Shadow Cliffs Fishing Report

Shadow Cliffs Reservoir - Pleasanton, CA (Alameda County)

by East Bay Regional Park District


Fish plants have increased recently and so has the number of anglers at Shadow Cliffs.

Water Temperature: 62 degrees, depending on depth.

Water Clarity: Visibility seems to vary between 10-15 feet.

Water Level: Water levels are very high at Shadow Cliffs and portions of the path along the lake is under water. This is making it difficult to access the first dock without waders.


The lake has been stocked with Mt Lassen Rainbow Trout every week, for the past five or six weeks. However, anglers report that the trout bite is slow with the trout going down to 40 feet deep.
