Fishing Report
November 5, 2014

As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation was 570.89 feet msl (flood pool – 578 msl).

Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is clear and the surface water temperature is 70 to 73 degrees. Black bass are very active and being caught schooling and near structure. The topwater bite is still very good on all areas of the lake. Try a bone-colored Super Spook Jr. or run a 1/6-oz. white Rooster Tail through schooling fish for some great action. Walleye are still biting well on C.C. spoons, jigged vertically, or drop-shotted nightcrawlers. Stripers are good on live bait or slow-trolled, shad-colored crankbaits. The topwater bite has started for these fish; be prepared with a big Zara Spook or C-10 Redfin. Crappie are active and aggressive. They are being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs around 12 to 16 feet deep. Catfish are still good and being caught on rod-and-reel fished near structure with nightcrawlers. Jug lines are effective in these same areas.
