Del Valle can be great fishing from the bank. When the water is up south of the marina is usually good. Many folks hike or ride bikes and go north along the lake.

Duxunlimited- the name fits... must have been dumping rain based on what was happening in the bay area...

Johnny- It sure was, there was about two hours that were nice and then it started dumping. It was pretty nice because there wern't alot of people out today. But the fishing was bad. Might try SC or LV later this week.

Don't forget today is half price Wednesday for boat rentals and they planted yesterday.

I might violate doctor's orders and get some fresh air.

this weekend is supposed to be pretty nice, all sun and no rain fri, sat and Sunday..... and i heard that someone said the lake is almost full? ive never been there before, so from where you park at how far of a walk is the marina? sounds like its one of the best spots when the water level is up...

Fish crippler the walk to the marina area or just South of the marina is very short walk 100 yards or so. This weekend might be a little tough due to water clarity. I am planning on making a trip up there this afternoon just to look at the water and see if I want to go up tomorrow or not. I will post my findings later today.

I look forward to your report Woody. i just had my Prop resurfaced and am planning a pre-Del Valle fest trip for Sunday. anxious to see how the south end looks after this rain.

On a side note, i took my prop to Boatmasters in Livermore to have the prop work done, cost me 90 bucks and only took 7 days and it is PERFECT, better than new, hand turned and hand balanced, they added some metal where needed and painted it like new. It was not in good shape before, it looked like the previous owner chopped a down a small forest with it.

Kudos to Boatmasters for thier great service and fast turnaround

Gate opens at 7 now, I assume next week it will open at 6. You can stay until I believe 10 if you aren't camping.

There are two months that DV opens at 7:00am, Dec. & Jan., the other months they open at 6:00am unless the person who opens is late. ;)
