Lake Poway Fishing Report

by Lake Poway Staff

Lake Poway stocked Nebraska Tail Walkers including trophies on February 26th.  Half Moon Bay to Hidden Bay were the hottest spots following the stock.  Joseph Ta (see photo) caught an 8.5 lb. trout using Trap Jigz off Jump Off Point on February 27th. 

When you stop by concessions to buy your permit ask about the best spots and baits. They have up to the minute information.
