Lots of homeless people and the water smells funny. It has fish though so I’ll hit it up from time to time. I definitely wouldn’t keep/eat anything I caught there

Great Place To Sharpen Your Fishing Skills

A lot of fishing pressure, polluted, unknown objects on the bottom that I lost a spinner bait and a crank bait to. Still caught fish but definitely not the best fishery. One bass had half his lip hanging off. Also very shallow I believe

Great little spot to get out and do some fishing or just to enjoy a day at the park.

This lake has a good population of bass , tilapia and carp but this lake does not get stocked also the water quality is not the best. Pass the word about practicing catch and release at Lake Balboa.

This is my local lake and its great for getting the itch of getting a bite off and over with! There are a-lot of bass and catfish in here and they’re all strong fighters even the little ones!

love going here to try out new retrieves and baits. fish size has gone down considerably but if you are lucky you can still get a decent fish. beware or of paddle boat users, they are jerks sometimes.

This is a good place to fish, lots of fish caught by people and good for people to begin fishing.

A great lake for beginners and people who use live worms. It is a very pressured lake though. There are Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Common Carp, Tilapia, Plecos, and occasionally other species. Lots of bait fish. If you are using worms you will most of the time get bites and you will catch small bass. If you use the right bait for catfish and carp you can catch some GAINT fish. Plecos will keep on getting on your line and the Lake is loaded with Plecos. If you fish there often and study the Lake and are targeting bass you occasionally can catch some BIG ones. The lake is not that deep. Micro fishing for bass is your best bet to catch a fish. You can check out my Channel because I have a lot of videos of how to catch fish at Lake Balboa.

3 catches in one hour, lots of fun and chill time.

I like the lake, it’s small lake and the fish were small, but it was fun catching these aggressive fish.
