New Melones Reservoir


Best King salmon lake in northern California! Land-locked Kings can push ten pounds. Rainbows go up to six pounds and Kokanee go two plus pounds. Browns and Brooke trout are an occasional catch. The possibility of catching a limit or a large fish will bring you back for that great experience!

Nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills due east of Modesto and 39 miles from Stockton. Lake Don Pedro offers 160 miles of shoreline with nearly 13,000 surface acres of water . There are two full service marinas on the water, one at Fleming Meadows on the West Shore, and one at Moccasin Point on the East Shore.
