Lake Del Valle Fish Report

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)

by Del Valle Marina
(510) 544-3146

There was a little more activity this week with Catfish and the trout are starting to bite. The lake is a little lower than last week, but fisherman have been taking advantage of the new shoreline to bait fish for Trout and Catfish. Temperature is 68 degrees ans clarity is about two feet. Stripers are boiling on the baitfish over in the Narrows and a few coves. Top water, jerk baits or swim baits in a variety of sizes is what's going to give you a chance to catch them. Catfish are biting on anchovies or Chicken liver out by the Dam area, Heron Bay or Swallow Bay. Few fisherman are hooking up Largemouth and Smallmouth and the ones that do are using different techniques this time, such as Carolina rigging. There's a little bit of Trout here and there but any big ones yet; they should be picking up soon. There was a plant at the Dam of Mt. Lassen on October 24 of 500 lbs. Good luck everyone!
