Lake Eufaula Fishing Reports – November 2023

GON Staff | October 25, 2023

Eufaula: Level: 1.1 below 188. Temp: 68 degrees. Clarity: Water clarity is cloudy up the river. There’s a good stain from Cowikee Creek south.

Bass: Capt. Sam Williams, of Hawks Fishing Guide Service, reports, “I had the privilege of fishing with Randy Miller this past week. We started the morning working rip-rap with squarebill shallow cranks in a threadfin pattern. The fog began to settle in just as the sun began to rise, so we headed up river to some more spots. We made it to the Witches Ditch and got off the river and began to get a few hits on Texas-rigged junebug and watermelon-colored worms. Randy switched to a black Senko rigged with a nail weight and began to get some better bumps but no hook-ups. As the sun burned off the fog, we moved back on the river and worked some deep trashpiles on the river drop. As we moved north on the bank, we began to realize the bass were swimming the bait back at the boat or parallel with the boat. When we began to reel up the slack and set the hook, we began to put good keepers in the boat. We also tried lipless crankbaits, Spooks and shallow cranks where the shad began to work. Spinnerbaits, ChatterBaits and frogs are doing okay where you can find any pad cover. Everything needs to be worked slow and deliberate as the fish transition to their winter pattern. The river is finally holding sort of steady. If we can maintain this level through the winter, the shore cover will be able to grow.”

Multiple Species: Capt. Sam Williams reports, “Crappie are still holding on the drops in 10 to 18 feet of water in trashpiles eating minnow-tipped jigs. We are seeing boats on some of the flats anchored down fishing for bream with wigglers. Catfish are doing okay on jugs baited with cutbait and crawlers on the creek ledges. The bottom fishermen are getting a good mess on crawlers and chunks of cutbait fishing the deep areas on the creek drops. These river cats are the best-tasting catfish anywhere. Please watch our Facebook page and keep up with the progress of the Lee King Memorial Alabama Classic Bass Tournament as we get our web page back in working order. We are planning our March and September benefit tournaments for 2024 as we continue to support Niemann-Pick disease research for our 24th year as the doctors search for a cure for these precious, terminal children. Take a youngster fishing or hunting and enjoy what God has provided for us to enjoy and make those memories that will be shared for generations. Love one another and pray for all our folks in uniform and their families.”
