San Pablo Reservoir Fishing Report

San Pablo Reservoir - El Sobrante, CA (Contra Costa County)

Trout Fishing

The trout bite has slowed down to a crawl. Fish closer to the Dam where the water is much cooler. The last plant of trout was on 6-24-15 we will try to plant in between now and the start of fall if the water temperature will allow.

Catfish Fishing

The Catfish bite has increased with the warmer weather and the fact that we started planting catfish. Catfish bite on night-crawlers, chicken livers, anchovies, and baits that are stinky fish on the bottom.

Crappie Fishing

The crappie bite is on and the best locations are down the middle of scow canyon and at the boat launch area.
