Fishing Report

Elvis Presley Lake - 12/29/2017 8:47:41 AM

Late Fall/Winter fishing report: Most effort during the cold months will be towards crappie and bass. Crappie can be found suspended off mainlake points, along the creek channel and also relating to sunken brushtops. Jigs or minnows work equally well. Those bass fishing have historically caught fish on crankbaits and small finesse worms, but lures like the Alabama-rigs and suspending jerkbaits are also good techniques to try especially if the fish have pulled up shallower during warming trends. Weekly fishing reports will pick back up in February.

MDWFP personnel sank donated Christmas trees in Elvis Presley Lake recently.  The brush piles are a good way to upcycle leftover Christmas trees and create fishing hot spots. Here are the coordinates for those brush piles.
