Line side fishing is good. I know I am sounding like a broken record but nothing has change in the last 3 weeks. The fishing right now is the best I have ever seen in Oct . The better fish are still out over the river channel. And the schoolers are still up shallow and can be caught off points, humps and flats. The lake is still in turn over and the fish are on the move. This week I have caught good numbers Stripers and Hybrids out over the river channel fishing 40 feet deep with live bait, and then again pulling umbrella rigs on a 18 foot bottom. The fish that are out over the river channel seem to be on the bigger size. But the ones that are up shallow are more willing to eat. Trolling the umbrella rig bite is probably the best over all bite. But look for these fish to be on the smaller size. This week we have been pulling my rigs 75to 80 feet behind the boat on a 16 to 20 bottom. These fish are on the move. So make sure you cover a lot of water. We caught fish as far north as the S turns this week all the way south to the dam. Top water bite is dead and we have seen very limit top water action this week. And most of it seems to be spotted bass. Look for the top water bite to pick up after the lake finishes turning over.
