Fishing at Lake Del Valle has been very good the past few days for Rainbow Trout, Catfish. 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.

Weather: The past few days the mornings have been cold, but it warms up throughout the day.

Clarity of water: Murky about 4-foot visibility near the Marina, once you get past the Lower Narrows it clears up and it is about a 10-foot visibility.
