In 1982 the Dept. of Fish and Game placed Striped Bass into New Hogan and ruined almost all fishing. Prior to this New Hogan was one of the best all around fishing in the state. Old time resident, Mr. Stoker

New Hogan Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- i've been fishing for 7 years at hogan lake and have never catch a large mouth bass. Bass suck at hogan.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With New Hogan Lake at 55 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is getting ready to ramp up. The male bass will start moving up from deep water toward spawning coves and the big ones are right behind them. This is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. The female bass will start feeding at this water temperature in preparation for spawn. The male bass may be up shallow especially on sunny afternoons. Fishing sunny spawning grounds that are receiving the warm spring time sun is a great way to get a few largemouth bass in the boat.

New Hogan Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The lake is dead there is no crappie. All these yeras fishing at hogan lake i have never catch a crappie.Very very very saddddd.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

New Hogan Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- catfish is very good when the sun goes down. Bait is sardine and enchovies...very good.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

New Hogan Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I have never caught a trout at hogan. I believe the stripers ate them up a long time ago. However, the calaveras river below the dam is loaded with them, and I have always done real good here.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
