The trout bite has remained very good on one to 1 1/2-pound rainbows with a few bigger. Trolling has been excellent from the Observatory to Logonita Point and from the Rock Wall to the Zebra Room. Most anglers are using two to four colors of leadcore with a copper chicken wing-colored Needlefish, a red and gold Thomas Bouyant, Dick Nite spoons in the same colors, or a small Rapala. The shore action is very good at the dam and at the red house, but the whole north shore has been pretty productive. Rich and Matt Chavez, both Orange County, had limits of rainbows to two pounds trolling with guide Curt Dills. The warm days have also brought up a lot of bass, both smallmouths and largemouths. They have been best on on small plastics. The marinas and public boat launches are all open as of April 1, and the Jim Hall Memorial Trout Classic will be held May 17-18 (info by calling 909-585-4007).

Trout fishing is off the hook right now. Cold temps combined with high oxygen levels has the Trout moving all over the lake. Shore anglers are catching them on the West end of the lake down by the Dam, Windy Point, Juniper Point and the East launch ramp. Fishing early morning or evening hours is the best time for catching them. Powerbait and Nightcrawlers on a 3 foot leader off the bottom is working good. The colors are salmon egg peach and garlic yellow. Inflated night crawlers keep them from sitting off the bottom. Bass are hunkering down still but structure is producing some Smallmouth Bass. Catfish is slow but Bullheads continue to bite on NIghtcrawlers and Mackerel. Trolling is working well by the Solar Observatory and up the centerline of the lake.
