Castaic Lake Fishing Report – 06/06/2020

Largemouth & Smallmouth Bass:

Good to excellent Bass fishing, a completely full lake, smaller crowds and decent weather were on tap for anglers this week. The bigger fish are showing in better numbers, especially with the big live Shad we’re using for bait. The finesse plastics bite is going strong as well. C3 Baits Shimmys fished on a Carolina Rig with light line, usually 6lb test, has been the top producer. Productive colors are the mainstays, Neptune Shad and Watermelon Candy. Green Pumpkin colored Ned rigs fished deeper on points and bluffs are producing lots of bites as well as connecting with the better grade of Smallmouth Bass. 

Striped Bass:

The smaller schools of fish are around yet sometimes hard to locate as they follow the Shad in and out of the bigger creek arms and coves. A few bigger fish are being caught on live Shad but remain elusive to most other techniques. Trolling with the fly-coring/Producer Fly technique is the best way to cover water and find the smaller one to two pound fish with the occasional bigger Striper showing up for those putting in the time. 

Castaic Afterbay:

Bass and Bluegill fishing is still going strong here with the Carolina rig, Ned rig and Senko catching most of the fish. Lighter line will get you more bites here as the water is clear. Bluegill are abundant and can be caught on meal worms or red worms fished under a bobber or as a trailer on a small mini jig.

Castaic Lake Fishing Report 06/13/2021

Not much change this week as water levels continue to fall. The quality Bass are holding a little deeper now, mostly on rocky main-lake points and bluffs in the fifteen to twenty foot depth zone. Dropshot rigs, Ned rigs and finesse Carolina rigs are all working with the C-rig appealing to the bigger fish. We are focused on areas that have a little wind blowing into them. Stay away from areas that have wake boat waves crashing into them. The Bass have a hard time adjusting their swim bladders to the rebounding waves and will suspend or leave the area completely. Netting Shad for bait remains difficult as the falling water is keeping them off the bank for now.

The C3 Baits/Carolina Rig combo is tough to beat as the weeds start to grow in around the swim beach area and Eastern shoreline. C3 Baits Shimmys and Jobus in Oxblood and Neptune Shad continue to get hammered on the inside and outside weed edges by quality Largemouth of all sizes, with the average fish being around two pounds.

Bass fishing remains solid for fish that are mostly in the pre-spawn stage. Fat and strong, willing to bite on virtually any finesse technique and any popular color. Rocky points and shoals leading into spawning areas continue to be our focus. We are mainly fishing wacky-rigged Senkos early and dropshot rigs once the sun gets high.
