This trail is 5 miles to the end which has a very nice 50-60 foot waterfall, there are a lot of people once it starts getting warm, so go early if you are planning on fishing.

BIG BEAR LAKE

By , September 29, 2008 10:07 pm

Big Bear Lake is a man made Reservoir/Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains. It’s a decent sized lake at 22 miles of shoreline and 2,971  surface acres at water capacity, which sits at an elevation of about 6.750 feet . Close to home, but far away enough to feel like a vacation, fishing Big Bear is still a nice way to get away from it all. There is great Rainbow and Brown Trout Fishing in the Winter, though the Lake will start to freeze over if it gets cold enough. Also great Sunfish and Bass fishing in the Spring through Fall and  many species of Catfish in the lake from Channels to Bullhead of all varieties. In my opinion though, the best feature of Big Bear is the Carp Fishing in the flats end of the lake.  

SANTA ANITA CREEK

Santa Anita Creek is a great small body of water to fish for Rainbow Trout. I fish the waterfall dams along the creek they produce the most fish for me. Please remember to practice CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY!!! The creek does not get stocked ever so please release the fish so that future generations can enjoy this great resourse.

You will need a Forest Adventure Pass to park in the National Forest sections.

Practice Catch and Release Only, pick up trash if you see it, and respect this resource so that future generations can enjoy it!

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).

NEWPORT BACK BAY

Newport’s Back bay is a maze of estuary waters that you could literally spend a lifetime fishing. It offers so many opportunities from Surf and Float tubing to Kayaking and fishing from a boat. it also offers a diverse ecosystem of like Bass, Perch, Mullet, Sharks, Rays, Croaker, and many others. My best source of information on this area has and will always be His & Her Fly Shop owned and operated by Frank Selby. You won’t find a place with for information to give or people more willing to give it. It also helps that their in house “Master Fly Tier” Gracie can tie you up just about any pattern you can think of. Just let them know that Sean Fenner sent you!
