Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – June 2020

GON Staff | June 1, 2020

Eufaula: Level: 1.9 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Ranging from nearly clear to stained.

Bass: Les Bratcher, of Big Bite Baits, reports, “The shad have been spawning all over the lake, and if you find them, you are in business. Anglers are catching bass on spinnerbaits, swim jigs, buzzbaits and frogs of all types. The water is stable, and that has really helped the bite. If everything continues, the bass will head to their summer haunts before long. That means you can get an early topwater bite and then head to the world famous Eufaula ledges to do your damage. Crankbaits, jigs and all types of deep plastic rigs will take over the bite patterns for the rest of the summer.” Guide Sam Williams reports, “The bass are cruising the shallow grass and pads in the afternoon, and that’s when ChatterBaits, frogs, Baby Brush Hogs and Trick Worms are good baits to use. Deeper structure is holding bass where the crappie are schooled up. Deep cranks and Carolina rigs are a good choice here.”

Bream: Guide Sam Williams reports, “We are beginning to smell the shellcrackers bedding on the flats and in some of the grassy areas. Wigglers on the bottom are the best bait to use. Crickets along the banks, especially around brush are great places for the bluegill to bite.”
