Lake Burton Fishing Reports – July 2020

GON Staff | June 26, 2020

Burton: Level: Full. Temp: 77 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “The bass bite has been strong for the last few weeks. We have caught fish shallow and deep. The majority of the bass seem to be heading toward deeper water for a summertime pattern. These fish will feed early morning and late evening.  Most of the spotted bass seem to be hanging on a 20- to 30-foot bottom. We have caught most of our fish casting underspins tipped with flukes. Working long points seems to be the ticket right now. SpotStickers have also been producing some bigger fish. This pattern should continue for the next few weeks as we near late summer.”

Trout: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “The trout bite has been steady all week. We have caught some bigger fish in the last few days trolling Strike King deep divers. These fish seem to be spread out a bit. I have been focusing on the main-lake channels trolling from Timpson Cove toward the dam. They seem to react to the brighter color lures. This pattern should continue for the next few weeks and get better as we head toward August.”
