Hi Rob:
The article I wrote on fly fishing Lake Perris is in Southwest Fly Fishing magazine

Hi Rob,
I use an intermediate (not sink tip) line. The whole line sinks at a constant rate, so the line stays pretty straight. If you add a bit of weight to the fly (I wrap some lead wire to the hook when I'm tying it) you can get the fly to sink pretty deep.
My favorite intermediate line is the Cortland Clear Camo. It's a clear intermediate line that sinks at about 1.5 inches per second.
For Lake Perris I use a tapered fluorocarbon leader, chop a litle off the end, then tie on about 4 to 5 feet of fluorocarbon tippet. With all the submerged vegetation I usually don't go below 8 pound tippet. My leader is usually about 12 feet long. Lately I've been fishing with a 6 weight rod.
I wrote an article a few years back for Southwest Fly Fishing magazine with tips and techniques for fly fishing Lake Perris. If you're interested I can send you a link.
Regards,
Bob Gaines

Hi Rob, I'm using a slow sinking intermediate line (that sinks about 1.5 inches per second) in the east end (from lot 11/12). Before the lake rose I memorized the underwtaer topography and shrubbery, so I know where I can let the fly sink down without getting snags.

But with the water continually rising, I'm starting to lose some of my reference points!

When fishing baitfish patterns for Bass I use a fly with a weed gaurd.

Rob, my hook of choice is the Eagle Claw L210 in size #6.....make sure it's installed with the hook point riding up toward the flat or concaved side of spoon.
