San Luis Reservoir is probably best known for kicking out a world record striper back in 1992. Hank Ferguson caught the 67-pound, 8-ounce liner at the O’Neill Forebay to set the landlocked all-tackle record for the species. But today, most of the liners at the man-made lake are in the 10-pound class. According to Larry Bristow of Lucky Larry’s Bait, the best spots for stripers are coves and points such as Goosehead Point. 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.
