Fishing at Lake Del Valle has been pretty good for Stripers this week. Trout has slowed down because the water is getting warmer and they like the colder water. The Trout can still be caught, you just want to start to fish in deeper water were the water is cooler. The hot spot has been the Lower Narrows and the Dam. Stripers have been biting on Anchovies.
Weather: The weather this past week has been cold in the morning warming up during the day.
 
Clarity of water: The water is very clear visibility is around 6 feet.
Temperature of Lake: 64 Degrees F.
Hot spot: Lower Narrows and the Dam.
 
Bait to use to catch Striped Bass and Catfish is Anchovies or anything that replicates a shad will work as well because they are out chasing and eating shad.
