The bass are biting well especially early in the morning and late evening when you can find some shad and use them for bait, the weather is great get out and go fishing.

     CASITAS: The first trout plant in three years went in here last Friday when the DFW delivered 1,200 pounds of rainbows. The lake is also slated to get another load of state fish next week. Most of the trout were smaller, half-pound class fish. The bite was pretty good for the first day or two after the plant, but most of the fish have moved out of the water shoreline areas into deeper water but anglers fishing deeper water are still getting a few on PowerBait, inflated nightcrawlers, or small spinners and spoons. No trolling reports yet. Overall, the bite is just fair, but a little bit of everything is showing. The bass have slowed as the spawn winds down, and there is just fair action on drop-shot plastics, reaction baits, and even some topwater now early and late in the day. The live shad remain up and available for dip-netters, so the shad are also a good bet for the bass. Noah Skultety, Thousand Oaks, had a 9.2-pound bass on a live shad. The crappie bite has been fair with some flurries of good action, but the bite is almost exclusively on live shad. The fish are running from a half-pound up to over two pounds. One angler reported landing 17 crappie on shad Tuesday this week. The bluegill and redear are pretty fair, mostly on red worms and nightcrawlers, for shore line anglers. There was a 2.9-pound redear caught on an inflated nightcrawler from shore. Catfish remain very slow. Bowfishing is allowed here for carp, but only from a boat after 8 a.m. Lake staff must approve bows. Private boats must be inspected for quagga mussels and face a 35-day dry dock requirement before being allowed to launch. Information: 805-649-2043 or www.casitasboatrentals.com.
