Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – January 2020

GON Staff | December 31, 2019

Eufaula: Level: 1.7 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Mid 50s. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Guide Sam Williams reports, “These winter cold fronts and barometric swings have the fish totally confused, and considering the last great shad hatch, their bellies are full, too. It’s been taking a slow and patient presentation to aggravate a bite right now. Texas-rigged worms in green-pumpkin and red-shad colors worked near wood and rocks are catching some of the shallow fish. Blade baits in the grassy areas after the sun gets up are still getting hits from bass and jacks. The deeper fish are hitting jigging spoons. Spoons can be held in the school and bounced to finesse a strike. The weather patterns will settle down in a few weeks as winter sets in, and the fishing patterns will become a little more stable.”

Crappie: Guide Sam Williams reports, “Crappie have moved to the deeper cover where the natural and man-made structures are located. Minnows are getting some strikes, but the smaller spoons worked just above the schools are working better. The crappie being caught are nice-sized slabs.”
