Lake Eufaula Fishing Report June 2014

GON Staff | May 28, 2014

Eufaula: Level: 1.6 feet above full pool. Temp: 79 degrees. Clarity: Clearing.

Guide Sam Williams reports, “Cold weather and fronts continue to stall normal patterns. Water temperatures have flipped from 88 degrees last week to 76 early this morning (May 17) and finally warmed to 79 by midday. Bass have been shallow early in the week, and then they slipped back to the first drop after the cold front and drop in water temperature. They have been very active on blue and green shades of Senkos. Earlier in the week they were very hot on the Senko rigged with the Keith Poache Super Spin. Spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, frogs and shallow cranks have taken some good bass. The biggest we heard about was 7-lbs., 2-ozs.”

“The fish have gone back deep, and trolling heavier jigs tipped with minnows is doing good,” Sam said.

“Bluegills and shellcrackers are setting up to be hot,” Sam said. “The next two full moons should be right. Look for the beds on protected flats and around the shallow cover. A few are being caught in these areas now, and they should be full of fish soon. Worms, crickets and Beetle Spins will get you a nice mess to eat.”

Catfish: Sam reports, “Catfish seem to be hitting everything right now. Bass fishermen are catching cats on a regular basis on soft plastics and crankbaits. Jug fishing is a great way to catch a lot and keep youngsters interested and active.”

Note: Sam said, “Please visit, and consider fishing our benefit tournament June 14 on Lake Eufaula. You will have a great weekend and help support the children and their family when they are in Children’s Hospital at UAB in Birmingham.”
