Contra Loma Reservoir Fishing Report

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

by East Bay Regional Park District


The dock and ramp repairs are completed and the reservoir is currently being filled! Boats are now able to use the Ramp and Dock!

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.

Bluegill and other sunfish have been biting on lures and worms. They are being caught all around the lake!


We had our first trout plant of the season this month, so trout fishing should begin to grow! 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.


Catfishing has slowed down now that they are no longer being stocked. 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. Both boat anglers and shore-casters are having luck, so keep moving if you are not catching!

Micetails seem to be their preferred bait although you can get them on a nightcrawler or Powerbait, lure fishing for trout is still spotty though. We have received one plant of...... Read More
