I live near LAX. I'm pretty new to catfishing and have only tried Irvine, SARL, and Corona lakes for catfish. Only had luck at Corona thanks to BULLDOGBOOGERS. Sometimes you just feel like having some peace and quiet and want to avoid the pay lakes during the day. I know Castaic is supposed to have some cats, but I tried shore fishing the lagoon and the main lake without any luck (this was in the summer months.) So my question... for shore fishing for cats and trout in the winter, where are some good places to try that aren't too far for me? (50-60 miles from LAX preferred). I know shore fishing for cats is tough to begin with, and it being winter will be even harder, so any advice is appreciated!!! I'd love to try some canals or rivers, but I'm pretty sure all of those are a long drive from LA.
