Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
The past week has provided some good fishing on Reelfoot. Bluegill are still bedding up and there have been some good catches. Catfish and bass are faring well also.
Lake level is about 5 inches above pool . Water temp was 84 before the rain. Probably dropped a couple of degrees with the influx of cooler water. Here's the rest:
Bluegill: Bluegill fishing remains good around the pads on crickets.
Crappie: Had a few fair catches recently even though the prime season has passed. Some fish are coming out of 10-14 feet of water on minnows.
Bass: Another pretty good week for bass fishing also. Anglers have done well around the bonnets/lily pads early morning and late afternoon.
Baits are the usual: tube jigs (green pumpkin), spinnerbaits (white/chrt), spoons, buzzbaits and almost any lure that looks like a minnow.
Catfish: Still good around the log stick ups. Night crawlers and stink bait working well.
Stripes (yellow bass) - Slow. They will pick up toward the end of the month.
