Fishing at lake del valley has been very good the past few days for rainbow trout, catfish, stripers. Largemouth and smallmouth bass have slowed down going into deeper water, because on the surface the water is cold, and they like warm Water which is in deeper water. Crappie and panfish can also be caught near trees and rocks you would want to use red worms or night crawlers. As many of you might have herd last week we had a plant of MT Lassen lightning trout unfortunately they Are slowly going away most have them have been caught but there are a few still out there lurking so come out and try and get yourself one of these beautiful fish.
