Calveras.
Some spots to consider: (no pun intended)
Picnic point, Striper ridge, North and south road beds, 181 coves, Corvina cove.

Just look for the boats and you'll know pretty quick where the reds are.
Don't worry, everyone else is doing the same thing, and if those guides see you catch a fish it won't be long they'll be trolling all around you!

I haven't fished out there in a while so I can only give you a general idea on what to use, and that would be live talapia. If you have a castnet you can catch plenty around the shoreline or off the boat docks mainly before sunrise, and you'll also catch shad, but the Talapia stay alive and kicking so it's the preferred bait.
As for lures, you can go with spoons, swim baits, rattle traps, and diving baits, but any shad imitations will work.
There's a telephone pole sticking out of the water not far off the bank directly across from the boat launch, and that is near the old submerged roadbed.....I call that "Potlicker Point" as that is where you'll usually see a fleet of boats trolling and sitting on anchor over the roadbed.
