Silverwood Lake





About the lake.

Silverwood Lake is a large body of water located in the San Bernardino Mountains above Hesperia. This lake contains large populations of both largemouth and striped bass. These fish feed mostly on shad and rainbow trout so using a lure that imitates these fish will increase your chances at landing a big fish. The dam area and near the boat docks are two really good areas that you definately want to fish and they are also the most accessible shore fishing areas. Fishing from a boat will give you access to many areas that cannot be accessed by shore anglers and you can get away from the crowds which can be large during the Summer and on weekends. Be sure to check the weather reports before heading to Silverwood because it can be really windy at times.
