Lake Eufaula Fishing Report October 2012

GON Staff | September 26, 2012

Eufaula: Level: 2.4 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 80s. Clarity: Slight stain to clear.

Bass: Good. Capt. Sam Williams reports, “The river remains low, which is great for fishing but requires caution for navigation. The water is cooling down, and the shad have become active. Look for the bait working, and you will be on feeding bass. Matching the bait is the trick. Keep a black magic marker with you. When you select your favorite lure, place a shad mark on the lateral line just behind the gills. You will see the increase in hits. Most of the baitfish are threadfin shad, a favorite of bass and crappie. The shallow grass and pads continue to hold bass early. We are in for some hot fishing on Lake Eufaula this fall. Come and have some fun. Please take a few of the smaller bass, and enjoy a good meal.”

Bream: Fair. “Panfish are around brush and hangovers on banks. Wigglers are the best bet,” Sam said.

Catfish: Good. “Catfish keep on cooperating. Bottom fishing with big worms will put some good food on the supper table,” Sam said. “Also, jug fishing is really fun for the fishermen who want a little more action in their catfishing experience. It will keep you moving, and the kids will not get bored. The sunny days are still very hot on the water. Keep suntan lotion and water with you.”
