Fishing Report – August 29, 2019
Anglers heading to the water should expect temperatures in the high 80’s throughout the weekend.
Bass fishing has started to pick back up as largemouth are becoming more active with the cooler water temps. Anglers have been fishing with lures like the BX Minnow by Rapala, Strike King Bitsy Bug Mini Jig and Bomber Model A Crankbait as the bass are starting to move into their fall patterns.
Smallmouth fishing in rivers has started to pick up as the water levels start to lower. Try fishing a small crankbait like the KVD 1.0 Square Bill by Strike King or a weightless 4” Senko by Gary Yamamoto in deeper pockets of the river.
Perch fishing has slowed down as schools have started to spread out. Anglers are still catching perch in areas of water 30 to 50 feet deep.
Steelhead have been caught in deeper water 80 to 110 feet deep on different spoons and plugs.
Bluegills and other panfish have been caught using crickets or wax worms. Fisherman have also been using the Sabiki Rig by P-Line tipped with wax worms to fill their limit.
