East Bay Lakes Roundup- Los Vaqueros

Species: Landlocked Stripers Trout Bass
Location: Los Vaqueros Reservoir,

Trout action picked up at Los Vaqueros Reservoir after the lake received a plant of 1,000 pounds of rainbows on Wednesday, May 28

“The South Cove is the hot spot,” said Erik Eberstein of Los Vaqueros Marina. “Anglers are finding the top action while tossing out chartreuse, rainbow garlic and corn PowerBait and Kastmasters.”

Big trout honors go to local angler, Norm, who caught and released an 8.9 lb. rainbow while fly fishing in Cox Cove. Jim Kouns of Union City also landed a 5.3 lb. rainbow while bait fishing.

The striped bass fishing also continues to be good, with some anglers reporting limits of striper while tossing out cut anchovies, jigs, swimbaits and top water lures.

“Craig Leong and his family members landed four limits of stripers ranging from 20 to 23 inches while fishing anchovies from a rental boat,” said Eberstein.

However, the most exciting catch of the past two weeks was the 15.7 lb. catfish that Phoung Nguyen of Milpitas fooled with an anchovy off the bank.

“Not many anglers are fishing for black bass, but Alex caught and released an 8 lb. largemouth while fishing a nightcrawler in the South Cove,” said Eberstein.

The lake is 90 percent of capacity and the surface water temperature is 61 degrees.
