New Melones Anglers Report
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.
KOKANEEDone for the season
BASSIn 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.
