Where would the Best trout fishing be at Lake Chabot. The last time I went there as a kid I didn't catch anything.

I've been having good luck lately at Indian cove for cats. It's only about a 1/4 mile from the parking lot.

For trout, I like to go by the dam. Of course, it's a far walk, so take your dam bike.

Trout fishing at Chabot kinda sucks right now.. they haven't planted since mid June and won't plant until early September....

What do you guys suggest for catfish at chabot chicken livers or nightcrawlers?

Just called the marina they said chicken liver's a good choice, but mackerel's the best right now

Crawlers or some of the special stinky catfish bait that comes in a jar

Anchovies, mackeral, chicken liver all work good for me. I also like shrimp.

For trout, you should try Quarry lake in Union City. It seems like they plant it all year round. Of course, you'll need the "special" sauce to catch the fish. If you get lucky, you might get one of the locals tell you what it is.
