LAKE CASITAS

Rich Tauber Lake Casitas Fishing Guide

Lake Casitas opened to fishing in the late 50’s, and what a great producer it has been! As a result, we started our Lake Casitas Fishing Guide service in 1977. There are many reasons why we feel that Lake Casitas is one of the finest bass fishing lakes in America.

Lake Casitas, Ventura County, California

First, it’s a “no body contact” lake, therefore, no swimming, water skiing, or jet skiing. As a result, this keeps the crowds and noise down. By all means, we our a big believer that half the enjoyment of the fishing day is about a beautiful, peaceful setting. And Lake Casitas delivers. For the most part, we have little or no wind each morning, and light onshore breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean every afternoon. In fact, we can count on one hand how many days we have had to cancel due to wind. With over thirty miles of shoreline, there’s a lot of room to fish. Accordingly, the combination of all these elements make Lake Casitas our #1 choice.

Big Bass in Lake Casitas

Lake Casitas is “FULL” of fish and is most famous for it’s “double digit” bass. As a matter of fact, two of the top 15 largest bass ever caught have come from this Ventura County impoundment. Consequently, what is overlooked is the huge population of 2 to 5 pound bass. we customize each day for my clients. In addition, we target what your needs are, and we discuss this before each fishing day.

Lake Casitas Fishing Guide Map

Fishing can be very good year round. However, there two times of the year that are most famous, Winter and Spring. Winter is “BIG FISH” time at Lake Casitas, and there are two basic approaches for this time of year. Those being: to fish the big swimbaits for a monster, and scooping live shad for huge numbers of fish. The Spring is “prime time” and two techniques dominate. Site fishing for a giant, and once again fishing the live shad for lots of catch and release fun. 

The summer and fall is topwater time and as a result, anglers can fish the topwater bait all day long. In other words, it’s an exciting, visual way of fishing and the great thing is that a 10 plus pound fish can hit the bait at any time. For those who bring friends and children, it should be noted, we still have excellent live bait fishing with the netted shad.

Where to Fish on Lake Casitas

Bass fishermen work the areas of the lake where there are sharp drop-offs. Especially good places are around Main Island and around the numerous points. Likewise, anglers also do well all along the eastern shore. In addition, the Coyote Creek area is known for its good bass fishing too.

From the shore, anglers do well catching trout near campgrounds, especially by Mallard and Grebe Campgrounds. Likewise, trolling for trout can be rewarding in the deep water between Main Island and the western shore all the way down to the dam. When they open in June, Grindstone Canyon Cove and Indian Mesa Cove are always good fishing spots.
