Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – June 2007

GON Staff | May 29, 2007

Sinclair: Level: Down 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 73-75 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Fair. The bass are moving into summer-time patterns. Kim Carver says fish the grass with topwater lures at daylight. A white Zoom Horny Toad is good on very bright days. If it’s a darker day, black or dark colors are good. After first thing in the morning, fish the lake ledges and the points — Carolina-rig if they aren’t moving water, if they are moving water throw a deep-diving crankbait. Kim says in the evening they don’t move up until after dark, and you can catch them on shallow-running crankbaits like a Shad Rap around the dock lights. A lot of small fish in the 12- to 14-inch range are still on the docks, and you can catch them flipping a Zoom green-pumpkin lizard.

Crappie: Good. Allan Brown said the spawn is over, and the fish are in the deeper water. “Shooting a jig under main-lake docks up the river is producing good amounts of fish right now,” said Allan. Look for docks in deeper water for a better chance than on shallow docks. Allan likes a 1/32-oz. jig head with a black-and-green, pink or pink-and-white grub. Allan said a lot of colors will work, you just have to figure out what they want. This pattern should hold until it gets really hot in mid to late June when Allan suggests fishing after dark around the dock lights on the same baits that are working during the day. The fish are biting good at night right now. Allan said the best places are anywhere from Crooked Creek up to Sandy Run.
