New Melones Reservoir Fish Report

New Melones Reservoir - Angels Camp, CA

The water is starting to clear up due to stable and rising water. The average water temperature is 72-76 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: Slow.  The nights are cooling off and the surface temperature continues to drop, which will encourage the trout to move toward the surface.  The large rainbows will feed heavily on shad.  There is an abundance of smaller one to two inch shad that the fish a spitting up.  Trolling anglers try using tandem spoons trolled in 25-45' water.  It is a good time to use ball trolls to resemble a school of shad.  Umbrella rigs work great attached to the downrigger ball.  To target the large browns try rolling shad or using a large billed plug.  Another thing to keep in mind is the water clarity.  Bright colored baits or baits with rattles will attract fish in stained water better than lighter more natural patterned baits. Bass: Good.  The lake level has been stable for a couple weeks, which has made the bass more predictable. The bass are in a late summer/early fall pattern.  The shad are schooled up in the deep water and the bass are hunting them in wolf packs.  Shad patterned worms, grubs and small swim baits have been working extremely well for fish holding tight to structure and for fish that are suspended in deeper water.
