Irvine Lake fishing tournament top catch is 14-pound, 10-ounce rainbow trout
Irvine Lake hosted a fishing tournament during the three-day Presidents Day holiday weekend, with daily prizes offered for the biggest fish landed.
The largest catch overall was a 14-pound, 10-ounce rainbow trout, pictured above, that was hooked Saturday by Art Villa from El Modino using a Power Mouse while fishing at Trout Island.
Fishing overall at the privately run lake was reported to be good, despite the inclement weather. As of Tuesday, however, the road to Trout Island is underwater and will not reopen until further notice. There are also other areas that may be closed due to flooding or muddy conditions.
