I am a newcomer and am looking for advice for Lake Del Valle. I plan on renting a boat this Thursday 6/11 and hoping tp catch some trout. My wife and I are novice and are looking to just toss in the power bait. Does anyone reccomend a power bait and locations for trout in Del Valle?

There are some good spots for powerbait, right by the launch ramp by the buoy out there, also down the lake a little towards the dam, there is a ground campground and bathrooms with a few shelfs. Also maybe try badger cove, a long cove in swallow bay.

Best advice I can give you is do a search on these boards, it has been discussed many times good spots/techniques, etc.

head to the dam. fish in front of the damn of the right side, tie the boat off the rocks and cast out aboyt 25 feet.

left side is good too but I have had better luck on the right. bring some different color powerbait. green and salmon egg flavor has worked wel for me in the past.
