Regional Fishing Reports
NEW Resolution Passed (Sec. 404.3): NO SMOKING on EBRPD property, including all piers, parks & trails.ATTENTION BOATERS - Mandatory Boat Inspections
(including motorboats, rowboats, kayaks, canoes and float tubes)
To prevent invasive Zebra and Quagga mussel infestation,
the East Bay Regional Park District is performing mandatory boat inspections.
All watercraft must be "clean and dry" to pass inspection.
Standing water or water from the motor being lowered means the craft will fail inspection.
Failing inspection means the craft will not be allowed to launch,
AND results in a 5-day quarantine period before another inspection.
Boat inspections are performed at the following lakes:
Lake Chabot, Del Valle, Quarry Lakes, Contra Loma.
Mandatory personal watercraft inspections will be required at
Shadow Cliffs starting October 1st, 2016.
Intact bands will expedite launching at the above lakes.
There are no bands or inspections at Shadow Cliffs.
