Current Fishing Updates:

1,000 pounds of TILAPIA STOCKED AUG 30th

500 Pounds of Tilapia STOCKED SEPTEMBER 28!


Fishing conditions are very good with 500 lbs. of Tilapia stocked late afternoon on Thursday, Sept. 28.

3,700 lbs. of Tilapia (around 1.5 lbs each), 800 lbs. of Channel Catfish (around 2.5 lbs each), 1,400 individual Redear Sunfish (stocked for future fishing, to bolster up lake environment) along with a couple hundred pounds of Fathead Minnows and Golden Shiner Minnows (feeder fish) have been stocked in Lake Mission Viejo between July and September!

Limits are being caught!  Anglers are coming down after work for evening sessions of 'cat' fishing as well as catching their limits on Tilapia!

Worms are working best for both the Tilapia and Catfish. They can be purchased at the Boat Rental Office/Tackle Box for $2.69 for a small tub.

After a difficult Trout season last winter that had to end prematurely due to Golden Algae damage, it wasn’t until this July that we were able to resume fish plantings. Tilapia and Catfish were planted throughout the summer in catchable sizes and by August the Tilapia had really begun to bite. Recently it has been especially productive for catching Tilapia. Anglers are also catching a number of 3” to 5” tilapia that were spawned in just the past couple months. Considering that they won’t be pan-sized soon enough and the fishing is on, LMVA plans yet another Tilapia planting during the last week of September. This last planting will have brought a total of 4300 pounds of Tilapia this summer! 

Reminder - Golden Algae is NOT harmful to humans or other mammals.  Water quality is very good with no illnesses reported due to water use or contact. 

Frequent Lake monitoring and regular water testing continues, as always, to ensure a safe, enjoyable experience at Lake Mission Viejo.

Fishing updates will be posted here regularly.
