Water Temp: 52.3 to 53.8
Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 feet visibility)
Report: The bass are holding in 21 to 40 feet of water and jigs are still taking bass from 2 1/2 to 4 pounds. The cold weather has kept most anglers away from the lake. Bank anglers fishing for trout are also staying away. Bass are holding on and around rock structure and brush piles in deeper water also fish are holding on humps in depths of 30 feet or deeper. Green pumpkin,black,green crystal/blue,black flake jigs in 3/8 or 1/2 oz football head trailers 156 yamamoto 5" single tail grubs. This combo has been working here now going on 3 weeks now.
er weather has slowed them some but you can still put some nice bass in the boat in several hour of fishing. Water is dingy/stained and still coming up but not to bad fish will still bite.
Tips: Fish slow work the structure you target long cast let the bait settle crawl the bait slowly back to the boat by not losing contact with the bottom. Also vertical jigging here this time of the year is proved too be a very good method for catching the bigger bass that are being targeted. I do both and they work really well for me.
