Lake Del Valle Fishing Report

Del Valle Lake - Livermore, CA (Alameda County)

by Del Valle Marina
(510) 544-3146

Fishing at Lake Del Valle has been rather good this week for Stripers.
Weather: Weather at the lake has been warm, ranging in the high 70’s to 80 degrees. The water surface temperature is 80 degrees.

Clarity of Water: The water is clear around the Marina and the farther you go to the Dam the better the water clarity will get.

Hot spots: The hot spot has been by the Dam Lower Narrows.

What Bait to Use:
Catfish- Chicken Liver, Anchovies, Sardines and Night Crawlers. Catfish tend to not be interested in any lures.
Trout- Power bait, Worms, have been working well. Trout also love lures such as Panther Martins, Kastmaster, Roster Tails, and all types of small Spinners. But as of right now trout are slowing down a lot due to the warm water.
Largemouth/ Smallmouth- Plastic Worms have been a good choice, another good choice is Jigs or Drop Shots.
Crappie/Panfish-  Night Crawlers, Redworms, and little Micro Jigs have been working good as well.

Fish plant on 8/4 from Tsai Enterprises- 600 Catfish
