Fishing Report

Elvis Presley Lake - 9/19/2017 12:44:41 PM

Water temps are rising again with the day time temps being in the 80’s. Bass anglers are still catching a few fish on topwater lures early and late in the day. During the day, they are targeting points and off shore structure (particularly around the creek channel) with Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics. You may get a few more bites if you downsize your presentation with shakeyhead and drop shot finesse plastics like straight tail worms and baby brush hogs. Green pumpkin and watermelon are always good colors for soft plastics. The bream bite is fair. Most anglers continue to catch a few fish on tightlined redworms and crickets around shoreline cover and laydowns as the bream aren’t on the beds. The 5 – 8 ft has been the most productive depth range. The crappie bite is slow with some being caught in 18 – 20 ft. Jigs and minnows have been working as one can out produce the other on any given day. The catfish bite continues to be fair. Tightlining night crawlers and/or liver has been the technique of choice. Most anglers are targeting drop-offs and deeper laydowns.
