Castaic Lake Fishing Report – 08/23/2020

This report was made possible by Jim Taibi's 661Fishing.com Guide Service.  Visit his website here and catch more fish.

 

Since the lake has been closed since August 12th, this fish report is a fire update instead.

The “Lake” fire is about 55% contained and fire crews are not expecting full containment until just before Labor Day weekend. 

Both the upper and lower lakes remains closed as the numerous fire crews are using the swim beaches and parking lots as a base camp.

Video of fire just starting as we were fishing in Elizabeth Canyon:

Water fluctuations and high winds this past week have the baitfish on the move from shallow to deep and back again. Fishing live Shad and Silverside minnows has helped bridge the gap on the ever-changing Bass movements for my clients. The baitfish are either on the bank or out in the sticks and bushes in the middle of the coves and some main lake shorelines. The “Wolf packs” of a few to many quality Castaic Largemouth continue to roam these areas and can be found from two to thirty feet deep on any given day. Casting flutter spoons and Kastmasters thru the suspended bait schools is a good technique to employ to find the groups of bait chasers. Otherwise the usual finesse plastics will get grabs when the biters come thru.

Bass fishing remains steady on one to four pound fish. The water has come down five feet in the past week resulting in the Shad pulling out of the backs of the coves as the rocks that were covered in their food source, algae and moss, were left high and dry with the receeding water.
