Lake Hemet Rainbow Trout stocking in February and March has begun to produce nice fish using PowerBait and worms fished on the bottom off the peninsula near the marina. Lake Hemet is now at full capacity from winter rains. Water clarity is still little cloudy from all the water flows but beginning to clear up. The fish stocking will continue through the spring with additional stockings scheduled for April and May … continuing in September, October and November. Rainbows stocked are in the one to one and half pound range (12-15 inches) with some very nice fish in the 3-5 pound range in the mix as well.
Things are shaping up for a great summer here on the mountain with great fishing, boating and lakefront camping. Spring and summer weekends are beginning to fill up but plenty of great campsites are still available for campers who want to shoreline fish right from their campsites. We’ve been waiting for lake levels like this for several years … and that time has finally arrived. Make plans now to enjoy the mountain camping and fishing adventures we’ve all been waiting for!
