TRACE STATE PARK:
Water temps are slowly falling and days are growing shorter, which means the falling feeding action is right around the corner. The bass bite is still good. The deeper points and creek channel ledges are still holding good fish. Best depths have been in the 12-15ft range around points, drop-offs and creek channels. The best baits have been t-rigged 10 to 12 inch plastic worms, spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Some are targeting the shallow bite early and late as well as during overcast conditions with topwater baits like spooks and buzzbaits, however, the deeper bite has provide more and larger fish. The bream reports have been fair to good. Anglers are still catching fish along deeper structure along the creek channels. Tight-lining crickets or meal worms are the best techniques. The crappie reports are starting to pick back up with the cooling water temps. The piers are producing quite a few fish, but the average size is a bit small. Look for the crappie bite to only getr better as we move into fall. Try both jigs and minnows to see which the fish prefer. No catfish report this week.
