Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – March 2010

GON Staff | February 23, 2010

Sinclair: Level: 0.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 43 to 46 degrees. Clarity: Muddy.

Bass: Good. Mike Cleveland said the fish are already starting to pull up a little on Sinclair. Fish small crankbaits in the ditches on the spawning flats and around rock seawalls and rip-rap. A No. 5 Shad Rap in blue/chartreuse or any other bright color should produce in the muddy water, and a Rat-L-Trap should do well also. Mike said if the warm weather hangs around a while, the fish should do their thing. Toward the end of March, he expects to be doing some blind bed fishing with jigs or Texas-rigged lizards in flats and pockets. The spinnerbait should come into play for fish moving into and out of spawning areas.

Good. Allan Brown reports, “Fishing is good in Crooked Creek, Rooty Creek and Nancy Branch. The fish are still in 15 to 20 feet of water but will move shallow as the water starts to warm. Water is stained to muddy from the recent rains, but it is clearing up fast. Trolling 1/16-oz. jigs has been paying off well. Acid rain, bubblegum and black/green/black are the best colors. As the water warms by the middle of the month, troll 1/32-oz. jigs in shallow water 5 to 6 feet deep for best results.”
