Otay upper and lower lakes located in Chula Vista area.  Bait can be used lower lake but not upper lake.  Check out my pictures and you can see some hiking trails in this area.  20lb plus Bass have been caught at the upper lake.  Map gives lat and long.  Hope this helps.

Almost any lake in the Sierras under 11K feet has fish.  Somewhat an over statement, but only somewhat. Sierra South and Sierra North (authors vary by edition) are trail guides that will help you with venues that include fishing.
