TROUT

Trout fishing has slowed down as the water temperature increased and we prepare to start stocking catfish for the summer.
We recommend fishing with Powerbait, lures, or nightcrawlers for the trout. Try fishing at the boat ramp area, or the Channel Point dock areas. Right now the trout seem to be congregating near the swim lagoon.

CATFISH

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

BASS

The black bass population at Contra Loma is thriving with lots of large bass in the lake! They will bite at artificial lures and baits, and they tend to chase the stocked trout, so a good swimming lure that resembles a trout should help you hook into some of the bass in the lake.

Please practice catch and release for bass as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!
