Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – August 2006
Level: 4.0 feet low. Temp: 85-90 degrees. Clarity: Lower end is clear. Upper end has normal stain.
Bass: Good. Jay Grogan said, “In the morning we’re fishing along the deep water where the river channel cuts in. We’re throwing white buzzbaits along the drop offs and around whatever cover is left with the water so low. During the day we’re throwing Texas- and Carolina-rigged 10-inch worms. Junebug and redbug are the colors working for us right now. We’re casting in the 10 to 15 feet range. White bass, hybrids, and largemouth are chasing shad in the evening. Look for baitfish and schools. Cast chrome Rat-L-Traps and blue-shad Rapala DT-16s around the schools and baitfish.”
Catfish: Great. Jay Chambliss said, “Perhaps the best bite on the lake right now is for channel catfish. You can just about pull up to any shallow hump in the lake and catch as many as you can stand. Worms or cut bait fished on the bottom will do the trick. Go early and have a mess of fish before it gets too hot.
