Lake Eufaula Fishing Report November 2007

GON Staff | October 24, 2007

Eufaula: Level: 5 feet below full pool. Temp: About 80 degrees. Clarity: Slight stain.
Bass: Fair. Tim Malcolm said the fish have not yet made a major move from their summer patterns. “(They’re) still being caught on shallow ledges in 10 to 12 feet of water. Your efforts should be concentrated around the mouths of creeks and ditches as the shad are starting to bunch up in these areas, and the fish will not be far from them,” Tim said. “When the water temperature cools down into the 60s, you will need to really pay attention to shad movements, as this will dictate where you need to fish, and it can change daily. Shad-colored, medium-diving crankbaits such as a Stanford Cedar Shad will be a good choice for the next several weeks. If the crankbait bite is slow, a Texas rig, Carolina rig or jig fished slowly in any available cover around the shad is productive. Another option that will really pick up over the next several weeks is to fish up the river in the River Bend area. Texas rigs and jigs around blowdowns and stumps will produce some nice fish. Topwater baits can also be very good, especially early in the day or on overcast days. Just remember that this is a time of the year when the fish start moving around more, and you may have to cover more water than was necessary over the past several weeks,” Tim said.
