GENERAL CONDITIONS

The weather this week here at Lake Del Valle has been beautiful with temperatures cold in the mornings that rise up to the mid-60s during the day. The surface temperature is still sitting at 61 degrees this week. The hot bite this week has been trout with many anglers hooking up.

We got a fish plant of 1000lbs on 11/6/17, and are expecting a fish plant for the next three weeks so trout fishing at Del Valle should be phenomenal!

CATFISH

Catfish have done okay this week with some anglers having luck. Best baits to use would be either anchovies, nightcrawlers or cut sardines. Most anglers have been fishing out towards the dam and in the upper narrows.

TROUT

For trout, most anglers are using either power bait or power eggs, we also recommend using either mice tails, Kastmasters, or small spinners. Most anglers are fishing sandy beaches and points.

BLACK BASS

Black Bass are a good target this time of year, most anglers like to use soft plastics (swim baits, robo worms, Senkos, etc.) I would also recommend using either a crank bait or a top water lure (Heddon Spook, pencil poppers, etc.) Look for fallen trees, rocky points and tule patches.

STRIPED BASS

For Striper, most anglers have been catching them on bait, either anchovies, chicken liver, or nightcrawlers. Most anglers have been telling me they've caught stripers around deep rock walls and points.
