Castaic Lake Fishing Guide Report 09-23-2016 … High North winds plagued most of the days this week at Castaic Lake and the lake was closed on Friday the 23rd. The back of the ski arm near the buoy line continues to be the hotspot for most of the Striped Bass action. There has been sporadic Striper Bass boils during the morning hours and smaller topwater poppers with feathered rear trebles are proving to be a better choice than walking baits or swimbaits. 

There is an abundance of shad all over the area and most of it is in the 1 to 2 inch size. A good pattern when there aren't any surface fish working at Castiac Lake is trolling the same area with small jerkbaits, crankbaits and umbrella rigs equipped with smaller, shad-style swimbaits. Most of the fish are down 10'-15' in the water column. There are good numbers of Stripers in this area in two schools. One has fish running about two pounds and the other has fish in the five pound class. 

There has also been some quality four and five pound Largemouth Bass caught on the same topwater popper pattern. Look for single baitfish splashes in the pockets and cuts.

Lake Casitas and Castaic Lake Fishing Guide Report 09-21-2016 … Well it's that time of year where we have two options for our bass fishing guide clients. We still have steady largemouth bass fishing at Lake Casitas in Ventura California. If your target is largemouth bass Lake Casitas definitely should be your choice. I have been focusing primarily on a drop shot plastic worm and a spinnerbait for the majority of the catches. Calm conditions provide steady drop shot fishing where as in the afternoon once the wind blows we have some very good spinnerbait fishing in a few isolated places on the lake. As always we provide all the rods reels and tackle that you'll need at Lake Casitas and we have two boats to choose from a beautiful Phoenix bass boat and for groups of people we always have our G3 fishing pontoon boat ready to go. We're keeping a steady eye on the striped bass fishing at Castaic Lake in Castaic California. Each and every day the fishing improves and the majority of the action is on crashing stripers boiling on threadfin shad at various times throughout the day. We really believe that the striped bass fishing at Castaic Lake in Southern California will improve as the temperatures get cooler. These fish like to school up when the water gets cool and we are expecting some very good fishing through the fall and winter. Anglers interested in a striped bass fishing trip can contact me at 818-439-1154. You can call or leave a text message at that number and I'll get back to you right away. As always we're open seven days a week and we are proud to have the largest freshwater fishing guide service in Southern California. All of our fishing trips provide bottled water and package snacks at no extra charge. Basically anglers can come just the way they are to the lake and will have everything ready for them. We are supposed to have some beautiful warm temperatures for the next seven days and after that it looks like we will start to have a steady dose of fall weather with nice cool temperatures for fishing clients. This is a great time of year to book your bass fishing guide trip with Rich Tauber Fishing as most of the water ski and recreational boat traffic on the lake is done for the year. This is a great time for fisherman as we've noticed just a small amount of boat traffic and for the most part only fishermen on the lake which makes for a beautiful quiet day.

Lake Casitas Fishing Guide Report 09-03-2016 … Here it is Saturday morning of the Labor Day weekend and this morning we experienced some very good topwater fishing at Lake Casitas in Ventura California. As the fall season approaches us were are beginning to see the shad start to move toward some of the coves and pockets as there was quite a bit of schooling action with numerous topwater boils all throughout the morning. I will be leaving to fish my 34th consecutive U.S. Open on Wednesday, September 8 and returning on September 15. My great staff will take care of business while I'm away. Jim Taibi my full-time fishing guide at Castaic Lake and Pyramid Lake reports steady fishing and is focusing most of his attention on striped bass. There's a good mix of topwater fishing and fish on the troll at both reservoirs. Castaic Lake is full of water and now that the Labor Day weekend will be behind us here in a few days we should start to experience little to no boat traffic on both Castaic Lake andPyramid Lake especially on weekdays. We have always explained to our fishing guide clients that fall is absolutely the premier time to fish striped bass at Castaic Lake and Pyramid Lake. It's just a classic time of season with a mixture of live shad, topwater fishing, and fish on the troll for all of our striped bass anglers. Fisherman interested in fishing for largemouth bass will spend the day with me at Lake Casitas in Ventura California and anglers interested in fishing for striped bass will spend the day with Jim Taibi at Castaic Lake or Pyramid Lake. Anglers interested in booking a fishing trip can call or text us at 818-439-1154. As always we supply everything that you need for your fishing day. The striped bass are fantastic to eat and we focus on on this during our trips. We recommend our anglers bring an ice chest to bring striped bass home to eat as they are fantastic table fair. Anglers can also go to for more information.
