    Re: New Melonies on fire.

    Great to hear the kokes are back in force . I'm headed there on Wednesday. Could you see schools on your electronics? About how deep where they? I will post how I do Wednesday. Fish on!

    Melones has a natural reproducing population, but many of these fish were panted 2 and 3 years ago for a total of 110,000 fish. 55k/year. Don Pedro is fishing just as good for the kokes too. Great to see them in numbers again. Even when people said they were gone I always managed a few each year.

    I wish they'd plant kings in NM, historically it was a huge spawning area before the dams.
