East Bay Lakes Roundup- Del Valle

Written By: Dan Bacher, February 20, 2014
Species: Landlocked Stripers Trout Bass
Location: Del Valle Reservoir,

Fishing at Lake Del Valle hasn't been at its best with the rain and wind coming through, but the badly needed precipitation is welcomed by everybody. Water level has rose a couple feet with water temperatures still cold at 47 degrees at Lake Del Valle

“Drifting and casting and retrieving along the Lower Narrows and East Beach seems to work best for trout,” reported Ashley Loschter at Lake Del Valle. “They are hitting Kastmasters, Micetails, and bright colored PowerBait.”

“A few catfish have been reported being caught on anchovies or chicken liver in the south end of the lake,” she stated. “Large and smallmouth bass have been reported biting off deep diving crankbaits and bass jjigs along the rock walls in the Narrows.”

“No stripers have been reported this week but, your best bet is to try swimbaits or anchovies in Swallow Bay and the Lower Narrows,” she disclosed.

Carl Ludwig from Fremont caught a stringer of 2 trout and 1 smallmouth bass weighing a total of 8.96 lbs. on Power Eggs at the East Beach,” said Loschter.

Marcos Mendoza from San Jose caught a 7.27 lb. trout on a Kastmaster at the East Beach. Dennis Choi from San Jose landed a 7.56 lb. trout while soaking a Power Egg with a nightcrawler at the East Beach.

Phabian Warren from Livermore nailed a 7.38 lb. rainbow on a Kastmaster at the East Beach. Gary Wong from Fremont caught a 3.85 lb. rainbow on a Kastmaster at the West Beach.
