Lake Eufaula Fishing Report June 2013

GON Staff | May 29, 2013

Eufaula: Level: 0.8 feet above full pool. Temp: Low to mid 70s. Clarity: Lightly stained.

Bass: Good. Heavy rains have again impacted fishing. Look for a “new-water” shallow bite if the lake is rising or stable, but if it’s dropping fast, pull back and concentrate on ditches and main-lake ledges with crankbaits, jigs or big plastics on Texas rigs. “The bass are feeding shallow when the sun gets up,” said Capt. Sam Williams. “The frog, fluke or buzzbait are all working. Texas-rigged soft plastics worked over the top and dropped at the edge then worked slowly back to the boat is also getting a bite. The fish will follow it out and pick it up. In the deeper water, the heavy football jig is working when you swim it back slowly. The 30-degree temperature swings from day to day has the water temperature jumping all over the chart. Be sure and bring warm clothes if you are traveling from out of town.”

Good. “They are still eating crickets and worms along the bank around cover,” Sam said.

Crappie: They’re doing better at night under the lights, according to Sam.

Good. “Catfish are keeping the fishermen busy working the jugs. You can get all you want to clean if you find a cove where the wind lets you keep an eye on the jugs,” Sam said.
