Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – June 2019

GON Staff | May 28, 2019

Eufaula: Level: 1.2 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: Slight stain.

Bass: Tournament pro Les Bratcher (#bigbitebaits #alxrods), of Big Bite Baits, reports, “Lake Eufaula is beginning to transition into its summer patterns. Fish are on the move and are headed deep. There are several factors that have fish in several different modes. The mayflies are hatching to help the morning topwater bite, and the water level going up and down has the fish somewhat scattered. You can try a little early shallow action, and then head to the ledges for the deep bite. Buzzbaits and frogs shallow are a good bet. When you move out deep, try crankbaits, jigs and plastics for the ledge bite. Be sure to check the generation schedule because the more current the better for the deep fish. The summer weather is on the way, and the deep fishing should just improve in the next few weeks. Tight lines.” In addition to the ledges, look for bass on roadbeds and humps in the 10- to 15-foot depth range, and trying dragging a Big Bite Fighting Frog on a Carolina rig. Other June techniques to keep in mind are to fish around bedding bream and mayfly hatches. Swim jigs, spinnerbaits, ChatterBaits and Pop-Rs can produce when bass are hanging around bream beds and mayfly hatches.

Bream: Look for bream beds in protected pockets and coves, especially around the full moon on June 17. Use your side-scan to find the dished-out beds near the shore and around docks.
