The Big Fish of the Week Contest at Glory Hole Sports

in Angels Camp has three winners Brian Basacker, Kurt Sourbine and Coogie Sierra.

Each brought in a 4-pound rainbow trout caught at New Melones Reservoir. Basacker and Sourbine also caught several other fish in the 2- to 3-pound range.

Trout fishing remains good in general. Most trout are 20-50 feet deep and nightcrawlers or silver-blue or Cop Car shad-pattern Needlefish or Kastmasters are working.

Joe Hallett caught a limit of trout weighing up to 3.45 pounds one day and bagged a mixed limit of Kokanee salmon and rainbows weighing up to 3.66 pounds

another day. Ron Rinaro caught a 3.6-pounder and a 2.5-pounder, Larry Gross and Sierra caught four rainbows and two Kokanee weighing up to 2.5 pounds and Kevin McNeal caught a 3.1-pounder.

Kokanee fishing has picked up somewhat and some good-sized fish from 1.5 to 2.5 pounds - are being caught. Wayne Douma of Fish On Guide Service had

fantastic luck this week as All Brunner, Tom Hensley, Bill Windslow, Ernie Holt, Pete Peterson, Richard and Edward Fish, and Jeff, Sheral and Katie Byram all caught limits of fat kokes.

Douma reported that he and his clients used pink Apexes, Sockeye Slammers and Hootchies, all tipped with shoepeg corn soaked in ProCure oil, and fished 10-15 feet off the bottom in 85-90 feet of water.

Bass are suspended off main lake points from 10-30 feet deep. Falling lake levels has made for a tough bite, but shad-pattern Rattletraps and crankbaits are good producers right now.

At the Moccasin Point end of Lake Don Pedro, trout and salmon are going for bright lures like Wedding Rings and Needlefish at 20-25 feet deep in the main channel.
