Dave Cavallie of Santa Barbara last week landed a monstrous 9 pound 11 ounce Rainbow. It may have weighed more because it was caught the evening before and didn't see a scale until the next morning. He was using Rainbow Garlic Powerbait while fishing the North Shore. If you are going to cast lures, I'd start with a Red/Gold or Frog pattern Thomas Buoyant. Other lures that were working included Rapalas, Kastmasters and Marvel Flies. If you are going to troll I'd tie on a Tasmanian Devil or a Needlefish. For the anglers that like to toss jigs, I'd go with either a Gulp Pinched Nightcrawler, Berkley Mice Tail or Berkley Worm rig. If you are going to drown some bait I'd go with Inflated Nightcrawlers, Salmon Eggs or Powerbait. The top Powerbait color was Rainbow. Any garlic Powerbait continued to drive the fish crazy. The most productive spot on the lake was the North Shore where the "Catch of the Week" was caught. Other locations to try would be the South Shore, Outlet/Jetty and Hangman's Tree. (760) 934-3800
