     LAKE ISABELLA: The catfish bite has been good to excellent in the South Fork arm of the lake with a lot of fish from two to six pounds with a couple of double digit fish reported in the past week. The best bait has been super meal worms (the 2 1/2- to three-inch supers) fished in conjunction with marshmallows or clams. Also some fish showing on anchovies or sardines. The crappie bite is slow, but an occasional catch of a few quality fish is still happening. Most are showing on small jigs and shiners fished around trees or other structure from float tubes or small boats. Off French Gulch Marina and at the dam have been the top spots. A few largemouth bass have been reported by anglers fishing topwater very early and then plastics, and this bite has been improving. Bluegill are fair to good on meal worms, wax worms, or red worms. For fishing information: Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657 or www.bobsbaitbucket.com or North Fork Marina at 760-376-1812.

 The catfish bite has been good to excellent in the South Fork arm of the lake with a lot of fish from two to six pounds with a couple of double digit fish reported in the past week. The best bait has been super meal worms (not the one-inch jumbos, but the 2 1/2- to three-inch supers), but clams, anchovies, and sardines are also a good bet. The bite bite remains sporadic, but a few catches of eight to 12 quality fish came in again this week. Most are showing on small jigs and shiners fished around trees or other structure from float tubes or small boats. Off French Gulch Marina and at the dam have been the top spots. A few largemouth bass have been reported by anglers fishing topwater very early and then plastics, and this bite has been improving. Bluegill are fair to good on meal worms, wax worms, or red worms.
