Lake Weiss Fishing Report – September 2006

GON Staff | August 29, 2006

Weiss: Level: 3.3 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 80s in the morning, upper 80s in the afternoon. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Fair. According to Jason Tucker largemouths are being caught on medium-depth running crankbaits like a Shad Rap or Bandit 100 series in shad colors. Fish shallow stump flats inside the mouths of the creeks.

Crappie: Still out on the ledges and are being caught on bottom-bumping rigs and minnows. Fish ledge edges in 12 to 16 feet of water.
Stripers: The striped bass are as far up the rivers as they can get, and with the lake down, it’s hard to get to them.

White Bass: There has been good schooling activity from Yellow Creek down toward the powerhouse lake late in the day. White Rooster Tails are a good bet when the fish come up.

Catfish: Jug fishermen are wearing them out, said Jason. Any flat with eight to 12 feet of water should produce catfish on cut shad on the bottom.
