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
