Lake Burton Fishing Report – October 2006
GON Staff | September 25, 2006
Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. Worms in brush in 15 to 20 feet of water has been the primary pattern recently, according to Gary Kilby. Green pumpkin is likely the most popular worm color on the mountain lakes. In October look for the topwater bite to improve over brushpiles on main-lake points. Sammys in a blueback pattern are a good choice and good color of topwater to try. The largemouth bite has improved at Burton because the spots have been hit so hard, said Gary. Try a spinnerbait, a pearl fluke or a shad-colored Shad Rap around any wood structure back in the creeks
