Summer is almost over… fishing is at its best right now

August 26th, 2013 by Lamar Patton

We’ve certainly had an eventful month on the lake.   The Turkey Creek flood was devastating to many families and businesses, that are still trying to recover.  The very afternoon of it, the Corps of engineers opened spillways, just to keep Table Rock in check. I’m happy to report that all lakes in the White River system being in check. Bull shoals still a little high, but they appear to be running off about .33 per day, so time and dry weather will take care of that.

We’ve been catching nice fish the past week or so, using spoons, trout magnets and maribou jigs. Bait fishing is good with orange, sunrise or pink, mix them with white.

The lake is very clear.  Make sure you have your line very light.  2# for jigs and trout magnets… heavier for spoons and cranks. Certainly no more than 6

Labor day is usually the end of the summer season for families. We certainly enjoy the family fishing season the most.  Thanks to all the Moms and Dads and Grandparents that brought their kids down to enjoy Trout fishing, in my opinion on a beautiful lake.

Get down here and enjoy the holiday, and make you’re plans to come during the fall and enjoy the cool and the color.


See you on the lake,
