Lake Eufaula Fishing Report September 2013

GON Staff | August 28, 2013

Eufaula: Level: 2.2 feet above full pool. Temp: Mid 80s. Clarity: Stained in the creeks, clearing on the river.

Bass: Guide Sam Williams reports, “The overcast days have lowered the water temperature, and the river has dropped a little. The baitfish are still holding in the shallows where you find cover. The corps has had some spraying done in the past few weeks, some of the grass you have been fishing will be gone soon. The early morning topwater bite is still active, with spinnerbaits and buzzbaits as well as frogs getting bites. A topwater hard bait is a good choice. Work it slow—wait for the ripples to dissipate before you move it. The explosion on these baits will get your heart running at high speed. Jigs and Texas-rigged Trick Worms are a great choice when the morning bite quits. Work the same water for a while. Locate deeper cover and structure, and work it with heavy jigs, big spinnerbaits and cranks. Carolina rigs with big worms and Senkos do well.”

Bream: “Worms along the banks are getting some fish. Brush and blowdowns are a good place to work,” Sam said.

Crappie: “Tree piles and deeper cover are producing some nice slabs,” Sam said.

Catfish: Good. “Jugging is fun, or bottom fishing on creek drops will get a nice mess for the supper table. Worms and cut bait are the best choices now.”
