Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – September 2019
Eufaula: Level: 1 foot below 190 full pool. Temp: Upper 80s to low 90s. Clarity: Lightly stained; clear on the south end.
Bass: Tournament angler Les Bratcher #bigbitebaits #alxrods, of Big Bite Baits, reports, “The fishing on Lake Eufaula is in big time summer mode. It is tough. Due to the excessive heat and high water, the bass seem to be scattered all over the place, making the bite hard to find. What anglers who are having success seem to be talking about most is shallow fish on frogs and plastics. The deep fish seem to be hard to find and are very spooky when do catch one. There are a few deep bass being taken on main-lake ledges using plastics, crankbaits and flutter spoons. Hopefully, pretty soon we will get some cooler air to energize the bite and get us closer to fall conditions. Until next time, tight lines.” Guide Sam Williams reports, “The hot summer pattern is in effect for sure. Shallow bass are slow, but a few are hitting slow-moving plastics outside grass cover. Flipping jigs with chunky trailer baits is also working. Punching the inside grass and pad cover with 1-oz. weights pegged to your hook and using large creature baits is the way to go when the sun gets up. Junebug and blue is a good color choice combination. Be safe on the water in this heat. With the heat factor over 105 degrees, it is easy to get dehydrated in a hurry. Drink plenty of water. Cooler days are coming, and the fishing will get better. Check out our foundation site, www.alabamachildrensclassic.org.”
Crappie: Guide Sam Williams reports, “The Eufaula crappie are scattered, but a few are coming on the man-made cover in 18 to 20 feet using minnows.”
