Del Valle bass biting

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)


by Nor Cal Fish Reports
9-24-2015

The water has dropped in temperature to 75 degrees and the lake level is slowly receding to winter levels. The change in weather would normally shut the fishing down for a few days until the weather stabilized but, this week the fish ate bait through the changes. Striped bass are still boiling in the mornings from 6:30 am - 8:00 am then it’s more isolated blow ups into the afternoon. Big points, drop off's, and shelf ledges are great places to find atripes. They also like being suspended in the deeper water at the edge of shadows, trees, big rocks. Catfish are still hitting strong all around the lake. The narrows has been a super hot spot for cats including Hetch Hetchy, the south end, and West beach. Big catfish are starting to fatten up for winter, so they are eating everything in sight. The largemouth and smallmouth are eating shad as well, look for individual splashes near shore. Those are typically bass but, they can also be carp or catfish. Spooks, pencil poppers, jerk baits, and lipless cranks are catching the bass but sometimes you just can’t beat a good old fashioned plastic worm like a Robo worm, Senko, or Chommper worm with garlic.
