Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
I've been behind on the fishing report, due to vacations and such. But to be honest, it doesn't sound like we missed too much. Fishing overall has been slow except for catfishing lately. So, there's not a lot to say right now. The dog days of summer are setting in.
Water temperature is at 84 degreees. Lake is at pool level. Here's the rest:
Crappie- Fair. You can still catch a few early and late in the day. Try minnows and try deep (10-14 feet). Fish very slow. If you hit a fish or two stay with them. You probably won't tear them up, but they should be bunched up a little right now.
Bass- Slow. Not much else to say.
Bluegill- Slow. The cooler temps lately may have felt good, but it didn't help the bluegill any.
Catfish- Good to excellent. The Strike King stinkbait has been working well lately. The edge of the pads and showing logs are good places to try.
Stripes (Yellowbass)- No reports.
