Lake New Melones Fishing Report July 2010
Water temp is around 74-78
Took my mom and son (6) out to New Melones on Friday from 6-noon. We must have caught 40 fish, lost track. We caught them on topwater baits – BBZ 6″, Pop R’s, Spooks. Spinnerbaits in shad or white colors. As for plastics – Insane Shakers 6″ green colors on a shaky head. Baby Brawlers in browns and greens. Small swimbaits. Jigs – Berserk football jigs in any color. If you are in the grass throw the Berserk Slop Jig, it comes out clean but with a fish on it usually. Fish can be caught from the shoreline to about 25ft. Most of the fish are eating shad, but a lot are relating to the bottom eating crawdads.
