The largemouth bass have managed to keep anglers occupied all week. Many verbal reports of 10+ bass per angler, mostly in the 1-2 pound range. Horseshoe Cove was the best for that kind of fishing. George Burruss, visiting from North Dakota caught a 10 lb 1 oz bass on a drop shot rig in Horseshoe Cove. Other good areas include the opening to Pumphouse Cove and directly across from the launch ramp. 

Little trout action was reported this week, as most anglers were after bass and catfish. Jessica Dillard fooled a 5 pound trout; her personal best. She also landed a 3 pound catfish.

The catfish continue to please anglers with many limits reported. Nightcrawlers are the best bet. Emily Stewart of San Diego had a good day with 2 cats, 3 bass and 4 bluegill. Crappie have moved away from shore and can be found in deeper waters around the dam using small jigs. Carp are being caught on a more regular basis while anglers are looking for meatier fair.

Largemouth bass have captivated anglers this last week. Josh Anderson of Coronado was throwing a texas rigged plastic worm in Cabin Cove when he pulled out a 17 incher. Ricky and Jessie Arnold caught bass in both Horseshoe and Paradise Coves with nightcrawlers. Dan Price and his friend Scott McLaughlin of San Diego both caught and released 28 lb limits EACH in Horseshoe Cove with jigs and crankbaits. Brian Scott of Campo was picking them up and laying ’em down with a crankbait all around the lake also. He figured he amassed 37 lbs with his five best. Allison Bush from San Marcos cranked in a 9 lb 6 oz beauty near the dam. She seemed to be shaking as we got her report and weight.

Period from April 27 – May 3, 2013: The buoy line and up through Paradise Cove continues to shine as the go-to area for the rainbow trout. Of course Geezer Cove was still a hot spot along with areas around Cabin Cove. And just trolling trough the deeper middle near the buoy line was providing results. Green-sparkle Powerbait, Garlic Powerbait, Nightcrawlers, Rapalas-regular and small, Kastmasters were your best bet. Bass in numbers and size have improved large this week. Thomas Bossard, Jacumba, caught and released several large-mouths with the largest weighing in at 9lbs 4ozs. using plastic lures. Brain Fansher, Campo, was here several times this week bringing up and letting go 37lbs worth in one day in various locals and C&R a 10lb 2oz. beauty with Senko. Jon Knoebel, Campo, had a nice time fooling a 4lb 5oz bass.
