Carters Lake Fishing Report November 2015

GON Staff | October 29, 2015

Carters: Level: 1.9 feet below full pool. Temp: 67-71 degrees. Clarity: Light green.

Bass: Good. Guide Eric Crowley reports, “Green fish are spread out on most of the banks that have good cover and are near deep water. Trees, rocks and shallow-water marker areas are good ambush points. I’m throwing a  Spook Jr. or a Rapala Countdown on 8-lb. fluorocarbon right before sunrise until around 9 a.m. with good results. After the sun is up, I am targeting the shade lines around the mouth of Worley Creek with the same topwater baits. Spots up to 5 pounds have been caught in the last few weeks.”

Stripers: Eric reports, “We have been catching fish on planers early near submerged timber and later in the day on downlines fished 24 to 35 feet deep near steep drop-offs on the main lake. Fishing slow is key with the downlines, and keep your bait near the bottom. This is also the time of year I switch back to mono leaders for striped fish as it is more resistant to getting fragile in the early morning frigid temps.”
