An Update From Lake Jennings

Here’s the latest from our friends at Lake Jennings in the San Diego area:


Lake Jennings is warming up and the trout have moved out deep. However, this past weekend produced trout both off the T-Dock/Fishing Float and the Buoyline at Cactus Patch. If you’re waiting for catfish stockings to start
targeting them than you’re missing out, Catfish are already moving into the shallows with sightings in the double-digit range. Lake Jennings will start stocking catfish the week of May 19
and will begin the season with 3,000 pounds.
“Night Fishing” season will commence on Friday, May 23, 2014 for the three-Day Memorial Day Weekend so Lake Jennings will celebrate the holiday by being open until midnight on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and open until 8:30 pm
on Monday. Watch for the change of “Hours of Operation” for the “Night Fishing” season.
bass fishing is good at best and no word of panfish.
