Southern California Lake and Fishery Information

Casitas

This is a gorgeous lake that is surrounded by rolling hills; a mountainous background where the oak trees meet the water's edge. The wildlife is abundant and it is very common to see deer strolling the shoreline. This fishery has several species of game fish, but the one we concentrate on are the Florida strain largemouth bass. Because our lake is so deep and stocked with rainbow trout, the largemouth grow to world record size. At any moment, on any cast, the world record fish could bite and change your life!

Resembling a desert lake, lying at the foot of Mt. Pinos, resides this well known reservoir. Though the scenery is at the opposite end of the spectrum bass profrom the first lake, what it lacks in foliage, it makes up for in year round bass 

fishing. Here, the Florida strain largemouth share the deep water characteristics and forage that grow big fish like their relatives at Casitas. The other species of bass that dwell here are the striped bass, and let me tell you, they grow them BIG here. It is not uncommon to see a boil that is the equivalent of a tuna smacking bait on the surface. We fish Castaic Lake limited September-December.
