New Melones Reservoir Fish Report

New Melones Reservoir - Angels Camp, CA


by Nor Cal Fish Reports
11-26-2014

The water temperature continues to cool with the average being 62-66 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:  Good.  Most anglers that are targeting trout have been catching some healthy 2-pound rainbows.  The water temperature continues to drop and the trout are moving toward the surface making them much easier to find and catch.  Once the temperature drops into the mid-50's the fishing will be wide open for both trolling anglers and bank anglers.  The shad are schooling in the main lake and on the outside of the major creek channels.  The trout are feeding heavily on small 1" to 2" shad.  Trolling anglers have been finding most of their luck top-lining a Rapala JSR plug or fishing shad patterned spoons in 10-20' of water. Shore fishing has been slow. Bass: Very Good.  The fall bass bite has been really good for numbers and for big fish as well.  It is not uncommon to catch 30-60 fish in a day.  Most fish are in the 1 to 2-pound range with an occasional 3 to 4-pound fish showing up.  Spooning has been a go to method to catch these fish that are gorging on schools of shad.  Try using a 3/8 to 3/4oz spoon fished alongside submerged tree, outside bends and rock bluffs. Catfish: Very Good.  Just a few more days left in our Fall Catfish Contest.  We have a full field of 50 entries signed up so we can guarantee 1st place will be $250, 2nd place will be $150 and 3rd will get $100.  Plus we will be drawing raffle tickets for a bunch a great prizes.  We have had some recent rain and hope for more in the forecast.  Each year the bigger cats will move up during the rain and feed in areas that have fresh water coming into them.  The fresh water will wash nutrients and insects into the lake. This will attract crawdads and small fish.  The big cats will move up and feed on these smaller creatures.  Try using frozen fish baits fished in shallow water.
