Dixon Lake trout fishing remains steady since its last trout stocking on March 25, 2015. Pier 1 remains the most popular fishing spot, along with Whisker Bay and Jack Creek Cove. Mini jigs were reported frequently by fisherman who caught limits of trout. Night crawlers and PowerBait were reported as well. Multiple limits were caught this past week.
Impressive stringers were presented by Les and John Crine of Murrieta on 4/1. The Crines reported fishing near the buoy line, where they brought in the trout using PowerBait.
The catfish bite remains steady for those who choose to fish for them. Fresh shrimp and mackerel have been the most effective bait.
Dixon Lake continues to see occasional large female bass. Jason Dobson of Escondido caught a bass with an unofficial weight of 7 lbs on 4/4. Dobson reported being near the boat dock. Bass season is rapidly approaching, but rangers have yet to see the beginning of spawning. Male bass have been most frequently caught.
Weather and road conditions permitting, Dixon Lake should receive its next stock of 3,000 lbs. of trout on 4/8/15. Please call the ranger station at (760) 839-4345 for updates.
