Trout Plants To Resume At Casitas, Castaic Lagoon, And Skinner

Recommended Posts



Trout plants from the Department of Fish and Wildlife will resume soon on at least three major waters in Southern California -- Lake Skinner, Lake Casitas, and the Castaic Lagoon (afterbay) -- and the agency is working on environmental documentation that will also allow the state to again plant Cachuma Lake and Lake Piru at some time in the future.

     But “soon” is a relative term, and those plants could resume as “soon” as the end of the year or as “soon” as late next year for Skinner, Casitas, and the Castaic Lagoon. For Cachuma and Piru, the resumption of stocking may still be a year or more away."


speaking of world record bass, looks like Casitas , Castaic Lagoon, and Skinner will finally have trout plants resuming sometime soon.  Its been a few years since trout was planted at any of these locations.  2 of these places have produced 20lb+ bass before .  WIth Casitas requiring anyone wanting to launch a boat to wait 35 days after passing mussel inspection to do so, the light fishing pressure there is kind of a gurantee.  wooohooo!

Read this about 3 weeks ago in WON, finally the DFG/DFW turned in their study report after 6 years due to no funding. The Filmore hatchery needs to get back into production, that is our source of rainbow trout plants.

This is the time of year they plant; Oct to March. It will take about 3 years to have a impact on the trophy bass population.

About time. I wish there was an advocate to fight for our rights to boat on our own lakes.
