Matthew Phelps of Hemet caught a couple of nice bass at Diamond Valley Lake, on a shad-colored 6-inch Spro lure. His bass weighed in at 5.07 pounds and 6.51 pounds. Anglers report shad-like lures work great for bass here, and plastics are working best in pink, purple and green colors. The lake will host the Striper King Classic Tournament Sept. 28, with weigh-in at 2:30 p.m. For more information, call the marina at (951) 926-7201 or visit dvmarina.com.
