Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – July 2009
Eufaula: Level: 1.5 feet above full pool. Temp: 85-87 degrees. Clarity: Clear to lightly stained.
Bass: Dr. Tim Malcolm reports, “There has been a big mayfly hatch on the north end of the lake. Look for areas where there is surface activity from feeding bream. A small topwater lure is a good bet to catch some good fish in these areas. Once the action stops on top, more fish can be caught in these areas by fishing slowly with a green-pumpkin Big Bite Bait Trick Stick. With all of the rain we have been having lately, the Corps of Engineers has been pulling water more than normal resulting in a good bite on ledges in 8 to 12 feet of water. Stanford Cedar Shad crankbaits in the sexy-shad color have been productive along with a Carolina-rigged Big Bite 6-inch green-pumpkin finesse worm. Look for areas with a hard bottom where there is an irregularity such as a point, indention, high spot, etc. The presence of stumps or brush will make an area even better. Keep hitting high-percentage areas until you find a school of fish that is actively feeding.”
