Lake Casitas opened to fishing in the late 50’s, and what a great producer it has been! There are many reasons why I feel that Lake Casitas is one of the finest bass fishing lakes in America.
First, it’s a “no body contact” lake, meaning no swimming, water skiing, or jet skiing. This keeps the crowds and noise down. I am a big believer that half the enjoyment of the fishing day is about a beautiful, peaceful setting. And Lake Casitas delivers. For the most part we have little or no wind each morning, and light onshore breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean every afternoon. I can count on one hand how many days I have had to cancel due to wind. With over thirty miles of shoreline, there’s a lot of room to fish. The combination of all these elements make Lake Casitas my #1 choice.
Lake Casitas is “FULL” of fish. It is most famous for it’s “double digit” bass. Two of the top 15 largest bass ever caught have come from this Ventura County impoundment. What is overlooked is the huge population of 2 to 5 pound bass. I customize each day for my clients. We target what your needs are, and we discuss this before each fishing day.
Fishing can be very good year round. However, we have two times of the year that are most famous, Winter and Spring. Winter is “BIG FISH” time at Lake Casitas, and there are two basic approaches for this time of year. Those being to fish the big swimbaits for a monster, and scooping live shad for huge numbers of fish. The Spring is “prime time” and two techniques dominate. Site fishing for a giant, and once again fishing the live shad for lots of catch and release fun.
The summer and fall is topwater time. You can fish the topwater bait all day long. It’s an exciting, visual way of fishing and the great thing is that a 10 plus pound fish can hit your bait at any time. For those who bring friends and children, we still have excellent live bait fishing with the netted shad.
