Twelve year old Kevin caught a 5 pound Bass from the Fishing Pier Friday. He used a night crawler for bait. He has been fishing at Lake Poway all his life and learned from his mother who has fished here since she was young.
Once again please release spawning bass, we do not stock bass so the only way to maintain the population is to allow them to spawn.
We had another great Spring Campout Friday April 26th. About 25 families came out and slept under the stars. We have 2 more campouts this Spring, both are in May. You can fish from the shore until Midnight on campout nights if you are registered for the campout and have purchased a fishing permit.
Sleep under the spring stars! Set up your tent and explore the park at your own pace. Hike the numerous trails; drop a line to catch a fish; cruise the lake on a motorboat; or simply relax by your campsite and enjoy all the natural beauty that Lake Poway offers. Fishing permits and boat rentals are not included but may be purchased for a nominal fee. This is a rain or shine event! $25 per car. (Any additions must register as an additional group) Information: (858) 668-4772 poway.org
