Late Summer Bass Fishing on Alabama's Mitchell Lake By Reed Montgomery Reeds Guide Service (205) 663-1504 Website www.fishingalabama.com Impounded 1923 Lake level Full Pool 312.0

* Early to mid August displayed air temps ranging from the mid 80's to low 90's. The latter part of the month it got even hotter! With daytime air temperatures near 100 degrees predicted for several days this week, many anglers have resorted to fishing early in the day, late in the day or at night, when its cooler. Some anglers just stay home until fall arrives! But if you can stand the heat you can still fool a few good bass into biting. Football head jigs, deep diving crankbaits and suspending jerk baits fool both big largemouth bass and Coosa River breed of spotted bass. * Concentrating your efforts along the deeper main lake ledges and drop offs, along creek mouths, deep cuts and pockets, and the lakes headwaters (situated below upper Lay lake dam) are suggested. Any sudden, rainy period is a welcome sight. Bass should move shallow when it does get cloudy or rain occurs like evening thundershowers. So just be there! Or you can always call (205) 663-1504 on Reeds Guide Service..first! Mitchell Lake's oldest, professional bass fishing only guide service, guiding on all Alabama lakes for over 40 years."

Yes, although its hot in the low-to-upper 90′s, keep in mind, there will always be numbers of big, largemouth bass mostly found lingering in and around the multiple variety of aquatic reeds. These are catchable bass! The best lure right now would be an imitation frog. These fish are eating frogs day and night. Fishing like this requires strong rods and braided line to catch the Bass and keep them from getting tangled up by bringing them to the boat fast.
