Fishing Report
August 13, 2014
As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 658.72 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 659 msl). (Updated 8-13-2014) Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock saidot Much has changed in the past month since my last fishing report. The lake is around the 659 level and dropping slowly. The water temperature at the surface is in the 80's around the lake. The thermocline is down around the 30-35 foot level depending on where you go in the lake. The visibility is still great on the main lake. The fishing hasn't changed much since last report except the fish seem to be a little deeper in the day. Most of the reports say they are in the 30 to 35 to 40 foot level just past the thermocline. That is where they are usually are this time of year. You might be able to catch some of them shallow early as the sun rises or late as the sun sets. But the other times of the day you would need to fish deeper . this goes for most species of fish. I have seen largemouth bass hang shallow all day if they have some type of crock ledge, brush or cover to get in. Especially if they are trying to eat bluegill which can also be shallow all day. The smallmouth and spotted bass usually like the cooler non sun water. The walleye are rarely shallow this time of the year due to the water temperature. They need cooler water to survive in. Most of the reports I have gotten are that they are in the 35 to 40 foot range.
