Fishing Report

Elvis Presley Lake - 5/24/2017 10:36:13 AM

Things are starting to slow down a bit after the first wave of the bream spawn has somewhat concluded. The bream bite continues to be good. Casting roadrunners and beetlespins are good ways to locate possible bream beds. Once found, cork fishing or tightlining redworms and/or crickets work very well. Look for areas that are relatively flat with a sandy or gravel bottom for best results. The catfish reports are fair with a few nice cats showing up in 3 – 10 ft of water close to bream beds. Liver and nightcrawlers are both catching some nice channel cats. The bass bite remains fair, with shallow points holding the most fish. Senkos and small finesse worms are catching bass in the coves around bream beds and buzzbaits, frogs and other topwater baits are good choices in the backs of the pockets around any woody or grassy cover.
