New Melones Reservoirs' current water level is 924.75 and down 163.20 ft. from full, leaving the lake sitting about 37 % of capacity. Some good news, water releases have been lower the last couple weeks with a 3" average lake level drop per day compared to the last 3 months of 9" to 12" per day. Water temperature is 78d. With Labor Day come and gone, another summer is quickly coming to an end September 22. ANYONE 40 or younger is required to have a California Boating Card on board any vessel they are navigating. 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 open.

TROUT
 
Late summer the trout bite has gone deeper, with most trout being caught 40-80 ft. deep and trolling. Seems like the go to for trolling trout has been nightcrawlers trailing a blade or flasher. Below Lee & Patricia Fitzgerald of Forest Meadows landed a 3.5 lb. holdover using a crawler and trolling at the mouth of the dam.
 
Locals Dan Holley and Don Cady were once again hitting the trout on New Melones, landing 6 while trolling from the spillway to the dam.

BASS
With plenty of hilltops and points coming out of the water, opportunity is wide open on bass fishing. Early morning and late evening, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, poppers, and whopper ploppers cast into shadows or wind driven ripples on the water. Hilltops for a dropshot presentation..
 
CATFISH
This time of year plenty of anglers are targeting the large catfish that slip under cover in the coves. Cutbaits such as Mackrel, Sardines, or Anchovies are the most popular baits, along with chicken livers. Make sure on your softer baits you wrap it with Magic Thread to secure bait onto your hook.
 
CRAPPIE
 
Best shot at Crappie is getting into a cove, dropping a light and using crappie jigs or live minnows.
 
 
Other New
The Bureau of Reclamation administration office and visitors center is now opened and selling annual passes for the lake. Opened from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the weekends only.
