Lake Burton Fishing Report September 2015

GON Staff | August 26, 2015

Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: 81 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Guide Wes Carlton reports, “The largemouth bite has been decent early in the mornings on topwater or around docks. Try using a white fluke or a Super Spin tipped with a white fluke. Spotted bass have been schooling mid-morning in and around humps and points. We have been catching most of these fish on a Super Spin with a white fluke in 20 feet of water.”

Brown Trout:
Wes reports, “The bite has been average for this time of year. We have had several fish in the 5- to 6-lb. range the last week or two. These fish are starting to feed on a normal pattern (early a.m. and late afternoon). Most of the fish we have been catching are trolling. The secret depth seems to be 24 feet in the mornings and 28 to 30 feet in the afternoons. Use bright-colored crankbaits and spoons. Any size will work right now. The trout should start congregating in bigger schools by the first of September and be easier to catch.”

Walleye: Wes reports, “The bite has been good early in the mornings. The fish seem to be hanging in the 25- to 30-foot mark early in the mornings and 40 to 50 feet deep by midday. Look for long points that have a gradual drop. Try trolling a 10XD crankbait 100-plus feet behind the boat. This pattern will remain the same over the next few weeks.”
