The striper bite really surged on this past week with fair to good action on sardines fished off the marina docks, at the dam, and the main lake points in deep water. Most of the stripers are 1-8 to three pounds. Tom Hill, Orange County, had 10 stripers to two pounds on sardines at the dam. Fishing off the marina docks, Franklin White, Oak Hills, landed seven stripers to two pounds, while Javier Dominguez, Apple Valley, had a pair to stripers to three pounds. Both were using sardines. The trout bite has remained fair off the marina rocks and into both Cleghorn and Miller canyons on small jigs, spoons, and PowerBait. Most are pounders, but some bigger. DFW plants two and four weeks ago. Other species are very slow. Anglers should be aware of health warnings for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin. Here’s the direct link to a PDF brochure explaining consumption recommendations: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/fish/so_cal/pdf_zip/081013KioskadvySilverwood.pdf. Dock fishing is allowed for $3 for adults, $2 for kids and seniors. Private boats must be inspected for zebra and quagga mussels. Boats with wet lower units will be turned away. Boats inspected and tagged at Diamond Valley and Perris will be allowed at Silverwood. The park is open seven days a week.

SILVERWOOD: Overall, slowish fishing, but the striper bite has come back on a little this past week for anglers fishing the marina docks or deep water in the main body of the lake on the points. Cut baits have been the best bet, but some also on nightcrawlers. Angel Dominguez, Fontana, had three stripers to three pounds on nightcrawlers off the marina docks. Mingyong Huang, Eastvale, had two stripers in the 1-8 range, also on nightcrawlers off the marina docks. Fly trollers also getting a few stripers. The trout bite has been slow even after the DFW plant last week. Other species are very slow, but Robert Manson, Orange County, had two largemouth to four pounds at the dam on plastics. Anglers should be aware of health warnings for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin.
