Fishing Report
Placeholder Image
Lake Don Pedro:
King salmon to 5 pounds are being found at depths from 80 to 120 feet in Middle Bay, Fleming Bay, and off Hatch Creek with rolled threadfin shad or anchovies.
Bass fishing is decent right now with fish being caught early, on top water lures and with bottom bouncing lures during the mid day.
Kokanee are also biting well but are still scattered around the lake at depths of 25 to 50 foot levels.

New Melones Lake:
Trout fishing is very tough right now for many anglers fishing off the bank. Fishing for kokanee is excellent right now as anglers are catching nice fish while trolling between 40 and 60 feet deep. Bass fishing has been tough; anglers are having a hard time putting together any real pattern. The bass seem to be either chasing schools of shad or scattered throughout the lake.
