TRACE STATE PARK:
The bass anglers are reporting a slow to fair bite as the dog days are proving tough to overcome for some anglers. Target points, coves, and creek channels in 2-8 ft. early and late in the day with topwater baits and T-rigged worms. The 10-25ft depth range is being targeted during the day till close to sun down with big t-rigged plastic worms and crankbaits. The bream reports are fair to good. Bream are being caught on jigs, crickets, and wigglers in 5-20ft of water around flats next to creek channels. Tightlining is the best technique. The few crappie reports are fair as most anglers are structure and creek channels in 10-25 ft of water in many of the areas the bass fishermen are targeting. Both minnows and jigs are catching fish. The catfish reports are fair and are coming from the day-use area, the little lake and in the creek channel in 15-35 ft. Tight-lining liver, nightcrawlers, or cutbait has been the best pattern.
