Due to maintenance Lake Poway Concessions will close at 2 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the month of October. This means there will be no boat rentals or fishing permit sales after 2 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays in October. Please come to Lake Poway early to purchase your boat rentals and fishing permits. Thank you.
Night fishing is over, but our last stock of catfish was August 23rd and there are still plenty of fish waiting to be caught. The best bait is still Mackerel, but people also have success with chicken livers and shrimp. For boaters the best spot is still tying up to the Log Boom and people fishing from the shore have been having the most success at Jump Off Point and Boulder Bay.
When you stop by concessions to buy your permit ask about the best spots and baits. They have up to the minute information. Remember concessions closes at 7:00 PM.
The next event here at Lake Poway is our Fall Camping Series. Sleep under the stars! Set up your tent and enjoy 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 not included but may be purchased for a nominal fee at Lake Poway concessions. This is a rain or shine event! $25 per car. (Any additions must register as an additional group) For more information call (858) 668-4772 or visit poway.org
