     LAKE ISABELLA: Slow overall fishing. Wind and wildly changing weather conditions have slowed all the bites to nothing here. Catfish are the best bet with a fair number showing on clams, minnows, and nightcrawlers. Also still a few trout being landed, but the bass and bluegill bites slowed way down. Crappie died. DFW trout plant last week. For fishing information: Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657 or www.bobsbaitbucket.com or North Fork Marina at 760-376-1812.

     LAKE ISABELLA: The crappie bite remained spotty over the weekend with just a few fish showing. The few fish being landed are being caught in the South Fork Arm of the lake around flooded trees on small minnows or crappie tube jigs tipped with Crappie Nibbles. The few fish reported this past week have been in the 1-8 to two-pound range. The trout action moved to center stage this past week after big plants for the three-day 26th Annual Isabella Lake Fishing Derby held this past weekend. The derby was won by David Aguilar, Bakersfield, with a 23 1/2-inch rainbow trout. Aguilar won $10,000 for his first-place fish ($5,000 extra because he was wearing the official tee-shirt). The second-longest fish and winner of $4,000 went to Jon VanRensselaer, Kernville, with a 21 7/8-inch rainbow. Travis Watkins, Lake Isabella, won the $3,000 third place with a 21 1/4-inch rainbow, while Justin June, Weldon, was fourth and a $2,000 winner with his 20 5/8-inch rainbow. Bill Wiebe, Bakersfield, was fifth with a 20-inch rainbow that won him $1,000. Wiebe also had one of the four fish tied for final three spots, at 19 inches, winning an additional $450 for that catch. Sixth place went to Latisha Quinn, Lake Isabella, with a 19 3/4-inch rainbow that won $900, while seventh went to Jasmine Vidal, Bakersfield, with a 19 3/8-incher that won her $800. The three anglers tied with Wiebe with 19-inch rainbows were Robert Troller, Lake Isabella, Jerry Towery Jr., Bakersfield, and Martin Long, Granada Hills. All won $450. The trout bite remains pretty fair on floating dough baits, small trout lures, and inflated nightcrawlers. There is also a slow to fair bite on bluegill to a pound or better, and the catfish bite remains fair to good, especially at Engineer’s Point. The largemouth are being neglected, but a few are being caught as they start to move shallow for the spawn.
