Dixon Lake trout fishing has slowed almost completely. If anglers still wish to try for trout, night crawlers and PowerBait are recommended as bait.

  • The south shoreline, Whisker Bay, and the buoy line have been the most consistent fishing locations.

    Catfish fishing continues to see success as large catfish are suspected to be eating left-over trout from the last April stocking. Fresh shrimp is the best bait for the catfish. Mackerel combined with stink bait is also being reported as effective bait.

    An extremely large catfish was caught by Yuangui Sun of San Diego on 6/7. The catfish weighed in at 14.11 lbs. Sun caught the fish near the area east of Trout Cove using a night crawler.

    Bass fishing is steady. Large female and male bass have been making appearances near the south shoreline and near the Boat Dock. Imitation trout lures and night crawlers have been the most effective baits.
