Trace State Park - 2/23/2015


The fishing continues to be slow as the wet and cold conditions kept many anglers off the lake. The bass seem to be holding on drop-offs, and some anglers are reportedly catching fish as deep as 30ft close to the dam. Anglers are using finesse tactics like shakeyheads and dropshot rigs to catch some of these fish. Other tactics worth mentioning are silver buddys and jigging spoons. Other anglers are targeting some of the shallower fish with swimbaits and suspending jerkbaits around the standing timber. A spinnerbait or lipless crankbait might attract a reaction bite from some of those lethargic fish. The crappie bite has slow as well. Slowly trolling and casting tube and curly tail jigs seem to be the lures of choice. Target deep water structure and cover along creek channels and along the dam. Anglers are reporting that the fish are stacked up and suspended over the deeper waters of the creek channel and around the dam structure. For bream, target the ditches and creek channels adjacent to spawning areas as they will hold pre-spawn bream. Tight-lining meal worms and redworms are the best techniques for targeting these pre-spawn fish.
