If fishing for big trout sounds like fun, then the place to be this week is Irvine Lake. Trout in the 10-pound range are being caught there with fair regularity, biting on practically any bait.
For example, Sparky Pavalonis of Fullerton used a salmon egg to catch an 11-pound 8-ounce rainbow, and Jim White of Gardena used cheese to catch one weighing 10 pounds 10 ounces. For Steve Pieratt of Brea, a nightcrawler was the charm. He caught one weighing 10 pounds 8 ounces.
