I will be in the Redwood Hieghts area of Oakland over the holidays and was hoping that someoe could help me out. I would like to do some fresh water fishing but have never been there before. I live in Woodland Hills which is in So. Cal

Hey, I grew up in the east bay and know the surrounding lakes pretty well. If your in oakland the closest lake would probably be lake chabot in Castro Valley about 10 minutes away. They have some good trout action around this time of year. My favorite lake in the area is Los Vaqueros lake in Brentwood Livermore area probably a 45 minute drive from oakland but worth it. Always constant action NEVER been skunked there. Pm me if you go to one of these lakes or surrounding lakes and i can give you some spots. Also check out http://www.norcalfishing.com for fishing conditions.
