Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – May 2009

GON Staff | April 28, 2009

Eufaula: Level: 1.08 feet above full pool. Temp: Mid 60s to low 70s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Excellent. Guide Sam Williams reports, “Bass have been extremely active with lots of action on the first drops. They are feeding in shifts. You will be on them, and then when they slow, back off and fish a deeper crank. In an hour or so, they will move back on the shallows. The Baby 1-Minus in the chartreuse/blueback has been hot. Soft plastics in the huckleberry colors are hot right now. The 7-inch Spear Worm has been our soft bait of choice along with the Kinami Flash with the swim tail. The Big Bite Top Toad is bringing a lot of action deep in the cover.”

Good. Sam said, “Crappie are surprisingly hot in this muddy water. They are very shallow and are eating minnows.”

Fair. “Bream are still a little ways out. As the water clears up in the next few weeks, they will begin to get more active,” Sam said. “The shorelines under the brush will be very good as the mayflies begin to hatch again. With the water up under the willows, they will be a sight when you watch them come out of the water to pick a fly from a branch. Don’t forget, this draws a lot of bass action as they are feeding on the bream at the same time.”
