The Fishing Line December 9, 2004



Dixon Lake Report

Dixon Lake Report


by Ranger Jim Dayberry


Trout fishing was better than expected this week. The lake has been hot. Limits are the norm and some guys are done in twenty minutes or less. Night crawler, Power Bait and Power Worms have been the top baits this week. Trout Cove was absolutely on FIRE!  The Buoy Line has also been producing fair numbers of trout. The spinners were not working as well as they have the past few weeks. Crappie jigs have also been working fairly well.


The bass fishing slacked off this week.  No bass reported.


The catfish bite was steady last week. Catfish were being caught out of Jack Creek Cove and at the Buoy Line by those targeting the whisker fish. The hot bait was chicken liver but mackerel was also working well.


Lake Wohlford Report

by Ranger Fred Costa


Lake Wohlford is open on Saturdays and Sundays only, until December 18th. 


On December 18th trout season begins at Wohlford and the lake will return to being open to the public 7 days a week, except for Christmas day when the park will be closed.  5,000 pounds of Trout will be stocked just prior to opening day of trout season!  So now is a good time to wind some new light line onto the old reel and collect your trout tackle!  Trout conditions are looking favorable this season. 


Catfish action is still good, hitting on chicken liver and cut mackerel.  The best Catfish area has been the very shallow weed beds at the East end of Lake Wohlford.


Crappie are still hitting near the South Shore Rock Pile.


Bass anglers have been catching and releasing a lot of mostly smaller sized catches in the morning before the sun breaks through and then again late in the afternoon. 


Robert Petroff of San Jacinto caught an 8#5 Bass on a L.A. Slider off Lusardi Point (released). Clement Miner of Escondido caught a 4#10 Bass on a Shad Rapala at the West Buoy Line (released).
