We recommend fishing with Powerbait, lures, or nightcrawlers for the trout.  Anglers are catching small size trout at the boat ramp area using pink/green colored lures.  The large whopper size trout are biting near the Swim Lagoon or west dock with white mice tail or garlic scented Powerbait.  


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.


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!
