Dixon Lake Report
by Ranger Rich Studink
The trout action has held up well over the weeks with the best baits being rainbow and green power bait, night crawlers and small gold Kast Masters proving best. The Buoy line and trout cove areas have been seeing the best action in the deeper parts of the lake. Most anglers are reporting average size trout from Trout Cove and other areas with some fish in the 3-4 pound range. Try trolling with lures if the action is slower during the afternoon. The last stock was planted January 9th with 1200 lbs of rainbow trout. Dixon will have planted another 1200 lbs of rainbows this week.
The catfish bite has slowed down to a crawl this last week. The catfish are hitting on cut mackerel and night crawlers. The "BEST" action is on the shoreline at the N.E. corner of Whisker Bay and the Buoy line. Also, try fishing in the Jack Creek Cove area next to pier # 3. With the recent rains, this just might turn on the bite again.
With the colder water temperatures upon us, the bass action is very slow. No bass have been reported this week.
The New Year has arrived and so has the time to purchase the new 2008 California state fishing licenses. Dixon Lake concession has in stock annual (1 YEAR) licenses, and 1 or 2 day licenses for sale.
A second rod stamp is also available for those who want to fish with two fishing rods.
