The cooler weather has made for ideal conditions for local fishers at Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park's fishing lakes. This week at Guasti Regional Park lakes, anglers brought in a total of five Bluegill/Redear, one Carp, nine Catfish, one Crappie, one Largemouth Bass, one Striped Bass and one Trout.
The top five catches reported by San Bernardino County Regional Parks for June 16 include:
- The five Bluegill were caught on the south side of the larger lake by Omar Quinoa of Ontario, using mealworms.
- Matthew Mendoza of Los Angeles brought in a 3 lbs. 7 oz. Catfish in the same area of the large lake, using shrimp.
- Catfish Cove yielded a 1 lb. 13 oz. Catfish for Luis Gonzalez of Riverside. He used nightcrawlers to lure the fish.
- Brad Burkholder of Pomona was able to catch his four Catfish from the dock, using shrimp, as did Anthony Williams of La Puente who also caught four.
The County offers this tip to those looking to catch some catfish of their own at Guasti lakes: Use shrimp for bait and note the best location for catching them is by the dock.
