Lake Poway Fish Reports

Posted on: May 12, 2019

[ARCHIVED] Week of May 8-12

Spring Camping 10 May 2019

The trout bite has slowed a little but there are still some anglers landing 2 or 3 Tailwalkers. Bass are still biting well. Big bass are getting hooked on swim baits and artificial worms.

Please release spawning bass, we do not stock bass so the only way to maintain the population is to allow them to spawn.

Our fourth and final Spring Campout will be coming up this Friday, May 17th.  Fishing is allowed 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
