Lake Weiss Fishing Report July 2018
Weiss: Level: 0.1 feet low. Temp: Mid 80s. Clarity: Slight stain.
Bass: Guide and tournament pro Mike Carter reports, “The hot summer months are here, and Lake Weiss has gotten into it’s summer bass patterns, which include focusing on the deeper areas of the lake. The early morning and late evening bite is still consistent with topwater lures such as Stutter Steps being fished parallel along the many seawalls on the lake, especially the ones located around the deeper areas. Later in the day, moving out to the deeper creek and river ledges will produce some consistent action with lures such as Choo Choo Rocker and football jigs and shaky-head worms in 7- to 10-inch sizes, depending on the aggressiveness of the fish located in these areas. If the ledges aren’t producing well, moving to the many docks located throughout the lake, especially the ones with more structure, can get some solid action with shaky-head worms and small Texas-rigged plastics. It’s the hot time of year, so stay hydrated, and have some fun.” Guide Mark Collins reports, “Bass fishing is good, with most bass having moved to a deeper, summer pattern. Docks and brushpiles in deeper water are producing fish. Points, roadbeds and creek channel ledges are also producing fish. With all the rain, some bass are still in the grass.”
Crappie: Guide Mark Collins reports, “A lot of Weiss crappie are on deeper brushpiles and creek channels ledges. Spider rigging with live minnows is the way to catch these summer fish. Shooting docks is producing fish.”
