Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – August 2021

GON Staff | July 28, 2021

Sinclair: Level: 1.4 feet low. Temp: High 80s to low 90s. Clarity: The lake is clear except around Twin Bridges and some pockets with incoming water after a heavy shower.

Bass: Tournament angler Karl Pingry reports, “Bass fishing is still decent, according to Ed at Lakeside Chevron. Big worms in black emerald and junebug red in the backs of the coves is still producing. The new pattern working is a bubblegum Trick Worm parallel to the bank in the areas full of hydrilla grass. Fishing the hydrilla with big worms and big lizards continues to produce. If you find the mayfly hatches, use a black or white popping frog or a black buzzbait to generate strikes. If you go up Little River, some bass are being caught on the docks with a finesse worm or a ‘do nothing worm.’ Bass are being caught on plastics and really aren’t chasing moving baits at this time of year. I expect the fishing to remain this way for August and most of September unless we get a tropical storm to drastically drop the water temps. So fish slow and patiently, and get on the water early or late to beat the heat.”
