New Melones Reservoir Fish Report

New Melones Reservoir - Angels Camp, CA

by Nor Cal Fish Reports

Trout fishing is fair.  The bite has picked up with most anglers catching a few fish and some nice limits on each outing.  The cooler nights and shorter days will help cool the water temperature.  This should make the trout more active and easier to catch.  The shad will be starting to school in the main lake near the mouths of major creek arms.  Try fishing over deep water near the dam, spillway, and Rose Island.  Trolling anglers try using shad patterned spoons.  Excels, Needlefish, and Speedy Shiners are all good choices. Bass bite is improving. The bite has been getting better each day due to cooler weather.  Generally the top water bite is good at this time of year but right now we are getting very few surface blow ups.  Most fish are being caught on a variety of soft plastic presentations.  A Carolina rig, Texas rig, dart head, and drop shot are all good ways to catch them.  Glory Hole Sports  (209) 736-4333
