Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report June 2009

GON Staff | May 27, 2009

Bartletts Ferry: Level: Full pool. Temp: 77 degrees. Clarity: Muddy in the creeks; good stain on the main lake.

Bass: Fair. Dennis Hudson reports, “We’re still catching fish, but we aren’t catching the good ones like we were,” he said. The postspawn lull has kicked in, but the bite should pick up in June. However, with all the rain, dam releases have the water level fluctuating daily, and a solid pattern has yet to emerge. Dennis said there has been a pretty good topwater bite around bream beds with a Pop-R, bone in color. The mayflies have started hatching sporadically, and the big hatches should begin in the latter half of the month. A Pop-R is a good bait around mayfly hatches, and you can also get bit on a weightless Trick Worm or Fluke. Shaky-head Trick Worms are catching fish around the docks and brushpiles, and there’s also a decent Trick Worm and Fluke bite in the backs of the pockets and around the emerging grass. The grass bite should pick up very soon. Throw a jig ’n pig, Texas rig or Fluke around the grass. Dennis has also had some fish blow up on a Horny Toad fished in the grass.
