Lake Del Valle Fishing Report


October 18, 2013


The water temperature is 68 degrees at the end of the dock. Fishing hasn’t changed very much from this week to last week; with weather still cooling off. Striper bite has slowed down best thing to throw out is Anchovies, Sardines, Worms, or Jigs. Topwater lures, Crank-baits, and Jerk-baits still haven’t really been getting their attention as much. Hetch Hetchy and the Lower Narrows are the best places to fish for Stripers. The Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass bite has slowed down even more this week, you need to really go looking for them using Rat-L-Traps and Lipless Crank-baits out at Swallow and Heron Bay are best places to try for Bass. When fishing for Catfish try using Chicken Livers or Anchovies in the Lower Narrows and South End near the down trees. Trout bite still picking up and they are surfacing in the mornings and evenings; best thing to throw out are Crank-baits and other steady retrieving lures, Power-bait, and Night Crawlers. Brighter colored Powerbait such as rainbow or chartreuse is what works the best right now is the East beach. There has also been luck down the dog run trail near the lower narrows for those who don’t mind a little bit of a walk.
