Lake Lamar Bruce


Monday, March 27, 2017 4:28 PM

Water temps are running in the low 60's with clear water conditions at the time of this report. The bass and bream bite is good right now. For bass, anglers are throwing spinnerbaits, lipless crankbaits, Texas-rigged plastics, and jerkbaits around transition areas as the fish are staging before going shallow for the spawn. Look for the spawn to start soon if it hasn't already. Texas-rigged lizards and senkos are great lures around beds. Bream anglers continue to fish along the bottom with meal and redworms. Most are fishing off and around the wooden and earthen piers. A reminder that MDWFP stocked approximately 500 trout in the pond ranging from 9 - 15 inches. There is a 3 fish per person limit with no size restriction. Anglers must have a fishing permit and valid fishing license to participate. The crappie report continues to be poor, but anglers are still targeting fish along the levee and around the drain structure and also along the drop offs as the fish are starting to pull up shallow for the spawn. Try both jigs and minnows to see which the fish prefer. The catfish bite is considered fair with a few anglers catching some fish of the ends of the wooden and earthen piers using redworms and stinkbait.

Anglers planning on hitting the lake need to remember there is a slot limit on bass. All bass between 16 - 22 inches must be released immediately, and only one fish over 22 inches may be kept. The daily bag limit for bass is 10. Any and all walleye caught must be released immediately. The bream limit is 100 aggregate (both bluegill and redear) total per angler. The daily limit on crappie is 30. The catfish daily limit is 10.

Anglers are still catching trout out for the pond.
