Went fishing at Jenks Lake on 04/17/16.  We were very disappointed.  The lake was lower since last year, the vegetation along the shore was dead and you could see the level where the water used to be.  The Biggest disappointment was listening to the men as they floated by saying how they had snuck into the lake and fished all winter.  There was no fish of any descent size to mention.  we caught 3 very small bass.  There were no trout.  if the poachers had left things alone there would have been fish for those of use who obeyed the closed signs.  There had been no stocking done before opening day.  Something needs to be done about this.  We will not be going back to Jenks Lake.

     JENKS LAKE REGION: Jenks Lake is currently closed due to the Lake Fire burning in the San Bernardino Mountains. Access to both the South Fork and the main Santa Ana River is also currently closed. All three waters were supposed to be planted last week, but may not have received fish because of the fire. Highway 38 could open for the weekend, but may not. Anglers should check with the Mill Creek Ranger Station at 909-382-2881 before heading up the mountain.
