Del Valle Fishing Report

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)

by East Bay Regional Park District


The weather at Del Valle has been beautiful for this time of year. Early mornings in the low-40s with temperatures rising up into the high-60s by midday. The hot bite continues to be trout with many anglers having success.


Catfish are going to be in deeper water, about 20-25 feet deep. The best baits to use would be anchovies, mackerel, or night crawlers.


For trout, most anglers like to use either Powerbait or Powereggs. I would also recommend using either night crawlers or small spinners. Make sure you are fishing shallow sand flats and if you are fishing from a boat, make sure you keep moving.


We are getting reports of largemouth and smallmouth bass being caught in the narrows. Most are small, approximately one to three pounds. Anglers have been biting worms in the narrows.


We are starting to hear a few more reports of people hooking into stripers. Most of the striper action has been centered near the dam.
