Trace State Park - 5/18/2015


The bass bite continues to be great for quality bites. Bass are being caught on the points and other transition areas as the fish move toward their summertime spots. If you get a quality bite in a spot, make sure to fish the area thoroughly as more fish are likely nearby. Crankbaits, jigs and big T-rigged worms are working right now. The crappie bite is fair with a few anglers catching some fish. Anglers are targeting both shallow and deeper woody cover with decent success. Both minnows and jigs are producing bites, but one may out produce the other on any given day. The bream are done spawning but are still holding close to traditional bedding areas around any cover. Tighlined crickets, redworms are working. Small spinners, like beetlespins and roadrunners, should help you locate active fish. Once located, slow down and tightline/cork fish the area. Catfish reports are fair as most action is coming from the small lake behind the office and in the day use area as around 350 cats were stocked there this past week. Tightlining night crawlers and liver seems to be the best technique.   

*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.
