National Bass West is a tournament series in California and Arizona. In the San Diego region, the tournaments are usually held at Lake Hodges, Lower Otay, and El Capitan. This Saturday, April 16, will be the final winter tournament at El Capitan Reservoir.

El Capitan Reservoir

21000 El Monte Road, Lakeside

El Capitan Reservoir is known for its steep edges and fish that hit aggressively. The lake’s depth, more than double most of other county lakes, allows water temperatures from the low 50s to nearly an 80-degree average at the surface in the summer. Where will the big fish stage?

For those that want a better view, El Capitan welcomes float tubes, kayaks, motor boats, and jetskis.
