TRACE STATE PARK:
The summer time heat has arrived and the surface water temps are in the high 80s. According to the folks at the Park, the bass Fishing is fair to good. Anglers are targeting fish all throughout the water column. Topwaters are working well along the shallow flats and points early and late in the day. During the day, anglers are moving off shore and are fishing humps and ditches with T-rigged/C-rigged plastics, crankbaits and jigs. The bream bite is good, with anglers targeting 8-15ft of water with success. The best techniques have been dragging or tightlining crickets and redworms along the bottom. The crappie bite is fair as the heat has put a damper on the bite. The few anglers targeting crappie are hitting cover in 10-15ft of depth with jigs and minnows. Catfishing is fair. Most folks are catching them in the small lake behind the offce. Tight lining liver and nightcrawlers seems to be the best technique.
