Our friends at Lake Del Valle, in the East Bay Area in Livermore, provided their latest fishing report:
Lake Del Valle Fishing Report February 6, 2014
This last week fishing hasn’t been at its best with the rain and wind
coming through. Water level has rose a couple feet with water
temperatures still cold at 47 degrees. Drifting and cast and retrieve
along the Lower Narrows and East Beach seems to work best for Trout.
They are hitting Kastmasters, Micetails, and bright colored PowerBait.
A few catfish have been reported being caught on anchovies or chicken
livers in the South End of the Lake. Large and smallmouth bass have
been been reported biting off deep diving crankbaits and bass jigs
along the rock walls in the Narrows. No stripers have been reported
this week but best bet is to try swimbaits or anchovies in Swallow Bay
and Lower Narrows.
