    • Report: From DVL Marina
      The water here at Diamond Valley is almost glass flat. Here are some tips for fishing when the water is so calm.
      Keep your distance - try to stay as far back as possible when targeting bass in calm water
      Go natural - present natural looking baits
      Speed up - when it’s calm, there’s nothing to obscure the bass’ view, so you'll want to manufacture an obstructed view by fishing fast
      Quiet down - without any wind creating background noise, it’s important to fish as quiet as possible because bass' hearing is heightened too when the water is calm
      Come on down to Diamond Valley Lake ! We're open until 5:30pm
