TRACE STATE PARK:
The bass bite continues to be
great for quality bites. Bass are being caught on the points and other
transition areas as the fish move toward their summertime spots. If you get a
quality bite in a spot, make sure to fish the area thoroughly as more fish are
likely nearby. Crankbaits, jigs and big T-rigged worms are working right now. The
crappie bite is fair with a few anglers catching some fish. Anglers are targeting
both shallow and deeper woody cover with decent success. Both minnows and jigs
are producing bites, but one may out produce the other on any given day. The
bream are done spawning but are still holding close to traditional bedding
areas around any cover. Tighlined crickets, redworms are working. Small
spinners, like beetlespins and roadrunners, should help you locate active fish.
Once located, slow down and tightline/cork fish the area. Catfish reports are
fair as most action is coming from the small lake behind the office and in the
day use area as around 350 cats were stocked there this past week. Tightlining
night crawlers and liver seems to be the best technique.
levels will remain down until further notice due to complications with the
levee. An additional boat ramp has been added to help facilitate low water
launching so be careful when launching your boat.
