The Quagga closed Casitas and you have to drive a bit for freshwater float tubing. There's Castaic Lagoon, where Larry caught the new world record fly rod bass this year. I like Santa Margarita (up by San Luis Obispo.) Most everything I can think of is a long drive. A lot of people tube by the Harbor in Santa Barbara.

Yes, castaic lagon is good LMB and bluegill FF, also elizabeth lake and padingstone can be good at times. It sure sucks that
they closed down casitas for float tubing.
Hows Margarita for float tubing? I never been there. Is it worth the drive up there?

Santa Margarita is one of my favorite float tubing lakes. Very scenic, easy access, no skiers allowed! and great bass fishing. Also good for bluegill, crappie, trout (in the winter months if they're stocking next year) and catfish.

Santa Margarita is in my backyard, almost literally. Cool It is a great place to tube. There are a number of no wake areas that are good fishing. I would caution you to avoid crossing open water outside of the no wake bouys, some of the bass boats fly on that lake. It keeps the park staff happy as well and we want to keep float tubing there as an option. The lake is a non contact body of water so bring your waders. Please make sure all your equipment is clean, dry and preferably treated to prevent transport of unwanted critters. If you need more inf0 just PM me.

thank you for the inf0. I need to make the trip up there. May make more sence for me to go for two days (over nite).
Is there a float tube inspection of some kind (mussels). I do clean my tube after every trip and dry it on the sun but every
lake has something "special" going on as for requirements.
There is a lake by san diego that they want to power wash your tube at 180F !!!!No mater how clean it is!
