Update from Josalin Coulter from the Bay Area’s Lake Del Valle:

We got a little rain here in the middle of the week but before that fisherman were catching trout. Clarity ranges from 4 feet over by East Beach to the Narrows and 10 feet from Swallow Bay and out and the temperature is 65 degrees. The best spot for trout would be the East Beach and if that is too crowded for you the Narrows by Hetch Hetchy would be a good spot to try too. Night crawlers, power bait, power eggs in bright or garlic scented colors is what they have been using. Also flies may give you some luck, too. Stripers occasionally boil in the mornings or afternoons but the big ones will take those swim baits or big top waters in a trout pattern. Catfishing has come to a standstill of nothing and bass fishing has depleted in activity. There was a plant on Nov. 19 of 1,000 pounds of trout from Mt. Lassen.
