Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
September 27, 2012


The seasons have now traded places and autumn angling is alive and well thanks to some nice weather lately that has worked in favor of fishermen.

 The cooler temperatures have had an influence on surface temperatures which fell a few degrees. Readings this week were in the 70 to 73 degree range. Water color remains clear to light green stain.

Reelfoot Lake is 15 -18" below pool level. The lake will rise some with the area receiving some much needed rain. All ramps are open, but still use caution putting your boat in around the ramps, and motoring across the lake. 

       Crappie: Good:  Fall crappie have been hitting good in depths of 8 to12 feet, jigging the visible stumps and logs. Popular jigs have been Strike King pumpkin seed and June bug. Remember, the limit is 30 Crappie per day per man. There are no size limits on Reelfoot Lake.

   Bass: Good: Bass fishermen continue to find fish around the trees and logs along the shoreline. Tossing spinnerbaits, Rattle Trap style baits and shallow running shad colored crankbaits.

  Catfish: Great: The catfish are biting all over the lake using Strike King stink bait.

  Stripes: Great: The stripes are surfacing and biting on white beetle spins and pin minnows.

             Fall fishing is alive and well.
