     DIAMOND VALLEY: Very light fishing pressure, but the action has been pretty good for the few shore and rental boat anglers fishing for largemouth bass and panfish. The bulk of the bass action has been on reaction baits early and late in the day on the points and off the dams. Baby bass, bluegill, and shad-patterned cranks, swimbaits, and topwater have been getting the most fish. The bluegill have been best on crickets, wax worms, or meal worms fished with a light weight to get them on the bottom in six to 25 feet of water. Almost no one is fishing stripers, but the occasional angler trolling white flies at the dams is still getting a few fish from four to six pounds or smaller fish on cut baits. Kevin Deemer, Hemet, landed a 6.83-pound striper. The catfish bite is also neglected, with the best bite on nightcrawlers or cut baits in more of the shoreline fishing area. The launch ramp is closed due to low water levels, but rental boats will remain available through the marina. For general lake and launch information, call 800-590-LAKE.

     DIAMOND VALLEY: The bluegill and redear bite has been good in most of the shoreline fishing areas and for rental boat anglers. The fish are showing in four to 15 feet of water on nightcrawler pieces, red worms, meal worms, crickets, and small jigs tipped with a meal worm or other small bait. Most of the action is around structure. Hoyt Curtis, Hemet, landed a 2.46-pound redear from shore with a nightcrawler. The largemouth bass bite is fair with fish to five pounds reported in the past week. The best bite has been on Senkos, drop-shotted plastics, and nightcrawlers fished on the points and off the dams. Stripers slowed again with tough action caught near the dams on trolled white flies, swim baits, or shad-colored Flukes. Catfish fair to good on cut baits, but getting little pressure. The fish are running from two to six pounds on average. The launch ramp is closed due to low water levels, but rental boats will remain available through the marina.

Light fishing pressure with the boat ramp closed, but the bass bite has been fair for anglers fishing plastics in 20 to 30 feet of water off the points and along the dams. Also some good action early in the day on jerk baits. Most of the fish are one to two-pound class, but some fish to five pounds. The striped bass have improved with a fair number of fish showing at the two dams on swimbaits, trolled flies, and shad-colored Flukes. Catfish are getting little pressure, but the few anglers targeting the cats with cut baits and nightcrawlers are getting a decent number of 2-8 to five pound cats. Bluegill and redear are good, but most of the shallow fish are small, under three-quarter pounds, but a few bigger fish are showing from deeper water. Meal worms, wax worms, crickets, are all good baits, but small jigs are also getting fish. Makenna Liess, Redlands, landed a 2.06-pound redear. Rental boats will remain available through the marina.
