Del Valle Lake Fishing Report

Del Valle Lake Fishing Report

Del Valle Marina
(510) 544-3146

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.

Weather: Has been the same the past few days cold in the morning and warms up throughout the day.

Clarity of water: Murky about 4-foot visibility near the Marina, once you get past the Lower Narrows it clears up and it is about a 10-foot visibility.
