Lake Elsinore

Lake Elsinore Overview

About the lake.

Lake Elsinore is a fairly large lake which maintains a huge carp population. Attempts to destroy the carp population at this lake have only resulted in a greater number of smaller carp in the 3-5lb. range and fewer large fish. They have recently started stocking striped bass to try and help irraticate the carp but this will most likely fail also. This is an excellent shore fishing lake with a large accessible shoreline for anglers.
