DIXON LAKE

Dixon Lake is a small lake located in San Diego County near the city of Escondido. You can get there by taking the 15 Freeway to El Norte Pkwy. Exit to La Honda Dr. then make a left and follow the residential road up to the lake entrance. Entrance fee last time I was there was $5 for Adults $3 for kids and you pay per pound for what you catch. You can rent Rowboats of Motorboats for like $15, but the fishing is good from the shore line. This lake has a great Largemouth Bass population and some real chunkers have been caught here, the biggest 21 pounds 11 ounces in May of 2003. The lake is stocked with a ton of Rainbows in the Winter and Channel Cats in the Summer, and the Sunfish get big (so bring your poppers).

    I’ve seen a few 10+ Pound Largmouth come out of this lake over the years.
