New Melones Reservoir Fish Report

New Melones Reservoir - Angels Camp, CA


by Nor Cal Fish Reports
11-5-2014

Water temperature continues to cool with the average being 66-70 degrees.  Tuttletown launch is closed. Glory Hole Point boat launch is the road leading off the end of the point.  It is a dirt launch without courtesy docks and 4wd is recommended.

Trout: Fair.  Cooler nights have moved the trout into shallow water and some trolling anglers are starting to catch them.  It would not be a bad idea to use leadcore line or try top-lining. The large rainbows will feed heavily on shad.  There is an abundance of smaller one to two inch shad that the fish are spitting up.  Trolling anglers try using small spoons trolled in tandem.  Excel Spoons and Needlefish in shad patterns will work in clear water and brighter colors will work well if there is a little stain. Bass:  Good.  The fishing has been a little hit and miss, but once you locate the bait fish you will be able to catch a bunch of bass nearby that are feeding on them.  Spooning and drop-shotting are two great methods that can be used to catch fish that are keying on balls of shad.  Mack's Sonic Baitfish, Kastmasters and Duh Spoons are good choices when selecting spoons.  Smaller spoons have been working best.  Roboworms and Berkley Minnows have been producing fish on a drop shot rig.  The shad are moving from deep water toward shallow cuts and pockets, the bass are hunting them in wolf packs.  There are a lot of fish that are suspended in 35-55 feet of water.
