Lake Burton Fishing Report – February 2022

GON Staff | January 28, 2022

Burton: Level: 7 feet below full. Temp: 49 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Tyler Clore reports, “Bass fishing has been good. You can catch them with several techniques. I have good luck with the white Fish Head Spin and a herring-colored Lucky Craft Staysee 90 in the ditches. A lot of the bass are already loading up in the ditches to get ready for the spawn. You can also catch them off rocky points with the jerkbait or a green-pumpkin shaky-head worm. As the day goes on, try pitching a jig with a Zoom craw around deep docks on sunny days. The best days to fish are the days leading up to the fronts that we have been getting hit with.”

Trout/Walleye: Guide Tyler Clore reports, “We are seeing a few trout schooling shallow early in the mornings but seem to disappear quickly as the sun climbs above the mountains. As the water warms this month, the walleye will be moving in and out of staging areas up the river for the yearly spawn. Try cranking Rapala No. 7 Shad Raps in the deeper holes of the river for the walleye.”
