SCV Fishing Report April 17th: Local Lakes And Saltwater Report
It's time for the KHTS fishing report:
1) Castaic Lake.... The big news here is the wide open action for spawning largemouth bass! The bass are stacking up in the shallow water all over the lake. Catch and release is encouraged.... For catfish, try Kong Island or the deep water off the Buoy Line. Try the West Ramp for a chance at catching some trout.
2) Pyramid Lake....Bass galore! Largemouth, smallmouth and black bass are all moving into the shallow water to spawn, and they are biting! Striped bass fishin has also improved with better weather; they're chasing the bait schools. For trout, try the Dam or Spanish Point. If you want catfish, try fishing the coves.|
3) Lake Piru....The bluegill and redear are beginning to bite here. But, the crappie fishing has been outstanding! The bass bite continued to be good in the shallow water, when weather permitted.
4) Lake Cachuma....The Trout Derby this past weekend saw many limits and near limits of trout for anglers! Also, the largemouth bass bite is pretty much wide open in the shallows all over the lake.
