DFW trout plants last week and three weeks ago. The action on the rainbows has remained pretty fair and a few bigger fish from the Tailwalker plant in December continue to show. The best action has been in the marina area, across from the marina, and for trollers working off the mouth of the marina. Matt Purnell, Ventura, landed a three-pound rainbow. The bass bite has remained slow to fair with most of the fish on jigging spoons or ice jigs, but some are showing on plastics or nightcrawlers. Buddy Morton, Meiners Oaks, caught a six-pound bass on a Carolina-rigged plastic. The odd crappie to 2-8 is still showing on small jigs or slow-trolled trolled shad-like baits. Other species 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.

CASITAS: DFW trout slated to be planted this week, but trout have been fair even through the last plant was Dec. 16 when 2,500 pounds of Nebraska Tailwalkers were planted. The best action has been in the marina area, across from the marina, and for trollers working off the mouth of the marina. The largemouth bass have moved deep and there is a slow to fair bite on jigging spoons and ice jigs with a few on plastics. A few crappie to 2-8 are showing on small jigs or slow-trolled trolled shad-like baits. Other species 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.

CASITAS: Trout have been pretty good with the biggest fish in the past week in the four pound range. Most of the fish are 1 1/2 to three pounds. There was a 2,500-pound plant of Nebraska Tailwalkers last week, and DFW fish the week before that. The best bite has been on PowerBait, Yum, Kastmasters, and inflated nightcrawler doused with scent. There were a lot of limits through the weekend, but the fish have moved off shore and boat anglers are now doing better than shore anglers. The largemouth bass have moved deep and there is a slow to fair bite on jigging spoons and ice jigs with a few on plastics. A few crappie showing for trout anglers fishing small jigs. Other species 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.
