San Vicente Reservoir
The lake responsible for producing the last two California State Record Blue Catfish, first a 101 lb Blue caught in 2001, and in 2008 a 113 pound giant Blue Catfish. There is a natural island in the middle of the lake that provides prime fishing territory and an attractive view from all around.
The lake is also a prime bass lake that regularly hosts fishing tournaments from local and regional organizations. While it doesn’t typically produce the size of fish that the smaller reservoirs do, it has been consistently the best bass fishery in the county.
Trout are stocked during the winter which provides fun for anglers and growth pills for the bass to gorge on. Trout fishing is somewhat sporadic however and actually the least popular. This lake is an incubator for 3 lb. Bluegill, Redear Sunfish, and Largemouth bass with a large percentage over 10 lbs.
In addition to fishing, water-skiing is also available on the lake.
