[ARCHIVED] Week of January 24-28

Rene Rodriguez 10 lb trout 25 Jan 2018 Half Moon Bay jig - Copy

This Stock-Week started with a strong bite! Wednesday Jaret Sargent hauled in a 10 pound Tailwalker that  he hooked on a Panther Martin. He was fishing North of Hidden Bay. Thursday Rene Rodriguez hooked a 10 Tailwalker using a jig in Half Moon Bay (see photo). Also on Thursday, Joseph Ta brought in a 7 pound Tailwalker using a Trap Jig. In addition to the big fish there were many limits Wednesday and Thursday. High winds Saturday afternoon and all-day Sunday slowed the bite.


The next big event at Lake Poway will be the 23rd Annual Youth Fishing Derby this February 3rd.
