Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – March 2024

GON Staff | February 28, 2024

Bartletts Ferry: Level: 1 foot below 521. Temp: High 50s to low 60s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Tournament angler Tyler Morgan with Summerlin Outdoors reports that fish are wanting to spawn, and many will be on the bed by the full moon on March 25.  Stained water warms fast, so look for a big push of prespawners in March. Target them with DT-6 and Frittside crankbaits in the mouths of sloughs up the river when current is flowing. From Idehour down to the dam and up Halawakee Creek, fish a wacky-rigged stick bait in the back one third of the coves. Hit all wood cover and grass. Bass will be on or near beds even if the water is too stained to see them. In light stain, fish a green-pumpkin stick worm, but go to black and blue in stained to muddy water. For a big female, cast a buzzbait. Those early spawning big females will crush a buzzbait fished in spawning areas. Tyler and his partner won the first Backwater Bassmaster’s tournament the last Sunday in  February with 17 pounds. Second was 14 pounds, and it took 9 pounds to get a check in ninth place.
