Took my son Pat and his bro Mike G to Melones after regaling them over the holidays with fish stories of 20-30 fish days so of course it was slow.
Bite was off but we caught a few. I was teaching Pat the proper way to hold fish for pics but he is a slow learner.
Trolling there was pretty steady but rookie crew dropped fish after fish. Finally Mike gets on the board.
For you serious fisher types, I would concentrate east of the PF bridge right now. There are a lot of trout stacked up there.
We saw a Subie on the rocks about to pass back to an underwater state
