November, 2016 | Fish Report
What a week!!! Lake Chabot just got a new lake record for Largemouth Bass weighing in at 19 lbs. This was carefully caught and released by Ryan Reynolds of San Mateo fishing near Alder Point. Water temperature remains in the low 60’s and water clarity is about 4 feet visibility. We received a decent amount rain this past week and the visibility of the water should clear up in the next couple of days depending on the weather.
There is still plenty of time to hit your limit and possibly catch the first place fish!
All of our boats are half off Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays, including Patio Boats!!
Catfishing remains fairly good with limits still getting pulled out. With the rain this past week catfishing should pick up a little. Early morning fishing around the island and night fishing near Indian cove and the first dock on the east shore trail is keeping anglers busy. The best bait to use when fishing for catfish is either chicken liver, or mackerel. Make sure to cut 2” inch chunk of mackerel and putting it on a size 1 or 2 hook and half ounce weight works best. A simple trick to use when using this bait is wrapping magic thread around the bait to ensure that it doesn’t fly off when fishing.
Trout fishing is starting to pick up a couple limits have been reported getting caught by the first dock and down by Indian Cove. Using PowerBait especially mice tails has been pretty consistence with catching trout. When setting up make sure to use a sliding sinker set up with a ½ oz weight and at least an 18” leader line. Our last trout plant was on Oct 27th with 1,250 lbs. Water temperature remains at the low 60’s and visibility is about 4 feet. We are expecting another trout plant later on this week. Please follow our facebook page to keep updated on fishing conditions.
Bass fishing had an amazing week here. A new lake record was set her by Ryan Reynolds of San Mateo. He caught an nice 19 lbs. Largemouth Bass fishing near Alder Point using a black jig. He was using a Shimano curado E7, on a Loomis 7’ rod with braided line. This bass was weight on two different hand scales and was carefully released back into the lake. Video and picture of this bass is located on our facebook page. Congrats to Ryan Reynolds on catching this huger whopper size fish. Please practice catch and release for bass, as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!
