Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – April 2010

GON Staff | March 30, 2010

Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.8 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid to upper 50s. Clarity: Good stain; about a foot of visibility.

Good for numbers of small fish. Dennis Hudson thinks the fishing could blow wide open at any time. The current bite he’s on is seawalls in 3 to 5 feet of water using a Lucky Craft RC15 in red, chartreuse or splatterback. Also look in the backwater sloughs upriver, but the fish aren’t all the way in the backs of the pockets just yet. That could change any minute. As the fish get ready to spawn, Dennis will turn to a Texas rig or a soft-plastic jerkbait like a fluke along seawalls and up in any of the spawning pockets. Also, Senkos will come into play.

Very good. “They’re staging up and getting ready,” Dennis said. “They should all be up on the banks all over the place in the next week or so.” On a recent trip with his daughter, they boated 34 fish with the largest weighing about 1 3/4 pounds. They were night fishing, running dock lights with Jiffy Jigs.
