1. The rockfish action from Oxnard to Morro Bay has just been phenomenal, with limit-style fishing most days on most boat, even the short half-day trips. There have been lots of reds and bocaccio in the rockfish limits, and when you add in the good scores on whitefish, and a smattering of sheephead and lingcod, these have been top notch trips. For an update on this bite, check the daily scores on 976-TUNA.com or call one of the landings in the region.

2. The Pyramid Lake striper bite stays in the top picks this week. Lots of limits of fish around two pounds with some to six or seven pounds, and even the occasional bigger fish. The best bite has been on cut baits and lug worms, and there are also a lot of catfish showing in this bite. For an update on this action, check with the Emigrant Landing entrance booth at 661-295-7155 or Tackle Express at 661-251-8700.

3. There were three plants of brown trout this past week at Silverwood Lake, and the action on the browns and rainbows has been very good with a lot of limits reported. The trout have been running up to 1-8 and have been showing on spinners, small spoons, or trout jigs. For an update on this action, check with the marina staff at 760-389-2299.
