reelfoot lake fishing report

Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
October 14, 2011

    Reelfoot Lake is about 14'' below pool level.  The normal lake level is 282.20. The lake is in the 280.95 range right now so slow navigation is advised. Water color is good all over the lake. Surface temps this week were in the 68 to 72 degree range.

   Bluegill: Slow: Some scattered bluegill were being caught by anglers tossing worms and crickets around parameters of grass and stumps out form shorelines.

   Crappie: Great!: Crappie continue to bite good as anglers are finding good numbers of fish showing up in   8 to14 foot depth range. Fishing minnows and some jigs tipped with minnows. More good crappie fishing on the horizon so better take advantage of this fall fling underway. Remember, the limit is 30 Crappie per day per man. There are no size limits on Reelfoot Lake.

   Bass: Fair: Bass action has been fair with some flurry of activity at times when wind and cloud cover entered the picture. Bass are biting around the pads and duck weed on top water baits.

  Catfish: Slow:

  Stripes: Good: Catching good numbers of fish on pin minnows and road runners. Look for the stripes surfacing during day.

The trees seem to be changing now on a daily basis. Not every day is perfect but your odds of getting good fishing conditions this time of year make it well worthwhile to plan a fall fishing trip.
