San Vicente Reservoir near Lakeside, California
If you like fishing for nice catfish, good bass, and nice panfish and you are ok with spending a little money to get a permit (Permits are $4.50 per day for adults and $2.50 for children) then you should fish San Vicente Reservoir year-round, sunrise to sunset on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays but you can’t fish Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day (those are the only days you can fish here). In case you are interested the lake record largemouth bass is 18lbs and the lake record blue catfish (which is also the state record) is 101lbs. If you want to go jet-skiing or tubing or wakeboarding you can only do that Memorial Day through September (then only on Thurs. & Fri). Try fishing with jigs, soft plastics, crank baits, swim baits, live bait, and top waters. Good luck fishing!
