A Melones kokanee tournament in the middle of summer with 70 degree temps? Yup...no joking here. With 100 degree temps expected, the springlike weather was definitely welcomed. Despite the small sized kokanee this year, true kokanee power anglers looked past the small catches and gathered up at Angels Camp to participate in our annual New Melones tourney, have fun with friends and family, and celebrate the rich kokanee fishery we are all fortunate to have. For our forty-two teams, finding limits wasn't the hard part. It was a test to find the bigger kokanee that would boost the team to a good finish. Congratulations to the team of Jack Schultz and Alan Traynor and Junior Angler Isaac Perez, Jr for taking top winnings at this year's event. Special thank you's to Jennifer Wendt and RJ Sanchez for their generous donation of junior division tackle boxes and many thanks to Mag Tackle Company, Pro Troll, Guin Fishing Tackle, Ken's Custom Tackle, Larry's Limit, Woody1, and Glitter Bug Tackle for filling their tackle boxes with awesome kokanee gear! Much appreciation to Clark's Corner for catering both days and providing our anglers with a myriad of goodies and treats. And to our anglers who participated at this year's event, we can't thank you enough for supporting us through thick and thin, small kokes and big kokes, low water or high water.
