Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report October 2019

GON Staff | September 24, 2019

Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.9 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid to upper 80s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament director and competitor Dennis Hudson reports, “The bass fishing has been feast or famine lately. A few tournament bags in the 12- to 14-lb. range have been caught, but most guys are struggling. Next month things should pick up a lot. On Sept. 21, a drawdown is expected to begin, and usually they will take the lake down around 6 to 8 feet. The fishing is normally very good during the drawdown. Buzzbaits, Rat-L-Traps, squarebill crankbaits and jigs all can produce really well, especially when there is current. Main-lake points are best, but a lot of wolfpacks can be found cruising in the coves. Access is limited when the lake is down, but Poor Boys Landing is about the best bet.” On Sept. 14, GON writer Ronnie Garrison had a five-fish limit of spotted bass that weighed only 5 pounds. He got plenty of buzzbait hits early, but most were short fish. Once the sun got up, shaky head worms were the best bet.”
