New Melones Anglers Report
Kokanee Power once again has come thru this year with another plant of trout for the 2020 fishing season. These healthy 1lb. plus trout were transported from the Moccasin fish hatchery on Nov. 16 and placed in a holding pen to be raised for the next 6 months. In speaking with Jeff from Moccasin hatchery he indicated there were 25000 trout planted at the beginning of the year, and there will be a plant scheduled for Melones in the near future. Trolling for trout in the mail lake using a brown trout pattern at 50-60 ft. depth and trolling at 2.2 mph.
Done for the season.
Most anglers reporting on Bass have reported a challenging bite on the water with small bass and low numbers. Being very unusual for this time of the year, we are anticipating a good bite to be on soon. Using spoons, Pline Lazer minnows and drop shot techniques. Late fall bass on Melones can be found in all water depths from topwater, 30, and 60 ft. making it challenging to pattern them. Most of the big fish we've been coming across have been shallow falling for big Swimbaits and jigs. There have been a few small windows across the lake to find shallow schooling fish typically in the mornings but they are far and few. For the schooling fish a rigs, top water, spy baits, and crank baits have been our best productivity.
No reports of Catfish
Crappie may be far and few between this time of year, but when you find them expect the unexpected which Josh Parris of San Andreas found out last week hauling in a new lake record for Melones, coming in at 3.47 lbs.
