Lake Del Valle Fishing Report

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)

by Del Valle Marina
(510) 544-3146

Cold weather has dropped the lake temp to 58 degrees. Today and yesterday were almost in the 70's so that threw the fish off a little bit. Trout are starting to be caught all over the lake on Power Bait, Lures and Night Crawlers.

Striped Bass are still bangin but only in the early morning and evenings. You can catch them on bait in the midday though. Two monster stripes were caught on Anchovies this week and I'm expecting to see more after the Stripes are done spawning.

Catfish can still be caught on bait on the sand bars out on the lake.

Large and Smallmouth Bass are becoming harder to catch as the temp drops, but that doesn’t mean you can’t catch them. Try drop shotting a robo worm or a rubber crawdaddy.

Thank you and good luck -Dan
