Contra Loma Reservoir Fishing Report

Contra Loma Reservoir - Antioch, CA (Contra Costa County)

by East Bay Regional Park District


Reminder to boaters: All watercrafts (including float tubes) need to have a wearable Coast Guard approved personal floatation device (PFD) per person. Children age 12 and under must wear personal floatation device (PFD) while the vessel is underway.

Catfish have been biting and fishing from a boat has proven to be successful.

Bluegill and Black Bass have been good all the way around the reservoir.


Trout fishing has been slow for the summer. We would suggest that tiger tail lures in pink or yellow would be the best lures to try! Try using Powerbait or nightcrawlers as well.


Try fishing for catfish at Channel Point or Loma Island with anchovies, nightcrawlers or chicken livers. Boaters have been doing well toward the middle of the reservoir or along the dam.


Black Bass have been biting with artificial baits/lures or nightcrawlers anywhere around the lake or from boats. We are getting reports of anglers catching bass up to TEN pounds! Both boat anglers and shore-casters are having luck, so keep moving if you are not catching!
