El Dorado Regional Park, Long Beach

Robert holds up a nice El Dorado Park carp.

About the lake.

El Dorado is a large park that has 4 lakes to choose from. I have landed carp from all 4 lakes and they all support good populations. The two larger lakes are also stocked with catfish and trout depending on season and they support a good population of largemouth bass and panfish. Try fishing midweek to avoid the weekend crowds.
