Lake Jennings County Park offers the city-bound angler the opportunity to fly fish for stocked trout, bass, and bluegill in a country setting. Though popularly regarded as a place to soak PowerBait, for fly anglers, especially those short on time, Lake Jennings is possibly San Diego’s best-kept bass secret. Abundant bird life, including ospreys, call this reservoir home, and if you pay attention, you’ll even spot the occasional deer as it comes down to the water’s edge. At times like this, it’s hard to believe that you’re just 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. Types of Fish: Stocked rainbow trout, stocked catfish, largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
