Like you I am relatively new to sailing in Los Angeles so I am always interested to find out about new sailing spots. I have not sailed Lake Perris, but using the search function turns up lots of topics about Lake Perris.
This link was near the top of the list of links when I searched on Lake Perris:

i would like to see some pictures of sailing at Lake Perris, because I have never seen it windier than about 8 knots. I'm guessing because I have only been there in the fall?

Wait for a Santa Ana - I sailed it in 4.0-4.2 conditions last fall. Get it in the morning.

Check out this link for near real-time wind for Lake Perris. It is pretty accurate from my experience with that Santa Ana.

Lake Perris is a California classic. Long ago, as a kid, I met two brothers with their parents (who were needed for their coaching and their driver's licenses) early in the morning (about 8AM) on a great Santa Ana winds day...while I was in college in Long Beach...about 1988.

They also were sailing Bruce Jones Sailboards -- and I noticed that they seemed to do a lot MORE with them than I did with my Bruce Jones. They helped get me even more inspired..

Those two kids were then, and also turned out to be, Matt and Kevin Pritchard.

lake perris can be pretty good just about every afternoon in the summer...it tends to blow a bit later in the day. starst about 4pm..check out national weather service site ..click on so cal...click riverside..on lower right of that page you see in blue a line that reads local obs...click on that line...click on march air force base. this is only updated every hour but it gives you a good idea of the wind at the lake....t
