reelfoot lake fishing report

Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
June 3rd, 2009
It's a good time to fish on Reelfoot. As of the last few days, bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish are all doing well. No matter what the species you can probably catch a mess. Get out there if you can.

Lake level  is around 6 inches above pool level. Water temperatures have really risen and are now around 78 degrees. Here's the rest:

Crappie- Good. Jackie was doing well in 10-15 feet of water with minnows. Catching some on jigs with wax worms in 6-8 feet.

Bass- Good. Hit the shorelines with spinnerbaits (white and/or chartreuse) and worms.

Bluegill-Good. Fish the pads. Both jigs tipped with waxworms and crickets are working well. Jigs are probably out producing crickets just a little, but you should probably take a little of both just in case.

Catfish- Excellent. If you want to catch some Reelfoot Lake catfish, now's the time.

Try the mouths of ditches and up in the ditches. Also around trees in 3-8 feet of water. Nightcrawlers, stinkbait and cut shad are all working well.

Stripes (Yellowbass)- No reports.
