Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report March 2015

GON Staff | February 25, 2015

Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 47 degrees. Clarity: River is mostly clear.

Bass: “The bass are going to be in their prespawn mode during March,” said tournament director Dennis Hudson. “You’ve got to drag a lot of slow plastics like shaky heads, Texas-rigs and finesse worms. They’ll start out on the seawalls and work their way to the backs of pockets. The bass will be around the seawalls and the boat docks until the water temperature gets right for them to get on the bed. My guess is that they won’t actually bed until the full moon on the first week of April, but they’ll be thinking about it all through March if we can get some warmer weather. Halawakee Creek is the main area where the bass spawn on this lake, so you’ll need to concentrate there in March.”

Crappie: “I expect the crappie will be on the bed by the third week in March at the latest,” Keith says. “They’ll be in the shallow water around stumps.”
