Lake Eufaula Fishing Report August 2012

GON Staff | August 2, 2012

Eufaula: Level: 2.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 88 degrees. Clarity: Slight stain to clear.

Bass: Fair. Capt. Sam Williams reports, “The mornings are great at daybreak, and it really stays nice if the clouds are present. But when the sun breaks through, it gets hot in a hurry. Be sure and keep plenty of sunscreen and water with you. After a good morning bite, the fish are continuing to bite up into the day if you will work at it. Bass are holding in the cover in the creeks. The topwater bite is early and quick. After the sun gets on the water, keep working the same areas with a jig or Texas rig. Work the baits slowly.”

Panfish: Slow. “Work the edges where you find blowdowns and treetops in the water. There are still some mayflies here and there. Look for them around the shoreline in the bushes,” Sam said.

Catfish: Good. “Catfish are going to make for a good fishing day most any time. Find a shady spot with some bottom cover or a drop in casting distance, and sit back and relax,” Sam said.
