Lake Casitas Professional Review and Guide
"Big trout equal bigger bass. That’s the formula lake officials have used to turn this 2,700-acre lake into a top-notch bass fishery. Lake Casitas officials have done a great job in recent years to stabilize its trout fishery and it has benefited both trout and bass anglers alike. There are regular Department of Fish and Game plants as well as the occasional Calaveras and Idaho trout plants with fish normally checking in at a pound apiece. 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."
