Fish Report January 7, 2022New Melones Reservoir
BY : Gene Hildebrand
 
 
New Melones Reservoirs' current water level is 935.30 and is up from the low of 916.5 posted mid October. Melones is down 152.70 ft. from full, leaving the lake sitting about 39 % of capacity. With the recent rains in Northern California, there may be some debri floating on the water. We should anticipate the middle ramp at Glory Hole Point to open up for launching boats sometime in mid March with the current inflow.  Please keep your family, dogs, and crew safe with safe boating practice. ANYONE 35 years old or younger is required to have a California Boating Card on board any vessel they are navigating. Water temperature is 53d. For the weekend warrior planning to camp out, Tuttletown has Acorn open and Glory Hole Point has Ironhorse and Big Oaks campgrounds open. Dump stations @ Glory Hole and Tuttletown are also open. Reservations are required for camping. Contact www.recreation.gov. New Melones Lake Marina is closed for the season.

TROUT
 
 
 
Moccasin fish hatchery has completed several trout plants on New Melones in the last two months with a estimated 20 thousand pounds, along with Brown Trout. The plants have had time to spread out on the lake, trolling and bank fishing will bring action. To target Browns and holdovers, rolling shad is a great way to troll. An easy way to rig shad is using a double hook rig with one hook in the mouth and the treble hook in the side of the bait. Dan Holly and Don Cady showing their two limits from New Melones.
 
KOKANEE
Done for the season
 
BASS
In the late fall and early winter is one of the best times to hook up on some lunkers. Anglers watch your side scan, and down scan on the water looking for the shad the bass are targeting this time of year. The bass are generally between 7 ft. and 40 ft. Spoons and other lures in a shad-patterned should work. Anglers are also doing well drop shot style. With nearly 20 thousand pounds of trout plants coming from Moccasin fish hatchery in the last 6 weeks, make sure you have a swim bait tied on your rod.
 
CATFISH
None reported
 
CRAPPIE
Look for Crappie in coves with some kind of cover, stumps and rocky ledges. There are a variety of Crappie Cranks that work well. Using a Kalins 1/8 oz. jighead with a Seps grub on a slow retrieve should produce strikes.
