Default targeting stripe bass

I live in Los Angeles Ca.
Any advise for where and when to go fishing for stripe bass in my area would be greatly appreciated? Even better if someone can suggest a guide
thanks, Mick

Okay, Mick. Here you go, Castaic Lake and Pyramid Lake both north of LA on I-5 are good Striper fisheries.
Diamond Valley Lake to the east and south is excellent fro striped bass.
Silverwood lake Lake out west and north also is good.
Don't forget to try lake Skinner just a short distance from DVL.
The Ca. Aqueduct that brings water from The Delta to SoCal is california's stripper highway. You'll find it just over hill to the north both along Hwy 138 and over he Tejon pass.
For a striper or Trout guided trip Give Bob a call

Don't forget to tell him I sent you.
Troutonly also fishes Lake San Antonio just a few miles from My house and my favorite striper lake.

Plumber tom beat me to it.
I wouldnt cal trout only for a guide....all he does is troll for trouts.
Theres williams bait and tackle in elsinore or art berry and greg silk who are more knowledged and reliable.

What?
Bob (Trout only) has been doing more stripers than trout lately. at least from what I can tell.
In fact the only times I've met him was when he was Up at San Antonio on a guide trip.
There are no trout in San Antonio So that pretty much means Striper fishing.

Trout only is not a prime pick of the litter.
Im sure he has caught a few stripers but nothing like the bigger models caught by silk or berry. ( on a regular basis )
Those guy know there sheet!

I knew i was right about t/o.
After making a few calls...t/o does specialize in trolling for trouts.
He did branch out and do service guide for stripers at castaic.
The locals here at dvl votes for silk or berry if your ever fishing this way.
Depending on where you want to fish...t/o for castaic?

Yeah? Did you call T/O and ask Bob? Or did you just ask Silk And Berry?
I've never heard of the Guys you're recommending.
I see no reason To down-talk any guide service you have no personal knowledge of.

Allow me to help you with that tom.
Silk a.k.a z-plug....rings a bell?
http://www.zpluglures.com/
Berry has held the dvl lake record for some years before it was broken a few months ago.
Both gents attend most all w.o.n....a.b.a...national bass west...etc.
All the locals here at dvl will tell you the same.

I was just trying to correct your misconception that T/O doesn't guide for stripers.
Notice that I didn't refute or denigrate what your recommendations were.
You certainly seemed to be a bit on the anti-T/O side with what you posted.
Myself, I've Been fishing stripers for a lot of years and while I do catch good overall numbers, I have yet to bag a striper above 20 lbs.
So just because someone fishes water that has large numbers of big stripers compared to say Pyramid lake that has generally smaller fish doesn't detract from my ability to find and boat fish.
Personally I prefer to catch many fish rather than spending all my time chasing that once in great while monster catch.
But that's all just my opinion.

I don't hire guides to teach me how to fish. I figure learning on your own is much of the fun.
Sounds to me like you have a case of red ass for Bob.
So I'm not going any further with this conversation.
