Trout fishing is has been good at Lake Chabot with this cool weather. Raccoon Point remains the go-to place and the first dock by the marina is a popular spot. Lake Chabot received a plant the week of April 23rd and the week of April 30th, and is scheduled for another plant of trout the week of May 21st.


Bass fishing is slow, but some of our more experienced anglers have been reporting some successes. With May coming in, that means warmer weather and warmer water temperatures! The bass should start to be coming up into the shallows to breed. 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.
