New Melones Anglers Report
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.
KOKANEE None reported
BASSWith 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..
CATFISHThis 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.
CRAPPIEBest shot at Crappie is getting into a cove, dropping a light and using crappie jigs or live minnows.
