Fishing Report

Elvis Presley Lake - 11/13/2017 7:59:47 AM

Water temps are now in the low 60’s and should significantly drop after this week’s cold snap. Bass reports are mostly coming from the main lake points. Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics, suspending jerkbaits and shallow to medium running crankbaits have been the lures to throw. With the cold snap predicted this week, you may want to slow down and scale down your presentation. Smaller finesse jigs and worms like shakeyheads and dropshots should warrant some strikes. The bream have slowed down some as the water continues to cool. Most bream are being caught by tight-lining red wigglers in 8 – 10 ft of water around cover particularly the deeper laydowns where the old tornado damage occurred. Crappie anglers are picking up a few fish at the drain structure and targeting suspended fish along the creek channel in 12 – 18 ft of water. Also try some of the laydowns along the deeper banks. Crappie jigs or minnows are both catching fish. A few catfish are being caught along the drop-offs in the lake. Tight-lining nightcrawlers and minnows seems to be the technique of choice.
