Lake Henshaw near Julian, California
The fishing in Lake Henshaw is really good thanks to the nice, stocked rainbow trout, lots of good bass, crappies that average 1lbs, and fair bluegill that inhabit the lake. On top of that there is a ban in place preventing swimming/skiing on the lake which makes the lake an even better place to fish. The only down side is all the fees $5 per person, $2 per pet, and kids under 12 are free. If you like renting boats, renting a cabin, or buying fishing tackle from the concession that lake has that to. Keep in mind that you can't go faster than 10mph when you are out boating. Good luck fishing!
