Trout fishing has been really good at Lake Chabot with this cold weather. Raccoon Point remains the go-to place and the first dock by the marina is also a popular spot. The trout’s favorite appetizer is mice tails and chartreuse Powerbait.


Bass fishing is slow, but some of our more experienced anglers have been reporting some successes. Many anglers are using plastic worms or swim baits. There has been an abundance of smaller size bass (one or two pounds) being caught all over the lake along the shorelines. Senkos have been the most popular bait to use.
