Lineside fishing is Fair at best!!
The lake was stained from Little River all the way to Clear Creek. But with all of the rain we had on Wednesday, I look for the whole lake to be stained and muddy by the weekend.
Finding clear water is going to be the key. The back of the creeks were holding fish earlier this week. But with all the rain we had, I’m not sure if they will stick around with the rolling. I guess we will find out in the next couple of days.
Freelines and planer boards in the morning and late afternoon mid-lake and in south-end creeks will be your best bet until the main lake clears up.
After the sun comes up switch to downlines and ease your way out to the middle of the creeks. As the water starts to clear (if it ever does) fishing should get better on the main lake.
We were by no means loading the boats before the rain, but the fish we are catching are good fish.
Trolling is still slow but is getting better. The best times seems to be midday. I have been pulling my rigs at 2.4 – 3.3 mph about 100’ behind the boat. The trolling bite is just around the corner. I really think once the lake clears the trolling bite will get as good as the live bait bite.
The topwater bite was close to breaking loose before we got all the rain. I look for it to return as the lake starts to clear.
