Fishing Report

Elvis Presley Lake - 8/14/2017 9:51:57 AM

Most of the bite continues to be slow. Catfish anglers are targeting deeper water around the points with tightlined nightcrawlers, liver and cutbait with decent success. The bream bite is fair with most fish coming on tight-lined crickets and wigglers fished in 3 – 8 ft of water. The few crappie anglers hitting the lake have been picking up a few fish along the dam near the drain structure and on structure in other areas in 15 – 20 ft. of water. Minnows have been the best bait as of late, but jigs might get you a few bites as well. Bass fishing is slow to fair. Anglers are still catching a few on topwater baits early and late but during the day Texas/Carolina-rigged soft plastics are getting most of the bites. A few anglers are getting some bites on a deep diving crankbait as well. Best areas have been the deeper mainlake points, humps and creek channel. If you think you are around fish and just not getting bit, downsizing your presentation may help get you some bites.
