Fishing Picks of the Week

1. The rockfish action from Oxnard to Morro Bay has just been phenomenal, with limit-style fishing most days on most boat, even the short half-day trips. There have been lots of reds and bocaccio in the rockfish limits, and when you add in the good scores on whitefish, and a smattering of sheephead and lingcod, these have been top notch trips. For an update on this bite, check the daily scores on 976-TUNA.com or call one of the landings in the region.

2. The Pyramid Lake striper bite stays in the top picks this week. Lots of limits of fish around 2 pounds with some to 6 or 7 pounds, and even the occasional bigger fish. The best bite has been on cut baits and lug worms, and there are also a lot of catfish showing in this bite. For an update on this action, check with the Emigrant Landing entrance booth at 661-295-7155 or Tackle Express at 661-251-8700.

3. There were three plants of brown trout this past week at Silverwood Lake, and the action on the browns and rainbows has been very good with a lot of limits reported. The trout have been running up to 1-8 and have been showing on spinners, small spoons, or trout jigs. For an update on this action, check with the marina staff at 760-389-2299.
