TRACE STATE PARK:
Water temps are running in the mid 80’s. Not much change to report as the heat of late summer has slowed things down a bit. The bass anglers are reporting a decent bite around points, coves, and creek channels in 5-25 ft. of water with topwater, big t-rigged plastic worms, and crankbaits for best results. The bream reports are slow to fair. The road bed near the old swimming area is holding some bream in 6-10 ft of water, and on the sand flat in 14-25 ft. Cork fishing, dragging the bottom, and tightlining using crickets, meal worms, and red wigglers. The crappie reports are few, but some anglers are hitting the concrete drain structure, as well as deeper points and structure with some success. The best pattern has been fishing 9-25 ft with both minnows and jigs. The catfish reports are fair and are coming from the day-use area and in the little lake. Tight-lining livers or shrimp has been the best pattern.
