Remembering Castaic Lake 

Castaic Lake Fishing Guide … I still remember going bass fishing at Castaic Lake the first day it was open to the public. It was the mid-seventies, I left straight from high school football practice to sample this much talked about bass fishery. Of course, the big talk when it first opened was about the size of the launch ramp. Moreover, it was the largest ever constructed in the west at that time. Well now the talk is about the tremendous bass population. Castaic Lake for the most part has always been a very good bass lake. It has also always been a bit querky. What I mean is the lake is famous for some really strange and off the wall bass patterns. Mud lines, barrel booms, under spins, and scroungers, just to name a few.

Castaic Lake

The lake has little or no boat traffic and these two techniques dominate. The spring allows a variety of lures to be super productive. The jig in a brown/purple color and a drop shot are tough to beat. The swim bait is still a major player also. Fish will be up-and-in. Try to focus your efforts in less than 20 feet of water. Moreover, summer means “suspend” at Castaic Lake. Likewise, keep your eye open for schooling fish in the coves, canyons, and pockets. These bass love to suspend and chase bait (threadfin shad) throughout the summer season. The under spins, and scroungers do the real damage.

Castaic Lake Fishing Guide Fall Fishing

Fall can produce lots of fish on the drop shot worm. Notably, the best color year round is ” Arron’s magic”. Fish it on 8lb. test line, with a 3/16 oz. Bakudan drop shot weight. I hope these few tips will help. Accordingly, let me know if you have any questions about  Castaic Lake Fishing, or would like to book a guided fishing trip.

Here is Oliver Tostado just 14 years of age with me today Castaic Lake. All of these fish were caught off fish breaking in open water. Never in my 45 years in the business have I ever seen topwater fishing like this in December. We had a shot at two or three really big smallmouth today but they’re just too much for the light line topwater technique were using. We were on the trailer at 11:30 AM today heading home. All of our trips for tomorrow are on hold due to the storm front. Will be back to work as soon as the weather clears. Interested in booking a fishing trip call or text me at 818-439-1154.
