Fishing Report

Prentiss Walker Lake - 8/9/2017 9:29:55 AM

Temperature 87  Visibility 28"


The bass bite has been slow over last week with spinner baits and crank baits having most of the success.  Several fish in the 1 to 3 lb. range as well as  a 4 and a 6 pound fish were recently harvested.  With the summer heat, early morning and late afternoon are the best times to fish.


Fish may be anywhere in the water column so try multiple depths until fish are located. Trolling in these areas with minnows or jigs are very productive ways to catch crappie at this time of the year.  No current report at this time.

Catfish can be targeted in deep water around creek ledges and structure. Worms, liver and blood baits will be best choices for baits.  Some nice fish were recently caught in 11 to 12 feet of water using livers.

Bream fishing still continues to be good over the past week.   Several large fish close to the 1 lb. range were taken over the last week.   Redworms fished close to the bottom and/or crickets fished around structure in 4 to 8 ft. are producing good results.
