Southern California's Hottest Bass Lakes

El Capitan
El Capitan is one of the biggest lakes in the county, formed by the damming of the San Diego River. El Capitan is a prolific local tournament lake, kicking out quality limits year-round.
Lower Otay
Lower Otay is a long tule lined lake with a lot of flippable shoreline cover. Bass over 10 pounds are common, especially around the trout plants.
Lake Hodges
Lake Hodges is one of the most famous local lakes, being the only "non-trout" lake to produce a bass over 20 pounds.
Diamond Valley Lake
There may be no hotter lake in the country in the last few years than Diamond Valley. This new reservoir is as healthy as can be, with clear water, deep structure, and tons of solid bass.
Lake Murray
Lake Murray is known for its trophy bass, kicking out numerous teen-sized fish each year. The spring is the best time to target the double-digit Murray bass.
Miramar Lake
Miramar is a small, deep, clear-water reservoir that has produced 5 of the top 25 largest bass ever caught. Tules line the majority of the lake and provide year-round cover for bass.
