New Melones Anglers Report
By: Tucker Tarap Glory Hole Sports
TROUT / KOKANEE
The kokanee bite has slowed down significantly as they are beginning to move up river for the spawn although you may get lucky and catch a few. The trout on the other hand can still be caught pretty well either between the two bridges or by the dam at about 40-50 foot off of rock ledges. A couple of different setups are with a gold dodger with orange/purple, jpex lures, pink, orange hoochies, and apex lures in rainbow trout colors. Bruce Dobin and Chris Kuntz of Wilton went out on the lake with Kyle Wise catching 9 solid trout between the spillway and dam using yellow dodgers paired with orange or red apex lures in 40-50 feet of water. Along with the trout, the bass thought they would see what a apex taste like with 9 bass coming over the rail.
BASSThe bass bite as of late has began to slow down drastically during this transition period, but big fish can still be caught like this 8lb 5oz largemouth caught by Glory Hole Sports employee Tucker Tarap on a Googan Baits slim shake worm on a shaky head. Most of the fish are being caught from 3-15 foot in the mornings and late afternoons using either slow bottom baits or crankbaits, while in the middle of the day they can be caught from 20-40 foot with Carolina rigs, dropshots and jigs.CRAPPIEThe crappie bite has dropped off, possibly due to the heat. May be going to deeper, cooler waters. We have live large and medium minnows in stock!
CATFISHAnthony Skoobecky of Angels Camp poses with a 9lb 5oz catfish he caught on a morning dawn Roboworm drop shotting in angels creek. There has been quite a few large catfish recently being caught on bass tackle and also using worms, cut bait and the always trusty chicken liver. This is just in time for our annual catfish contest as it starts on October 1st.
