Lake Weiss Fishing Reports – March 2021

GON Staff | February 24, 2021

Weiss: Level: 3.2 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 40s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Guide and tournament pro Mike Carter reports, “The water level on Weiss has started rising more consistently now with all of the recent rains. This will create a lot of stained to muddy creeks and even main-lake areas. Using red and chartreuse 1/4- or 1/2-oz. Rat-L-Traps and MR6 crankbaits around main-lake points and rock walls will be a consistent pattern for these conditions as bass get on a strong prespawn pattern and feed heavily in March. ”

Crappie: Guide Mike Carter reports, “The water levels getting back closer to normal means it is time to go after some major slab crappie for the dinner table. That’s a major ticket on this lake. Trolling creek ledges or my personal favorite of shooting docks will help in putting some nice fillets in the freezer. Our favorite time of year has started, so get out and enjoy it!”

Guide Mark Collins reports, “The crappie fishing is good, and they are being caught longline trolling with Jiffy Jigs. JJ13, JJ17 and JJ20 are the colors that have been catching fish for me. The crappie are suspended in the river and creek channels 7 to 10 feet deep. Some fish are starting to move into the spawning bays, but with the cold weather moving in again, they will probably move back out. Some fish are still being caught spider rigging with minnows, on the river channel ledges.”
