BEST AREAS FOR TROUT FISHING AND FISHING REPORT IN CONTRA COSTA COUNTIES BEST LAKE!

ALPINE SETTINGS and some nice trout are the big attraction at San Pablo Dam Reservoir in El Sobrante, a Contra Costa County Fishing Lake is OPEN FEBRUARY to NOVEMBER. So, call first for exact days. Use our Lake fishing map below for best areas!
With grass covered slopes meandering to the water’s edge, old growth trees standing shoulder to shoulder at every point of the compass and a lake teeming with rainbow trout, you might think you’ve landed in the Sierra Foothills. It would hardly cross your mind that only a few minutes’ drive away lies the mega-urban sprawl of the Bay Area, its San Pablo Lake- otherwise known as That Dam Lake – is an alpine escape for trout and bass anglers living in or near the big cities.

According to our fish report, the operators of the lake stuff the bejeezers outta the lake every week, 3,600 pounds a shot. The DFG adds more, but you never know when. These stockings consist of trout that average a pound a piece, but 10 percent of each load qualify as whoppers—fish between 5 and 15 pounds – and just where the trout are planted varies to spread out the catching. Our Fishing Map shows where the plants take place.
Boat less anglers or those afloat will find good action at San Pablo Lake. The shore anglers will find their odds of battling trout just as good as the boaters’. Different techniques will apply, but expect strikes on both baits and artificials.
BEST AREAS: Big Point, Big Slide and Main Rec as areas with big reputations for pegging your trout, but right now these aren’t your top picks. In the early spring,  target the Pines or Oaks picnic areas as prime trout turf. Our fishing report notes that plants occur at the main launch ramp, near Main Rec and, when road conditions permit, near the dam. Points and obstructions are best for bass fishing.

ROD BENDERS: Power Bait provides more bent rods than any other bait.. Go with chartreuse or rainbow with glitter. Night crawlers will knock ’em dead too; be sure to aerate them and slather the worm with a scented oil. You can’t use minnows here. Anglers rarely use crickets for bait, but the little buggers are simply trout slayers and may be the key you seek. Be sure to use your two-rod stamp and double your chances of a hook-up. You’ll want to rig up with a slip sinker, and go with fluorocarbon leader as the ultimate setup.
