We live in north county, San Diego, and usually wakeboard at San Vicente. Now that the summer is over and no water contact is allowed on sundays, we are looking to wakeboard thru the winter months. Anyone have any input on the conditions at Lake Perris

lake perris is butter, unless wind picks up. no one there when we've gone. <BR> <BR>so, with that helpful info, when are you taking my girlfriend and i out? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

Did you guys go on a sunday? Need a pull?. : }

dakid 11-28-2004 7:39 PM

we went on a weekend a couple times, and the rest were weekdays. <BR> <BR>i seriously don't think finding good water on the weekends is going to be hard.

My advice is to get there early. They allow pwc and even during the winter you'll find them running around after about 10am on weekends. It's not nearly as bad during the week if you can get up there, but then San V is still open on for water contact Thurs and Fri. <BR>

I read somewhere that there is over ten lakes in San Diego and only one is wake/ski friendly..!! <BR>Why is this the case?? Is there any kind of group trying to fight for some wake days? <BR>How about Lake Matthews in Riverside area?? <BR>Who do you have to sleep with to get more lakes!!!

dakid is right,Perris is butter all day and butt a!@ cold too.

I been there during the winter and seem to find the fisherman will ruin what should be butter.

big_xstar 11-29-2004 10:28 AM

Hey Romi,Fishing is allowed on Perris on sundays? <BR>: (

thane_dogg 11-29-2004 11:12 AM

SoCarider - I'm pretty sure that there isn't any water contact allowed on Lake Mathews.

magellan 11-29-2004 11:48 AM

Why not? <BR>Diamond Valley too. It seems rediculous to me.}

You can thank the environmentalists and their scare tactics for the water contact ban at Diamond Valley. They almost succeeded in getting all boats banned, but the fishing lobby was organized and strong enough to prevent it. So the compromise was no 2-strokes and no MTBE fuel allowed.

Speaking of the LA I was going to hit up Perris for sure but what about Arrowhead and Big Bear?

stephan 11-29-2004 6:05 PM

The fisherman lobby in CA was huge when the contact issues were being decided &amp; they have a lot to do with so many lakes in CA not being usable. They say it's because it's water for drinking, but then so is EVERY other reservoir that we can ride on. I hate that. That's why we've taken to clipping fishermen...ohhh to dream...

Arrowhead or Big Bear???? Better bring your ice skates. <BR> <BR>Perris has never been that great to me. <BR> <BR>Lake Matthews not only does not allow contact, it is completely fenced off, no boaring, no swimming, no fishing, NO NOTHING! <BR> <BR>Diamond Valley would be an awesome place, if only we could ride there... <BR> <BR>(Message edited by socalwakepunk on November 29, 2004)
