#13264, "Any good streams to fish within 1 hour of East Bay?"


          

Hi there,

Relatively new to fishing. I'm out in Fremont, CA. Does anyone
know of any good streams to fish in that area? The only place
I've been to so far is Quarry Lakes here in Fremont, but the
action is a little slow out there. I like lure-fishing, and I
notice most of the guys out there are angling. 

I've not been to too many places yet, so any ideas/comments
would be appreciated.

Thanks.

-- anthony

You might try Coyote Creek in Santa Clara.  Details on where,
etc can be found on the Santa Clara County Park web site: 
[url]http://parkhere.org[/url]
 
I haven't fished it (yet) and wouldn't eat anything from it
without checking with the rangers (some of the Santa Clara
waters are mercury-polluted).  But if you're doing
catch-n-release, it doesn't matter.
 
Is Sacramento too far away for you?  There are some rivers up
that way with allegedly good fishing (I haven't tried them
yet...too far for my lazy butt to drive).

There are plenty of lakes to fish in besides the Quarry if
you're tired of it (and can't find a decent stream).  Del
Valle, Shadow Cliffs, Chabot, Los Vaqueros, Anderson, Calero,
Loch Lomond, Uvas, Coyote Lakeplenty of others (some are
pretty close to you - Grant Park, Levin Park).
 

Eternal rookie

Cool, thanks. Think I'll check it out.

It'd be nice to catch something (anything!). THEN I'll worry
about eating it or not.

Yeah, me too. Don't feel like dealing with the weekend traffic
on I-80.

some of these places.

You could try Alameda creek in Niles Canyon. I know DFG used
to stock trout in there, maybe still do. It would be a good
idea to check the latest regs since I haven't fished it in
many years.
