Lake Burton Fishing Report June 2010
Burton: Level: 1.7 feet below full pool. Temp: High 70s to low 80s. Clarity: Clear.
Spotted Bass: Excellent. “We’ve had the best postspawn and spawn bite I have ever seen,” said guide Wes Carlton. “These fish have really gained some weight this year from eating the bluebacks. Several trips we had spots over 6 pounds and many in the 3- to 5-lb. range. I have had good luck with a Zoom Super Fluke in white or blue. Some of the bigger fish came from shallow pockets off a Rick Steckleberg custom herring swimbait by Swormin’ Hornet Lures.”
Largemouths: Good. “There are lots of fish in the 3- to 4-lb. range,” Wes said. He recommends pumpkinseed finesse worms. “These fish are in less than 12 feet of water around the banks.”
Trout: Excellent. “Brown trout and rainbow fishing is great!” Wes said. “Troll crankbaits and spoons over the main channel 12 feet deep. Try Loco spoons or Lucky Craft crankbaits.”
Walleye: “We have been catching some good fish at night with lights using small minnows in the 20 feet range,” Wes said.
Hybrids: Slow, according to Wes.
