New Melones Reservoir Fish Report

New Melones Reservoir - Angels Camp, CA

by Nor Cal Fish Reports

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: Okay.  Cooler nights have moved the trout into shallow water and some trolling anglers are starting to bring limits of fish to the boat.  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 top-lining a Rapala JSR plug.  Let out plenty of line to ensure your lure is clear of the boat wake.  Spoons are working well too.  

Bass:  Good.  Once you locate the bait fish you will be able to catch a bunch of bass.  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.Glory Hole Sports  (209) 736-4333
