Dixon Lake Report
by Ranger Jim Dayberry
Trout fishing was
up and down this week. The lake has been turning out good numbers of trout one
day, then very slow the next. The winds really played with the bite as well.
Night crawler, Power Bait and Power Worms have been the top baits this week.
The Buoy Line has also been producing fair numbers of trout. Crappie jigs have
also been working fairly well. The next stocking will be on Dec. 23, 2004.
The bass fishing
slacked off this week. No bass reported.
With the water cooling it would likely be wise to fish deeper, say in 25-40
feet of water, with a slow retrieve.
Although, I saw quite a few 2-3 pounders up in
the shallows on the north shore of the lake this week in 5-15 feet of water.
The catfish bite
was slow last week. The real problem is that very few people are targeting the
catfish. They are in here it is just that no one is fishing for them.
Lake Wohlford Report
By Ranger Arthur Bullard
On December 18th
Trout season began at Lake Wohlford. The Lake is open seven
days a week, except on Christmas Day the park will be closed. Top baits are expected to be nightcrawlers, power bait, power worms, and small flashy
spinners. 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 very favorable
for this season's opening weekend. Mic Miranda of Rincon, caught a 5#5 Rainbow Trout on a Thomas Bouyant lure. Reynel Conteras Sr. of Escondido, caught a 4# 0
Rainbow trout on a inflated nightcrawler at Boatdock Cove. Reynel Conteras Jr.(age 11) of Escondido, caught a 3#2
Rainbow Trout at Boatdock Cove. Catfish action is still good, hitting on
chicken liver and cut mackerel.
