Ronnie at Yore Country Store said fishing has been slow on Eagle Lake, but water temperatures are starting to cool off.
Crappie fishing has been slow, but is picking up a little. Jigs and minnows are the best bets. Piers close to deep water along the south end of the lake are a good place to try and trolling the open water should also produce results.
Bass fishing is fair. Pitch dark color soft plastics and jigs around cypress trees close to deep water. Piers and laydowns near deep water are holding bass. Throwing a crankbait or chatterbait between the piers and near the mouth of Muddy Bayou are producing as well.
Catfishing is slow. Catfish can be caught on worms, liver, or cutbait in and around the cypress trees or by tight lining in open areas. Fishing with trotlines or limb lines is a popular method as well.
Bream fishing is fair this week. Eagle is known for having some nice sized bream. Try crickets, worms, or beetle spins around structure.
