Laguna Niguel Regional Park will continue to welcome anglers to its popular lake. However, visitors may notice some changes beginning Nov. 1. (Flier)
Starting Nov. 1, there will no longer be a concession operating at the lake. Fishing will be free for children 15 years and younger. A California fishing license will be required for persons 16 years and older. Such fishing license can be obtained from Walmart or Sports Chalet, located close by to Laguna Niguel Regional Park. All California Department of Fish and Wildlife rules apply, as do the parking fees of $3 weekdays and $5 weekends.
The lake will be available for shoreline fishing only, with future float tube and fishing derbies to be scheduled at a later date.
Trout season will take place as usual, and is slated to begin in January to ensure cooler water temperatures and the proper permits to stock fish.
Park hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. fall and winter, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. spring and summer.
Fishing will be 7 a.m. to sunset or close of park, whichever comes first. Fishing will be year round.
