Winter Fishing

There will be no set Trout stockings scheduled for 2019/2020 due to the unpredictability of Golden Algae blooms.

Trout will be stocked this winter, as encouraging conditions permit.  _____________________________________________________________         

White Pelican swims along south end of Lake Mission Viejo

       American White Pelican graces Lake Mission Viejo     

These migrating birds move up and down the coast seasonally and frequent our lake, usually beginning in November.  Their arrival historically coincides with the first rainbow trout stocking. White Pelicans are primarily fish eaters, with an adult able to consume up to 4 lbs. of fish per day.  With a windspan of up to 10 feet, second only to the California Condor's wingspan, these graceful fliers can be seen drifting effortlessly just above our lake waters. The pelican count reached almost 100 on the lake in December.  Currently, 10 pelicans come & go daily between Lake Mission Viejo and neighboring lakes.  These pelicans have been feeding on small channel catfish along the dam and the remaining tilapia that were stocked in August 2019.  The two best spots to see pelicans on Lake Mission Viejo are North Beach early in the morning and the southwest end of the dam in Firehouse Cove (off Alicia at Marguerite Parkway).
