DIAMOND VALLEY: The bass bite has been very consistent for fish from two to five pounds. The best action has been in 15 to 30 feet of water on plastics, swim baits, and cranks. There are also still some fish up shallow, but the algae bloom seemed to move most fish out of the shallows. Stripers action really started to turn on in the past week to 10 days, especially for anglers trolling white flies. But some fish are also showing on boils of shad. Most of the stripers are running four to six pounds. Derek and Daniel Quinonez and Kenny Baldwin, all Riverside, had 18 stripers to six pounds on the white flies, while Kevin Deemer, Hemet, had 10 fish, also to six pounds and also on white flies. The final Mt. Lassen trout plant of the season went in two weeks ago, but a fair number of trout continue to show on small trout plastics and trout jigs. A few bluegill and redear are also starting to be caught with some to nearly two pounds reported, and more and more catfish are being reported each week. Boats inspected and tagged ìquagga freeî at Diamond Valley will also be allowed on Perris and Silverwood. For general lake and launch information, call 800-590-LAKE.

PERRIS: The largemouth bass are still showing in the shallows with the spawn winding down. Lots of one to four-pound fish in less than 10 feet of water on beds and some quality fish are also showing. Plastic worms and swimbaits have been the most productive. Ryan Rocha, Moreno Valley, had an 11.4-pound bass on a swimbait off Lots 11 and 12, while Kyle Wegener, Fountain Valley, landed five bass topped off by a 5.2-pounder, all on jerk baits. The bluegill and redear bite broke wide open this week with many anglers reporting 10 to 15 fish catches of fish to a pound or better fishing crickets and redworm (alone or tipping jigs) off the island, in the east end, and off the dam. Most of the action is in 12 to 18 feet of water. A few trout continue to show off lots 11 and 12 and lots 8 and 9, mostly on small spoons and spinners but a few on floating baits in deeper water. The DFW planted trout last week. There were also a few reports of catfish this past week. Lorenzo Martinez, Moreno Valley, had an 11.4-pound catfish off the east end of the island while fishing for bluegill with a nightcrawler. Private boats must be inspected for zebra and quagga mussels. Boats with wet lower units will be turned away. Boats inspected and tagged Silverwood or Diamond Valley will also be allowed at Perris. Information: marina 951-657-2179, state park 951-940-5600.

SKINNER: Overall good action with the stripers showing in good numbers in the inlet area on shad, white jigs, lug worms, and sardines. The largemouth bass are good in the shallows with a lot of males still guarding beds and the females starting to feed with even some top water. Water clear so sight fishing is still an option. The bluegill and redear bites are also pretty good in deeper water as these panfish start moving up for their spawn. Catfish really came on this week with a number of quality fish reported. Information: store 951-926-1505 or marina 951-926-8515.

ELSINORE: The catfish bite has been exceptional with a lot of good fish from six to 10 pounds, and a 13-pounder was the top reported this past week. Shad has been the best bait, but some are showing on cut mackerel and shrimp, too, but not near as many as on the shad. The crappie have been getting little fishing pressure with the fish staging in about eight feet of water and a few being landed by the anglers working for the slabs. The carp bite is slow but a few smaller fish are showing on dough bait. The largemouth bass are starting to take off with some fish to four pounds reported on plastics and reaction baits. There was also a report of a quality wiper (10-plus pounds) taken off the public beach late last week. Few bluegill reports.
