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