Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – September 2008
Sinclair: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 80-82 degrees. Clarity: Slight stain on the main lake. Heavy stain up the creeks.
Bass: Good. Mike Cleveland said the fish are starting to move up with falling water temps. “They finally went to biting on Sinclair,” he said. “The deep water stuff is over, and they’ve moved up where they’re supposed to be.” First thing in the morning, Mike said there’s a decent topwater bite on the seawalls around mayfly hatches. “Find the mayflies; find the bream, and you’ll find the bass,” he said. Throw a buzzbait or Pop-R. Once the sun gets up, the dock bite is the ticket right now. Fish main-lake docks in 3 to 5 feet of water with an Ol Monster worm rigged on a shaky head. Good colors are black/blue and blackberry. This pattern should last through September, and the fish should move progressively farther into the creeks.
