Lake Del Valle is a fishing paradise
Avatar of emintz

Lake del valle stands out among the Bay Area freshwater fisheries as one of the most diverse and well maintained bodies of water within a reasonable distance from the central and South Bay. Right off the bat, the sheer number of species available to catch is unique for any body of water. Anglers can catch sturgeon, channel catfish, DFG and Mount Lassen trout, big striped bass, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, 2 types of crappie, bluegill, and even the occasional salmon. Lake facilities are plentiful and well maintained and include a bait shop and boat rentals, boat launch ramp, camp grounds, picnic areas, and lots of trails with good shoreline access. The lake stays well stocked throughout the cooler months with large cold-water Mount lassen trout and channel catfish in the warmer months. Fishing strategies vary by time of year, but in general the shallow end of the lake where the stream enters is good for freshly stocked trout and catfish, and the deeper “narrows” are good for holdover fish and trout as they migrate to cooler waters. The staff at the bait shop are knowledgeable and will inform you of the productive locations, baits, and strategies. All in all, this lake is a gem in the Bay Area and do your part to upkeep this lake for years to come: clean up after yourself and others and respect the wildlife!

I hit up lake chabot as often as I can. Mainly fish from the bank and hit up spots between alder point and the boat house. I’ve had luck and have caught some good size bass but also get skunked plenty. Not sure when or where they spawn and I thought this platform wouldn’t be a bad place for bass fisherman to communicate and share current and local info about the lake. WDYT?
