The smallmouth bite has been fair to good for anglers fishing main lake points with rip baits and cranks. Largemouth have been slower. Some bass anglers have been dipping live shad in Johnson and Cachuma bays and doing very well on the live bait. The catfish bite has been slow to fair but still a decent bet. Most of the fish reported were under three pounds and came from Cachuma and Johnson bays on fly-lined chucks of mackerel or nightcrawlers in eight to 15 feet of water. Crappie, bluegill, and trout all very slow. The carp bowfishing improved this past week with large fish showing along the bank between Clark Canyon and Johnson’s Bay in the late afternoon. Carp bowfishing permits are available at the entrance gate. Private boats must be inspected for quagga mussels and face a 10-day dry dock requirement before being allowed to launch. For quagga mussel and the boat launching information, log on at http://www.sbparks.org/DOCS/Cachuma.html. The marina is open with rental boats available. The boat launch remains open, but boats must get a quagga mussel inspection. Information: 805-688-4040.

There bass bite remains fair with the fish in deeper water most of the day and showing on plastics and jigs fishing in 12 to 20 feet of water, but the topwater action at first and last light has also been decent on frogs, buzz baits, and poppers. Also some spinnerbait and jerk bait fish in the mornings when schools of shad are near-surface and the bass are keying on them. A few redear and bluegill continue to show in 12 to 20 feet, mostly on nightcrawler pieces fished on the bottom. 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
