The Fishing Line December 23, 2004



Dixon Lake Report

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.
