TRACE STATE PARK:
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.
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.
