This few fish showing have come early in the morning on PowerBait in garlic, spring green, and salmon peach or inflated nightcrawlers, with a few fish also showing on small trout jigs or small spoons. The bass bite, however, has been good with fish to 5 pounds showing on a variety of plastics, including Senkos. The catfish action is also improving with some nice fish landed, mostly on mackerel and shrimp. For more information call (760)240-1107.
