Lake Eufaula August Fishing Report 2019

GON Staff | July 24, 2019

Eufaula: Level: Full pool. Temp: Upper 80s. Clarity: Lightly stain; clear on the south end.

BassTournament angler Les Bratcher #bigbitebaits #alxrods, of Big Bite Baits, reports, “Lake Eufaula is in the typical summer pattern. The lake is full of water due to all the rain we have been having. Some fish are being caught shallow around river grass and lily pads on frog type baits. The shallow guys have also been punching mats to catch some good bags. The most reliable bite however is on the ledges and structure offshore. This bite is even better during the hours they generate power to give us a good current. Anglers are catching fish on several different baits. Crankbaits, jigs, flutter spoons, magnum shaky heads, big swim baits, Texas rigs and deer hair jigs seem to be doing the trick. I don’t look for any changes in the lake over the next few weeks as there is a lot of summer left.”Guide Sam Williams reports, “The afternoon rains have kept the water a few degrees cooler. The early morning topwater bite near cover is holding true. Frogs and blade baits in tight are getting action. The deep cover bite is good on Carolina rigs with big plastics. Punching tight grass and reeds with creature baits is also working. Work an area slow and thoroughly—bass are holding tight in the cover and need to be finessed. Dead stick it and let it lay still, and then move it slow and stop again. Watch your line, they are not hitting hard.”
