I am thinking of going there for bass fishing, but wonder whether it worth the drive.
Has anyone been there before? I can only fish from the shore, so wonder whether they allow me to park on the side of the road and just walk to the water from different parking spots ? If I have to park in their parking lot, I wonder which one I should park, and then try to walk along the lake to get to good spots ?
I just got back from a 2 day trip to New Melones and if the water levels at New Hogan are anything like the water levels at New Melones (which I suspect they are since all those mother lode lakes are dependant on snowpack), the water levels are going to be lowwwwwwwwwwww. Bass up there are staging, not quite in spawn yet, but it's gonna blow up in a week or two. Give Glory Hole Sports a call(209-736-4333) to see if they have any info on New Hogan.
I heard bass fishing can be good at times. There is good population of stripers in the lake as well.
