Fishing Report

Paul B. Johnson State Park - 11/13/2017 10:22:46 AM

Bream fishing is excellent along the dam and in the shallows along the back of the lake.  They can be caught with crickets or worms in shallow water or near structure. Anglers fishing for bass should try near lily pads and structure with soft plastics or frogs fished on the lily pads.  Crappie fishing is on the rise as temperatures drop.  They can be caught in deeper water along the dam and by trolling mid lake. Minnows seem to be the best bet. Catfish are being caught with hot dogs and liver fished on the bottom. 

Water Temp: 71°F

Visibility: 44 in.

Note: bass length limit regulations which are in place at Geiger Lake: the bag limit is 10 bass/day the slot limit is 18 - 22 in. (none can be in possession) with one fish allowed over 22 in.   Statewide creel limits apply to all other species.
