Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – January 2010
Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 48-51 degrees. Clarity: Muddy.
Bass: Poor. “They’ve got the flood gates open, and the fishing is (not good),” said Dennis Hudson. That was the report from his most-recent tournament, but before that a few fish were being caught. “I was a good guide,” Dennis said. “I’ve been saving them up, but my partner caught 15 pounds on a crankbait. Halawaka Creek seems to be where everybody’s fishing and where all the fish are coming from.” The fish are biting a red Rebel Wee-R in about 5 feet of water on small rocky points, and this bite should continue through the rest of the winter. The other bite is on boat docks. Dennis said to run docks with a finesse worm like a Senko, and skip it up as far under the dock as you can. In the stained water, dark colors like black with red flake should work, but if the water clears up some, go with watermelon or green pumpkin. Also, a small jig on the docks can produce a pretty good sack. Dennis suggested a 3/8-oz. jig in black and green pumpkin with a green-pumpkin trailer.
