PFA Fishing Reports – July 2006
Evans County PFA: Level: Down one foot. Temp: 82-84 degrees. Clarity: 20 to 24 inches.
Bass: Good for quality bass around the pier, fish attractors, and lily pads using live shiners and artificial plastics like Super Flukes. During July look for smaller 12-15 inch bass running young schools of gizzard shad.
Bream: Good. Anglers have been catching good numbers of bluegill. This bite should continue throughout July and August. Anglers have found concentrations of bream in four to five feet of water near points with lily pads. Almost all fish are caught with worms and crickets. Do not overlook the fish feeders for a quick bite.
Catfish: Due to the recent stocking of 2,500 catfish for a Kids Fishing Event, anglers are enjoying great catfish action on Lake Longleaf. Most fish have been caught in five to seven feet of water in early morning or late evening. Tight-lining chicken livers and worms is your best bet.
Marben Farm PFA: Level: Most of the ponds are several inches low. Clarity: 16 to to 24 inches. Temp.: Low to mid 80s.
Bass: As usual for this time of year, early morning and late afternoon have been the most productive for bass. Bass in the 4- to 7-lb. range are fairly common, with the majority being caught on plastic worms, jigs and lizards adjacent to creek channels and structure. Many of the smaller ponds on the area offer opportunities for bank anglers to catch some nice bass.
Bream: Bream fishing continues to be steady, with several good catches reported from some of the smaller ponds using crickets and waxworms. Fly fishermen have reported good catches when beds are located.
Other: Yellow perch are occasionally caught in Bennett Lake by anglers fishing on the bottom for bream. Bullheads (speckled cats) are frequently caught in Margery Lake.
