Water conditions have improved over the past two weeks which has caused LMV biologist Tom Buckowski to order a stock of trout from Chaulk Mound Trout Farms. Plans are to stock 4000 lbs. of the Nebraska Tailwalker Trout on Wednesday, January 25th. The lake will be open for fishing immediately after the stock on the 25th.
Anglers who have continued to fish during the slow time have had some success with mini jigs and Kastmaster lures on large fish. A 6lb 9 oz. trout was taken Sunday, January 14th on a mini jig from the shore fishing area. Several resourceful anglers have landed catfish while waiting for the trout fishing to turn on. Tino Hernandez landed a 5lb, 9oz cat using garlic rainbow Powerbait on a recent shore fishing visit (see attached photo).
The Tackle Box retail outlet is stocked and the rental boats are ready, so grab your trout fishing gear and give the lake another try. Staff is encouraged by the improving water conditions and we all hope that the fish going into the lake come out on angler’s lines.
Advanced Purified Water
LMVA'sAPW (Advanced Purified Water) project started flowing today at noon after 2 long years of planning, engineering and construction.
The new system will, for the first time ever, fill Lake Mission Viejo with up to 114 million gallons of Advanced Purified Water annually in lieu of potable water. This new system will make Lake Mission Viejo the largest swimmable lake in the state and perhaps the nation, to use advanced purified water.
“We at Lake Mission Viejo Association are proud to be leading the way for other swimming lakes in the state, and we’re proud that we are doing so with such strong support from our community,” said LMVA Board President Kevin Pennington.

LMVA North Beach Parking Lot Under Construction
With recommendation from the LMVA Long Range Planning Committee, the Board of Directors has recently approved a capital expansion project for the administration parking lot in the North Beach facility. In accordance with the LMVA Vision/Mission Statement and considering the Long Range Master Plan, this project will accomplish 3 important goals.
1. Improve ADA accessibility to the North Beach facility.
2. Improve ingress and egress to the North Beach facility.
3. Upgrade aesthetics within the property.
The project, approved in December 2016 will be completed in time for the 2017 summer season. Members are encouraged to be patient during construction as parking at North Beach will be restricted to the Fishing and Upper parking lots.

The LMVA Board and staff are proud to provide the LMVA membership with another enhancement to your beautiful facilities here at Lake Mission Viejo.
