Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – March 2020

GON Staff | February 27, 2020

Eufaula: Level: 0.8 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Upper 50s. Clarity: Muddy.

Bass: Tournament angler Les Bratcher, of Big Bite Baits, reports, “The spring push is on at Eufaula. We had an early wave of spawners come in the last couple of weeks. The Bass Pro Tour guys had a successful event here two weeks ago. The fish were caught primarily on the banks except for the winner and several other guys. The main choice of baits were ChatterBaits and spinnerbaits. A few of the anglers opted for fishing plastics or crankbaits. The lake has not been stable and is very stained, which has caused the fish to move around quite a bit. If we can get some stable weather and no rain, then things will only improve. Try fishing your favorite shallow spawning flats, and if that doesn’t work, then go to the normal staging areas. We should have a fun spring here.” #bigbitebaits #rangerboats #alxrods

Guide Sam Williams reports, “The constant rains have caused a major fluctuation in the lake level. Over the past week or so, we have seen a little over a 3-foot change. The river remains very dirty. The rains up north have Lanier and West Point even higher and muddy. I talked with a buddy up there, and he informed me his dock was under water and we would soon get that muddy water through here, as well. While the water was at its peak, the fish were tight in the new cover, and punching with jigs and creature baits was producing very good. The water has been moving constantly as they regulate the excess water, resulting in a good bite on the deeper ledges as the bass wait to ambush the baitfish coming by. These fish are in great shape, and our spring fishing promises to be really hot. ChatterBaits, noisy rattle baits and red-colored plastics are the baits of choice in this muddy water. The pumps on the refuge areas have been running, keeping the baitfish active. These areas are great for bladed jigs and ripping lipless crankbaits. Watch the birds as they are feeding, the fish are pushing these bait schools up as they feed under them.”
