Lake Burton Fishing Report June 2011

GON Staff | May 26, 2011

Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Excellent. Wes Carlton reports, “The postspawn bite has been phenomenal this year. Last week we had one day with 57 bass — a mix of spots and largemouths. A white, weightless fluke and a Sammy have been working well early on points and docks. Mid morning to late afternoon, a Fish Head Spin with a white fluke has produced the bigger fish. We have been throwing this in the 12- to 17-foot depths. I hope this pattern holds for a couple more weeks. We have had two largemouths heavier than 10 pounds this month and some very healthy spots.”

Trout: Very good. Wes reports, “The brown trout have been biting great mid-lake with some bigger fish lately in the 2- to 4-lb. range. We have been trolling crankbaits and spoons in bright colors. Most of the fish have been caught in the 12- to 15-foot depths.”

Yellow Perch: Good. Wes reports, “The perch have started grouping up tight at about 16 to 18 feet. We have been catching these fish on small flukes and Roboworms on a drop-shot rig. Lake Burton is full of these fish, and they are very healthy.”
