TRACE STATE PARK:
Trace Lake continues to be a hot
spot for some quality bass fishing. The big females continue to eat as it took
over 25lbs to win a tournament there this past weekend. The shallower water is
warming up fast and the fish continue to move up along the flats to spawn. Most
anglers are targeting points and pockets with jerkbaits, spinnerbaits and
t-rigged plastics. Ditches leading back to spawning areas will constantly have
fish moving in and out of the shallows as we go throughout the spawn for both
bass and crappie. The crappie bite is fair to good and seems to be picking up.
Most anglers are still targeting 8-12 feet of water, with both crappie jigs and
minnows working right now but can change daily. The bream anglers are starting
to pick up some nice fish in deeper water near bedding areas and also along the
levee. Best depths are 6-8 ft. Best bait has been meal worms.
*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.
