Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 10/16/2017 11:55:42 AM

Water temps are now in the low to mid 70’s with around 4ft of water clarity. The fishing pressure on the lake is almost zero except for a few bank anglers targeting bream. Those anglers are cork and bottom fishing around any shoreline cover along the boat ramp area and the day use area. For bass, target the deeper laydowns and the shallower ends of the creek channels. Shad patterned lures like spinnerbaits, flukes, crankbaits, and swimbaits should be considered as we move further into autumn and the water temps continue to fall. Don’t overlook a topwater bite in the morning and on into the day as the fall bite heats up. A recent lake evaluation showed that the lake has an over abundance of bass, so remember to keep a few on your next fishing trip to help the overall population. For crappie, target sunken brush and tree tops on the main lake and in the creek channels. Both jigs and minnows should get you some bites, but let the fish dictate what you use. No catfish report this week.
