     DIAMOND VALLEY: The bass bite is still pretty good but the fish are mostly in a post-spawn mode but still shallow in five to 15 feet of water along structure or suspended, mostly on the points. Swim baits, Senkos, plastic worms are all good baits. Andy Acevedo, Murrieta, caught a 7-5 bass on a Lunker Plunker. The striper bite is fair and improving with more fish from three to six pounds this week along west dam and shoreline fishing areas on swimbaits and sardines. Lawrence Snell, Perris, caught a 9-4 striper on a nightcrawler at the east dam. Jonathan Williams, Hemet, landed an 8-11 on a swimbait off shore. Trout have been fair to good after and a Mt. Lassen plant was slated for Tuesday this week and DFW trout (including browns) went in last week. Best action on Roostertails, Kastmasters, and inflated nightcrawlers. Mike Kelly, Valley Center, landed a 5-15 rainbow on a plastic worm. Panfish remain good with fish to two pounds reported at the dams and shoreline fishing areas on meal worms, wax worms, nightcrawlers, and small jigs. Few catfish reports. The launch ramp official closed Wednesday this week due to low water levels. Rental boats will remain available through the marina. Boats inspected and tagged “quagga free” at Diamond Valley are also allowed on Perris and Silverwood. For general lake and launch information, call 800-590-LAKE.

     DIAMOND VALLEY: A new lake record redear was caught here early this week when Jesse Mena, Hemet, landed a 4.72-pounder fishing a nightcrawler. The bluegill and redear have been fair to good with a lot of fish showing along the dams and from the shoreline fishing area on meal worms, wax worms, nightcrawlers, and small jigs. The bass bite is good to excellent with the fish all over the shallows in mid-spawn. Plastics, swimbaits, and jerk baits fished along the shorelines or dam in less than 10 feet of water are getting the most fish. Byron Hirata, Hacienda Heights, caught an 8.31-pound largemouth on a Senko off the west dam. Stripers are fair with most of the fish running five to 10 pounds and showing on swimbaits or sardines in the west dam area. Also some fish after trout plants on big swimbaits. Trout were planted Tuesday (1,500 pounds of Mt. Lassen rainbows) this week and the bite has been good around the launch ramp for three to seven pound fish on PowerBait, small jigs, and Roostertails. Few catfish reports. The launch ramp will close April 15 due to low water levels. Rental boats will remain available through the marina. Boats inspected and tagged “quagga free” at Diamond Valley are also allowed on Perris and Silverwood. For general lake and launch information, call 800-590-LAKE.
