Here’s a cool canyon reservoir with a lot to offer the Bay Area angler. Lake Del Valle, also referred to as “DV,” is located just ten miles southeast of Livermore, past some wine country and rural life. The water is situated in a wonderful setting of rolling hills, grasslands, and oak woodlands. Turkey, deer, fox, and bobcat are just a few of the creatures residing around the impoundment. Though minutes away from the hectic inner-city scene, Del Valle is a quality outing, inviting a slower pace and tugs on your line. There are plenty of hiking, boating, and year-round camping opportunities for your enjoyment as well. Types of Fish: Largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass; bluegill; rainbow trout, and catfish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
