more and we got one nice largemouth on a chrome black jointed rapala that my buddy was using. We hit this one side of this rip rap bank and the largemouths were all over my topwater, it was giving me bass fever!! Then right when i landed a nice bass my buddy hooked up with a 10 pound striper right at the boat and it snapped the line. After that there was a school of stripers and we started hooking up with them on zara spooks. After that fast and furious action the bite slowed down tremendously. So our best bet was to find banks with as less weeds as possible, and if we found alot of weeds, one of us would fish the inside edge and one would fish the outside edge, and both of us were using cranks. At the end of the day we ended up catching over 20 bass, but still the bite wasent as good as we thought it would be.
    City: Castaic

    Tips: There is alot of weeds!!! For your best luck fish rocky banks protected from the wind weeds, and jet skiers! Belive me this is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack! But take the time to do that and the reward will be awesome. And when fishing weed lines in the morning fish the inside of them and in the afternoon fish the outside of them with cranks.
