Labor day is behind us and the local regular fishermen are back on the water. Water temps are still warm 80-84 d. and water levels have receded a slight amount, 1 ft. in the last 8 days. Current water elevation sits at 1055.85 and 32 ft from full.

Trout anglers have been bringing in the stringers all summer, as John Harmon from Sacramento showed us this morning bringing in a nice limit weighing in from 2.0 to 4 lb 9 oz. John was fishing Carson Creek, and main lake using spoons in front of a swarm patterned dodger with shad scent. He was trolling 65-100 ft. deep.

The Catfish are active and hitting all kinds of cut baits...Anchovies, Mackerel, Sardines, and chicken livers. Dave Zahniser and John Wilson put some nice cats on the boat using chicken livers, reporting they were fishing a secret (Angels Cove) area using chicken livers. This nice stringer weighed in bet. 5 and 7 lbs.

Crappie

Melones Crappie continue to be caught in the Angels Cove area along shoreline,. Tubejigs in white, and pearl are working for these nice panfish. Dropping a live minnow down 30 ft. with a split shot is another good method.

Bass

Look for Bass in Carson Creek, Angels Cove and you'll have a productive fishing outing using poppers. You can change it up and go to a deeper presentation using Arkie jigs along rock ledges and trees down 20-30 ft.
