Freshwater Fishing - Beginner - Help Needed (socal)!!

Me and a few friends have recently taken up fishing. We went to lake Castiac today in southern california and had zero sucess. We tried the "carolina Rig" as well as utilized some lures and caught nothing.

Our hooks repeatedly were getting caught on rocks causing use to lose lures / bait.

Is there any recommended fishing spots in so cal? Any recommendations for beginners to fresh water fishing. We experimented with powerbait / mouse tail / blood worm / cast master / robo worm and nothing was hitting.

Any tips to get some fishing noobs going would be greatly apprecaited

Join a local fishing club plus get to know the owners of the small bait shacks and ask quesitons. Be sure to buy something on each visit to support the small business owner. You want them to be around for a while.
