Fish Report July 10, 2022 New Melones Reservoir
BY : Gene Hildebrand
New Melones Reservoirs' current water level is 905.50 and is 182.50 ft. from full. Water temperature is 79 d. +- depending on your location on the lake. 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. Tentative date for New Melones Lake Marina to open up for the season will be May 11.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON CAMPING, DAY USE, BOAT LAUNCHING on NEW MELONES
Per the Bureau of Reclamation... "The Bureau of Reclamation is finalizing contingency plans that will impact recreation services at the start of recreation season (April 1st). For Glory Hole, the boat launching will continue at GH Point (Angels Cove will remain closed unless we have a biblical proportion of precipitation that brings up the reservoir).  Day use areas will remain open, except for Osprey Pt. (which is currently closed). Ironhorse campground will remain open with a high probability that Big Oak will open. We’ve had many challenges and like the private sector it has been difficult to pick up employees over the last year and a half. Tuttletown will feel the impacts of low staffing, and low water levels more acutely as the entire side has been closed to the public as of July 11, 2022
 
If your planning to visit this summer, get your reservations in early...
Reservations are required for camping. Contact www.recreation.gov. New Melones Lake Marina is currently closed for the season

TROUT/KOKANEE
 
Nice holdover trout are being landed while trolling the main lake, as well as up towards Angels Cove, and above the 49 bridge. Speedy shiners are coming into play along with Apex lures tipped with night crawler. The Kokanee Power tournament was on July 9th with a great turnout. The kokanee did not disappoint as most teams had limits to choose their three best to weigh in. James, Jim, and Denise Franco took home first place money with 4.80 lbs. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BASS
Bass bite going into mid summer continues to produce some quality bass. Anglers using poppers, ploppers and spooks are getting bit. Change it up depending on conditions on the surface, match your bait with the natural forage.
 
CATFISH
Bodie Stevens of Vallecito was on a overnite trip, landing some nice catsfish using chicken livers. They reported the best time for the bite was 8:30-10:00 pm. 

 
CRAPPIE
Anglers searching for crappie are finding them near structure. Look for submerged trees and ones coming out of the water. There seems to be a shortage of shiners for fishing crappie, we have not been able to get them for the last month from our supplier. Go to your crappie jig.
