Lake Jennings Fishing Report

Lake Jennings Fishing Report

by Lake Jennings Staff


Anglers vying for trout during the rain were not disappointed. Trout were biting on yellow Hookup Bait and pink mini jigs. Siesta Cove and Siesta Point are popular locations for trout as well as casting off Eagle Point.

1,500 lbs. of rainbow trout is scheduled to be stocked this week! Please note: trout were not stocked last week due to inclement weather at the hatchery. Up to date information is relayed through our Facebook and Instagram channels.


Bluegill and Redear continue to bite on night crawlers and wax worms in Hermit Cove and along the campground shoreline.


Scott Barnhill shared this photo of the Eagles found along Cloister Cove. Will the Eagles be staying for awhile?


Ty Kurtz and his friend reeled in a few trout this past Saturday. Ty shared his favorite recipe for preparing his trout dinners: stuffed with mango and lemon slices, butter, garlic, green onion, salt, pepper, cilantro and the skin is topped with garlic salt and a pinch of pepper on both sides.


Kids Day is making its return this year on February 11th. 1,700 lbs. of Rainbow trout is scheduled to be stocked for this event. Make a weekend of it by reserving a site at our campground. To do so, call (619) 390-1623 or visit

Fishing etiquette reminder: please do not throw fish away in trash cans. Eat them, release them, or pass them on to a friend!
