Lake Burton Fishing Report June 2014
Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: 69 degrees. Clarity: Slight stain.
Bass: Guide Wes Carlton reports, “The largemouth and spotted bass bite has been the best I have seen in several years. We are catching between 30 and as many as 50 in a single fishing trip. Jerkbaits and crankbaits have been the dominate baits with SpotStickers tipped with pumpkin finesse worms also working well. Most of the fish are sitting on a 16- to 20-foot bottom in and around major lake points. The Pop-R bite has been working well in the mornings for some really nice largemouth. Look for these fish to start feeding on top in the next few weeks. Keep a Sammy in herring color tied on for these surfacing bass.”
Brown Trout: “The brown trout fishing has been on fire the last couple of days. We are catching some really big fish. A few of the bigger fish have been tipping the scales at 8 pounds. Try trolling Shad Raps in bright colors 80 feet behind the boat. Trolling speed has not been a big issue lately. Most of these fish have moved out over the main-lake channels or close by. A few smaller fish are still up in the creeks. This bite should continue to get better as the fish become more concentrated as we head toward late June.”
