(510) 544-3146

As of October 15th, Marina hours are 6:00am to 6:00pm. It seems fellow Anglers Trout fishing has indeed arrived here at the lake from the east end swim beach throughout the narrows on into the dam area have been yielding in great catches. As the water continues to cool, I can only see the Trout fishing getting better and what a great start we have as of today. The water temperature reamins in around the mid 60's but it's dropping fast with the clarity fairly good. If you plan on boating, early is best. We have also seen a surge in catfish using chicken liver, anchovies, sardines, nightcrawlers and G&S dip bait with J&N Dip Worm. Crappie fishing has been just as good we have had numerious. Anglers catching large amounts on Power Bait White, Chroma-Glow and Chartreuse Crappie Nibblets. We have had some mall mouth bass and large mouth bass caught on Rage Crew, Sinco and Rubber worms. Striped Bass fishing has slowed down a little but still active.
