Carters Lake Fishing Report – May 2007

GON Staff | April 23, 2007

Carters: Level: 0.9 feet below full pool. Temp: 58-64 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Fair. Buddy Callahan at Bart’s Bait & Tackle said the cold nights in late April slowed the bite down. Right now the morning bite is almost nonexistent, and the evening bite is best. Tournament weights have been running 8 to 10 pounds. Big fish on April 18 was 5.84-lb. spot caught by Archie Cronan. The lure he used was a white spinnerbait.

Stripers: Very slow. There have been rumors of a 40-plus pounder having been caught below the re-reg spillway. There are reports of a good bite in Talking Rock Creek in the re-reg lake.

Bream: Good. An early bite is beginning due to early full moon in May.
