Del Valle Fishing Report

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)

by East Bay Regional Park District

GENERAL CONDITIONS The weather at Del Valle has been cloudy, with the sun warming through the afternoon. Early mornings in the 50s with temperatures rising up into the low 80s by midday. Water temperature at the dock reads 66-69 degrees.


We are getting a few reports of angler’s having success with catfish. If you are targeting them, we recommend using anchovies, mackerel, night crawlers, or chicken livers. Catfish tend to be in deeper water this time of year, 20+ feet deep.


The lake level is higher, and the staining is subsiding. Most anglers are reporting success with Powerbait or Powereggs, mice tails, and flicker shads. Make sure you are fishing shallow sand flats and if you are fishing from a boat, make sure you keep moving.


Many anglers are catching bass, using any lures or jigs. Keep moving along the shore, near cover. Plastic worms and drop lures seem to do the trick! With the lake level up, and the warming waters and air temperatures, bass should be moving into the shallows to breed the next few weeks, and should make bass fishing at Del Valle great!


We are starting to hear a few more reports of people hooking into stripers. Most of the striper action has been centered near the dam, but some people are having success in the Narrows and near the dock. We recommend diving spoons and lures out by the dam, in deeper water.
