New Melones Reservoir Fish Report

New Melones Reservoir - Angels Camp, CA

The lake is clear, to slightly stained. There is debris floating on the surface, which is a good sign the lake has turned over. The middle ramp on Glory Hole Point is open, which makes for an easy walk.

Trout fishing is good. Trolling anglers should try fishing near the surface with large shad patterned plugs. Top-lining plugs is a great way to locate fish. Try using Rapalas, Speed Traps, and Rattle Traps.  Spoons are working well also. Try using Needlefish (003 size), Excels, Kastmasters, and Speedy Shiners. Also shad patterned (natural) colored baits work best on clear days, and fire tiger (bright) colored baits work best on cloudy/rainy days.  Bank fishing should be great this next week. The water temperature has dropped and the big bows will be moving in shallow and swimming the shore line. There has been a lot of surface activity in the calm wind protected coves. A great way to catch these fish that are feeding on the surface is with a bubble and a fly.

Bass fishing has slowed. The bait has been hard to locate making the bass seem to spread out more. Focus on primary and secondary points leading to and from the back of the major creek arms. Try using baits that cover water, and resemble shad. Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and lip-less cranks, should do the trick.Glory Hole Sports  (209) 736-4333
