If God ever wanted to give the world an enema, Elsinore would be an ideal spot to begin.
If you do go to Lake Elsinore, whatever you do, DO NOT DRINK the lake water...a lot of sewer trout floating about. I used to have a Design Studio across from the Fire Station and know the area quite well.
The loading ramp area along the north side is a good place to start...other that that, the rest of the town absolutely sucks.
I'm north of you by 2 hours, but will be in Ventura this Saturday checking out the local beaches and sand parks. Not sure how well my MD will work on the beach. Never used it there before, but gotta try it once
Pick any park in Riverside. I've hunted all of them and most schools. I'm in the La Sierra area but hunt all over. There are a few of us local's that hunt together at times. If you would like to join in just let me know. We also have a local club that meets once a month if you care to join.
fairmount park is a good bet for old coins. also, try the field behind central middle school--i've found a seated dime, a few barber dimes and indian heads back there. bobby bonds sports complex has also netted me some old silver coins.
I work for Sit N Sleep you know, that mattress guy that says IT"S FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. So I have to work EVERY weekend. But I'm off on Mon, Tues and every other Wed. I,m very very new... Would love to get some advice.
I would venture to guess that Fulmer Lake located on the road from Beaumont / Banning to Idyllwild, and Lake Hemet located about 5 miles from Mountain Center on the road to Palm Springs would be virgin territory.
Fulmer Lake is maybe 10 ~ 15 acres with a picnic area along the north side, would be prime.
I prefer to fly fish the lake whenever I have an few free hours.
There are several mountain climbing base camps (park) on the south side of Fern Valley that could prove to be very productive...a lot of day climbers that change clothes in the open that could prove to be a good coin-drop area. Try the edges of the parking areas first then hit the picnic tables, then the trail base.
Ant do you have any info, like what year the house was there ?? name of owner ?? when was the house torn down ?? could it have been flooded out ?? BTW have you heard of a old hotel foundations in the sand hills near this place. There is a old ( beat up and worn ) neon sign by the road..
