Just a quick update this week as not many patterns
Lake is just a foot or so over normal pool and the
water surface temps are 80 to 82 degrees.
Crappie fishing on the lower lake in the dam
and Sterett Creek areas continues to be best on brush piles in 10 to 17 feet of
water with minnows fished down at the top of the brush 8 to 12 feet deep.
Bass fishing with the recent cold front has slowed
and plastics on brush piles and points in ten feet of water are still is
the best pattern. One hint the smaller plastics I E Baby Brush Hogs, Biffle
Bugs, Wooly Bugs, and finess worms are the best baits with green pumpkin red
flake the best color.
Catfishermen continue to do best on the main lake
flats in less than 12 feet of water with both jugs and rod and reel producing.
Cut shad and live bluegill are still the best baits. The flats near the dam, and
in the KK Island area have been good.
The white bass and hybrid fishing has picked up
this week with the whites surfacing on new hatch fry in the dan and O3 areas
late in the evening. Pop R's and small spoons are best for these surfacing
whites. Hybrid fishing has picked up some with reports of fish being caught
early and late in the day on 4 inch sassy shads and big 1 ounce spoons on the
main lake humps. G-4 and the Airport are good bets for the hybrids.
Shoukld be a great weekend for fishing. See ya at
Sterett Creek Marina!!!
