I was at mclure on saturday. i did not do any trout fishing but i talked to some people wo were. they reported that the lake temp is holding steady at around 80 degrees so most trout and kings are being caught near the dam between 40-80 feet. hope this helps

Gloryholesports.com for the fishing report for New Melones. I am going to go try this Saturday if you go good luck. Jim

On my last two trips to Mc Clure I got the skunk.Water temp(surface) was near 80 degrees when I put the boat in the water at 6 am. Then the pleasure boaters hit the water around 8:30 and seem to want to be where you are so it's not hard to see who wins.I usually fish Mc Clure from mid april, first of may till mid june ,first of july.Then I head for higher elevations.Melones being a larger body of water might be a better choice. Lakes like cherry, alpine, spicer might be a better choice yet and they are not that much further up the road. good luck , iron-man
