New Melones Anglers Report


by Gene Hildebrand, Glory Hole Sports

New Melones Reservoir's current lake level is 1051.75 and 36.25 ft. from full. Water temperatures have been dropping on the lake with the cooler weather in the evenings, currently temps are 60-63d. Water clarity is good. Angels Cove launch ramp is closed, and the fish cleaning station remains closed at Angels Cove with water line breaks interfering with operations.


Anglers are reporting the beginning of a good trout bite with the cooler water temps, however trout remain in deep water. Trolling for trout is the best bet using Speedy Shiners in chrome/blue, Needlefish blue w. black dots, also Rapala CD09 in a Brown Trout has produced trout.  Put your lure 100 ft. behind the boat and troll at 2.5 MPH.

Richard put a limit of bows in the boat in 2 hours on Monday from 21/2 lbs to 51/2 lbs

Done for the season.

Glory Hole Sports regular Ron Linn of Mt. Ranch was fishing from shore near the 49 bridge using Yamamoto green pumpkin red laminate on a shakey head setup to land a 3.3 lb largemouth. Bass have been hard to pattern with trout anglers trolling are landing bass at 55-65 ft. Look for shad fleeing bass on the surface and cast similar patterned bait matching shad.
