Hey Woody, I fished Del Valle today (2/28/08) in your old boat. It was pretty slow there today for everyone. I toplined some j5 and j7 in rainbow and firetiger for 3 fish from 14" to 20". The temperature went from 52 to 58 so the water is warming up quickly. I marked a lot of fish at 40-60ft but I didn't have the downrigger installed (darn!!!!!). As everyone says, the visibilty is pretty poor and it improves as you get closer to the dam. There were some bankers who did pretty well just using power bait.

I can't make it this weekend as I'm headed to the snow. Good Luck!

I will be there on Friday to scout it out for you. 8-)

Firetrout last week when I was there it seemed that any place you could find deep water with a flat shallow area next to it and then troll through that area in 5 to 10 ft of water you would get bit. With things warming up like they are, you might need to move into a little deeper water maybe 10 to 15 ft. We look forward to your report.

See you on the water

My buddy is going tomorrow with a few friends. They'll be renting a bonton boat from the marina. They hired a guid named Kenny I think, since this is their first time on that lake. Give them a hand guys if you see them. I appreciate it.
My friend's nam is Bun.

I'm going to Livermore on business the 4th-6th Tues-Thurs. Tues I can fish all day. Won't be taking my boat but will take my rods tackle etc.. I would appreciate any suggestions for location, bait, lures off the shore. I am guessing that Del Valle would be the best bet?

Thanks Sniffers
