Fishing Spots Near Aliento

Posted on 14 Sep, 2018

Angling to get out on the lake? Aliento’s master-planned community in Santa Clarita provides easy access to a number of fun fishing spots where you can throw your line in.

Castaic Lake
Reel in rainbow trout, channel catfish and bass from the lake’s shoreline and dam. During the summer and winter, cruising along the more open waters will likely work in your favor as fish choose to stick around deeper areas. Boat rentals and fishing supplies are available near the Upper Lake’s main launch ramp. Enjoy fishing under the moonlight with nighttime hours May through September.

Quail Lake
Looking for a scenic spot for kids? Shoreline fish off Quail Lake. During warmer days you may see striped bass sticking out of the water feeding on baitfish, making them far easier to catch.

The Arroyo
Practice fly-fishing for free any Sunday from 1-5 p.m. at the Arroyo Seco casting pond. Or take a clinic to brush up on your skills from the Pasadena Casting Club.

Pyramid Lake
Rise and shine at this fishing spot with incredible views of the San Emigdio Mountains. Named after a pyramid-shaped rock carved out by engineers constructing the Old Highway 99, Pyramid Lake has striped bass, trout, large and smallmouth bass, catfish and bluegill opportunities. Telescopes are available to take a look around the canyons. Afterwards, you can picnic near the Emigrant Landing launch ramp or boat over to Spanish Point.

If you need to get your California fishing license, you can register through the state wildlife department online portal.

After a day of fishing, Aliento residents can come back home and cook their catches on the poolside grills at The Terrace, the community’s resort-style amenity center. Learn more about the Santa Clarita area and receive the latest Aliento updates by joining our Interest List.
