The catfish bite has been very good but getting light fishing pressure. The best action has been at both dams, around the islands, and in most of the coves. Stink baits, cut mackerel, sardines, or anchovies are the best baits, but nightcrawlers are also working. Tom Kaltendach, Hemet, had three catfish from 10 to 11-6 on shrimp. The largemouth bass bite is fair with mostly fish under three pounds showing from 30 to 40 feet of water on plastics with some action closer to the surface early and late on Senkos and bluegill-like cranks. Striper remain surprisingly slow with few reports. The redear and bluegill bites are pretty good with a lot of fish reported on nightcrawlers and small jigs tipped with mearl worms. The dams, rock quarry, and near Restroom No. 2 are the best spots. Boats inspected and tagged “quagga free” at Diamond Valley are also allowed on Perris and Silverwood.
