Lake Jackson Fishing Report June 2009
Jackson: Level: 0.8 feet above full pool. Temp: Low to mid 70s. Clarity: Clear in the main lake and stained up the rivers.
Bass: Eric Perkins reports, “It’s topwater time on Jackson, and soon the fish will pull on out deep. The shad spawn is over, and the mayfly hatch will be here soon. I saw my first one at the house yesterday (May 25). We have been catching some good fish out on the walls on the main lake early on top. Ricos and Pop-Rs are working the best. Also, Sammys and Spooks will work well. This only lasts about an hour or two, but it can be real fun. After the sun gets up, we have been flipping and pitching docks with a new bait from Wackem Crazy Baits called a Crazy Bug and another called a Wild Thing. Both baits are working great. Another bait we have been skipping is Net Boy’s flipping jig with a green-pumpkin chunk. All baits are either green pumpkin or some dark color. When the mayflies hatch, those three baits can’t be beat. I just flip or pitch it under overhanging limbs where the mayflies hatch. Ride until you see the birds or ducks feeding on them. June is a transition month. Look for the offshore humps and main-lake points to heat up soon.”
