Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – July 2023

GON Staff | June 29, 2023

Eufaula: Level: 1.1 below 190. Temp: 83 degrees. Clarity: Good stain

Bass: Capt. Sam Williams reports, “The recent rains have left the water level up at full pool. This has covered the shoreline vegetation, and the fish are feeding on the critters in there. The bass are doing well early and late in these areas using frogs and flukes in and over the cover. Spinnerbaits are good, also. Squarebill cranks, Traps and ChatterBaits along the outside of these areas are a smart choice. Texas-rigged soft plastics are also getting bit. Watermelon candy and watermelon red are good choices for colors. Zoom candy-bug Finesse worms are a hot color right now. The deeper fish are in 8 to 24 feet near any structure, natural or man-made. Large dark worms on Texas or Carolina rigs are a good bet. These fish are still full of shad, so it requires a slow and deliberate presentation to aggravate a strike. Deep crankbaits and spoons worked in these areas may be a way to keep a bait in front of them long enough to make them mad.”

Multiple Species: Capt. Sam Williams reports, “Crappie are deep on cover. Minnow-tipped jigs are working in these schools. Trolling is picking up on the creek drops. Panfish are working on crickets along any shore cover you find. Catfish on jugs baited with cutbait are getting a good mess of fine-eating fish. Bottom fishermen are doing well with crawlers in the creeks. Please visit and sign up for the Lee King Memorial Alabama Classic Bass Tournament Sept. 16 or call Capt. Sam 334.355.5057 for information. Remember to take a youngster fishing this summer. Enjoy God’s great outdoors and build those memories that will be your legacy for years to come. Pray for all our folks in uniform and their families. Pray for each other.”
