Lake Del Valle Fishing Report

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)

by Del Valle Marina
(510) 544-3146

Great weather great fishing and the catching has been good to. Come wet your line with a little bait and worms, fishing at the dam and dropping your line between 20 and 30 feet has been bringing so nice limits of trout. Catfish are on the bite eating just about everything, anchovies, nightcrawlers and livers- all are prime. Plastic bait worms have been working for the smallmouth bass while the 4-inch Berkley power worms are enticing the largemouth bass. We are still getting reports of the stripers being caught trolling through the narrows and saw some nice sizes. We also have boat tours on Saturday and Sundays at 1pm and 3pm. Come on up and enjoy your great park and lake.

Rate of action over the past week:

Bass: Good
Bluegill: Fair
Carp: Poor
Catfish: Excellent
Crappie: Fair
Striper: Excellent
Trout: Good
