The bass bite remains consistent! Anglers are catching bass between 3-8 pounds. The bass are in the 15-30 ft range. Drop shotting purple, pink and green colored plastics works best for catching bass. Senko’s and night crawlers are also working great! If the algae remains at the surface of the water, try using plastics that are a different shade of green than the algae.
Anglers are catching many stripers between 5-6 pounds! Trolling with flies works best for catching striper. When shad and trout are breaking the surface, it’s best to use lures that mimic them for top water boils. Derek Quinonez, Daniel Quinonez and Kenny Baldwin caught a total of 18 striper trolling flies! Kevin Deemer caught his limit of ten striper also trolling flies!
There were few reports of catfish caught this week between 4-5 pounds. Stink bait and cut bait work best for catfish.
There were few panfish caught this week a pound and under. Night crawlers and mealworms work best for catching panfish.
Anglers are catching trout between 4-6 pounds! Powerbait, night crawlers and mini jigs work best for trout.
