looking for places in or near Orange County to go fishing. I used to fish at Lake Mission Viejo but no longer live there and thus not a lake member. Any public spots other than the ocean in the area?

Irvine Lake, Laguna Niguel, Santa Ana Lakes all pay.
Not sure what's going on with Oso Lake now.
During winters trout planted in Trabuco Creek and even some city/county parks Mason? Tric-City? Centennial Santa Ana?
You can check DFG's planting schedule somewhere.

Laguna Lake in Fullerton. :rolleyes:

Any more info on this place? It looks nice and its close. I found a small webpage about it online but it didnt say where exactly in fullerton it was. Since it is public I would need to have a fishing license right?

i've fished irvine lake any times. if you want to catch trout, you have to rent a boat and troll using lead core. play with the colors. once you find the depth the trout is located, you will catch trout without much problems. just troll very slowly. tread a worm on the hook. give it about 15 feet lead and you should be good to go.

Yes you do need a fishing license. Check out this link for directions:

They cleaned it all up just about a year or so ago. Nice and quiet upscale neighborhood. It's nice to just walk around the area.

Oso is still closed to the public and no membership program is in the works. I fish a lot of small ponds and "secret" places in south OC. All bass fishing currently. Irvone is good for trout. What exactly are you looking to fish for?

Also, I forgot but they do stock the lake with trout. Check this article out --> http://www.ocregister.com/ocregister/sports/atoz/article_938421.php . I forgot about these other lakes in OC -Yorba, Ralph Clark, Tri-City and La Mirada regional park lakes.

Somewhere you can find (Maybe Fullerton's website) the dates they stock Laguna.

I'm going to look into this and see what I can find, but if you or anyone else can PM me some additional info on this I'd really appreciate it!

There are types of fish now? Haha, nothing specific, just something to bite the line and real 'em in. I am not a big fisher but Have a pole and enjoy just kicking back and talking with friends while doing it. I used to go fishing at lake mv a few years ago but havent fished in about 3 years since I no longer live in Mission Viejo I cant be a member of the lake. Want to get back out and cast line somewhere though. I dont even like eating fish but the dogs love it!

I think I am going to check out Laguna Lake. Gotta hit big 5 and get my license.

Sorry, Mr Livingston, can't find data on Trabuco plantings.
Here's the South Coast DFG planting page, you can sign up for email notices
http://www.dfg.ca.gov/fishplant/fishplant_r5.html
Might also check WON and OC Register. I get WON, usually Thursdays; will post if I see Trabuco plantings - I'd imagine this years meager rainfall may have put the stop to it.

magmaster - hitting the homeowners association lakes? eh?

Wasn't Laguna the place with the big ole snapping turtle? What happened to it?

Toward the bottom, work crews found jewelry, lots of trash and even a 100-pound alligator snapping turtle, nicknamed "Old Bob" and taken to a turtle sanctuary in Brea.

I saw it in WON last nite, and it's on the DFG web today that Trabuco Creek is to be planted the week of 2-26
