Lake Burton Fishing Report – June 2020

GON Staff | June 1, 2020

Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: 69 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “The bite has been really good the last two weeks. We have caught fish on about every type of lure you could possibly throw. The best bite seems to be the midday topwater bite. We have had our best success throwing flukes in and around docks. Make sure to use braided line when fishing these wooden docks. Mono doesn’t hold up well. Skipping under the walkways seems to be the best ticket. We have been working docks that have good access to deep water. The largemouth and spots seem to like these deeper docks this time of year. The blueback herring have been spawning along the seawalls and are always close proximity to the bass. This bite should continue for a few more weeks as we transition to an early summer pattern

Brown Trout: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “The trolling bite has picked up lately. We have been trolling a spread of small jerkbaits and spoons in the 15- to 20-foot depths at the mouths of the creeks. This bite seems to be great or not happening. I think the bite will be more consistent as we head toward the 70-degree mark on water temps.
Walleye: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “The bite has been tough lately, and hopefully it will pick up in the next couple of weeks.
