New Melones Lake level in the last 30 days has dropped 3.33 ft. currently at 1041.05. Latest word on and off the lake is hot hot hot, so you may as well be on the lake to take advantage of a cool dip in the water. Recreational boaters are enjoying days on the lake, anglers are taking up fishing the late afternoons into the night.

We like to promote catch and release on New Melones. If you do so, provide us a picture and bring it in for a copy or email it to us at gloryholesports@yahoo.com so we can put it on the board or in the newsletter.

Anglers FYI: For anyone with a potential lake record please call us at the store and hopefully we can send someone to weigh, photograph and measure the catch at the lake. GHS is the unofficial recorder of lake records for New Melones, and we understand there is sometimes conflicting interest in the welfare of the catch, whether or not to release the potential record, sacrificing your place as a record holder for the lake.

We do promote catch and release. For potential lake records, record the statistics of the fish... length, girth, weight and photographed at the lake before releasing her. If indeed we can verify the information that is provided, such as a witness, comparing the scale used with ours, a photograph with the fish hanging from the scale and can see the scale weight, etc...then we can accept this as proof. If your catch has expired than indeed bring it in to GHS so we can record it here, and you can have it mounted!

TROUT

Look for Rainbow Trout deeper in the water column where the water is cooler for them, 50-85 ft. deep. You can drop worms fishing at night and still hookup some nice size as Glory Hole Sports customers Dave Hylton, and Brian Bashcker show us, angling at 12:00 A.M. using live bait. This crew likes taking advantage of cooler nights and bring their catch in for weigh-in and pictures in the morning. Being nocturnal they probably sleep all day and return to the lake with boat in tow once the sun goes down for more angling! They hooked up by the spillway.
