I think you should really try out Chabot. They are basically stocking it like crazy

The guy at Castro Valley bait shop,said that Don Castro has been kicking out some trout as well as cat fish. Let us know if you go. Its not to far from my house! ;D

It was nice meeting you to hstubble. I will be going to don castro sometime in the near future and let you know how I do. I didnt catch anything at Chabot today. I fished Indian Cove and had one bite all day...

I would say Del Valle but Im a *little bit broke..

On that note do you have a parking pass? It's good for one year from the date of purchase and gets you into any EBRP. I think it's around $50.00-$70.00.....I get one that includes a dog pass so I'm not really sure what your's would be.

I dont. where would I get one from? thats part of the reason I dont go to del valle as much as I would like to. Unlike most other lakes, theres no way to park on the street and walk in. I just might get one...

You can get one at any EBRP, just ask them when they are on duty. I imagine that you could probably do it on-line also. I've bought a year pass at Shadow Cliffs from the kiosk and they gave me a temporary pass untill I got the real deal in the mail. Once you get one you'll get a mailer before the pass expires so you can renew via the mail. Pretty slick and you'll save money in the long run.

The pass isn't good for San Pablo, that's not an EBRP.

You can also buy a year pass that lets you park and fish at all East Bay Parks. $250 for parking and fishing. (less if you are a senior)

Folks here forgot to mention Half Moon Bay!


;D ;D ;D

It's a great place to take little ones and to mess around with new flies in the large pond. I've taken my daughter there just because it's a few miles from home, but, wouldn't fish it myself ;D
