  • Report: This LARGEMOUTH MONSTER weighing in at a hearty 16.6 lbs. was carefully caught and released by Ian Cornelius of Castro Valley on September 14, 2015. Cornelius reported it was caught near Alder Point using roboworms. A half pound shy of the lake record, this is one of the biggest bass caught here at Lake Chabot in over 10 years. Our current lake record is held by Louis Vasquez from 2002 for a bass weighing in at 17 lbs.


    From Lake Chabot
    Bass fishing has been steady for the last several weeks with some bass anglers catching and releasing good numbers. Reports of bass from 1 lbs. to 4 lbs. are coming in daily. If you are fishing for bass, the early mornings and the evenings are best and they bite mostly on plastics, jigs, hula grubs and top water. If you do want to try your luck a couple good spots to fish for bass are near the island or in bass cove.

    Please practice catch and release for bass, as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!

    Report: rented a boat and started at the island. Threw a 8" swimbait, made 10 casts before boating a 5# lmb. Continued to fish the island before heading for bass cove. Spotted 2 bald eagles on the way and fished bass cove for 2 hours. Lots of vegetation and algae with lots of bass fry. Missed a 3-4 lber but Bass Cove had a lot of activity: boils and fish jumping.

    Tips: Chabot is a tough lake, get there early!
