Trace State Park - 4/13/2015


The bass bite on Trace continues to be good right now except the quality bite has fallen off a bit. The bass are in all stages of the spawn. Anglers are targeting the spawning flats with spinnerbaits, swimbaits, T-rigged soft plasctics and weightless soft plastics. The spinnerbaits and swimbaits are being used to target active fish that aren’t spawning with the other techniques are being used to target fish on the bed or guarding fry. The crappie reports are fair to good. Most crappie are coming from around shallow structure. Both jigs and minnows are working right now, but one may out produce the other on any given day. The bream bite is fair and picking up with the rising water temps. Most are being caught on primary drop-offs around traditional bedding areas. Jigs, crickets, and red wigglers are all catching fish right now. A few catfish are being caught in the day-use area, but most are being caught along the primary drop-offs just out from spawning areas. Night crawlers, liver, and cut bait are all producing well. 

 *Lake 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.
