 October 15, 2014

Hello everybody! Not many changes in the fishing patterns. Only the depth. The only major changes are the water temperature and thermocline. The water temp is in the mid to upper 60's around the lake. The thermocline is falling fast. I have been doing a lot of diving and it seems to be around the 50-60 foot level. I cant really find a distinct line. This usually means the lake is in the early stages of flipping. This is were the top of the lake gets colder then the bottom and colder water is heavier. So the colder water sinks towards the bottom and forces the warmer water up towards the top. It happens every year around the end of October sometime. It is all keyed to weather and water temperature. Yes this changes the fishing and usually scatters them out to 0 to 60 feet. They could be anywhere in this range. You can usually find them whenever the feed is at. The shad balls roaming, the bluegills, the crawfish, and anything else they can eat. You have to find the food and then you can find the fish. Probably wont be many changes until the end of November. Until then.


patterns below updated - 10-15-14


Bass- With the thermocline around the 60 foot level the bass will be deeper during the day. Early in the day and late in the day you might try some top water baits.

-------- spooning in 50 to 60 feet of water.

--------- plastic baits in 5 to 60 feet of water. Mostly carolina rigged lizards, brush hogs, French fry worms, and 4-7 inch plastic worms.

--------- Swim baits in 5 to 15 feet of water. This has been the hottest pattern esp with the shad balls being shallow.

--------- Top water baits are starting work early in the morning and on cloudy days. Mostly minnow looking flukes but the other top water baits should start soon.

---------spinner baits in 0 to 10 feet of water around the brush on the banks

---  Crank baits in 5 to 15 feet of water on the windy steeper banks

--- split shot a night crawler in 15 to 35 feet of water. This will also work drop shoting


Crappie- when I can get a crappie fisherman to show off their crappie or talk about them this is what they are saying. I know there is some being caught. Most of the brush piles are 20 to 35 feet right now.
--- 1/32 oz or 1/64 oz jigs around the brush piles
--- small minnows when you can get them
--- small spoons around the brush piles.


White Bass - the whites are being caught. Go back in the creeks as far as you can go. Try 0 to 15 feet until you find them. There are reports of surfacing white bass schools around the lake during the day.
--- white jigs, rooster tails, spoons, road runner jigs, rapalas and or anything that looks like a minnow


Walleye -
--------- Split shot a night crawler is working in 40 to 60 feet of water
--------- bottom bouncing with harness and night crawler is producing fish in 40-60 feet of water.
--------- spooning in 40-60 feet of water is producing some walleye
-------- trolling with deep diving baits is producing some fish early in the day and late in the day.
-------- lead core trolling with deep diving baits- 40 -60 feet of water

 

White River:
NOTHING EVER CHANGES ON THE RIVER EXCEPT THE WATER LEVEL!!!  THE FISHING IS ALWAYS GREAT!!  This question gets asked a lot. "When is the best time to fish the river? "  The answer is anytime. The water comes out of the bottom of the lake therefore it is always very cold. It doesn't have the temperature cycle of a normal body of water. It doesn't matter if its 100 degrees out or 10 degrees out. The water temperature stays the same within a few degrees, Therefore, the fishing is always the same and always good. Arkansas stocks the White River with rainbow trout year around so the fishing is good year around. The water level doesn't matter either, you just have to change how you fish. If the water is high then you usually drift and float fish, if its low then you anchor and still fish. Naturally, fly fishing is better when the river is low. SO, COME FISHING WHENEVER YOU CAN!

Hello everybody! The water is cooling off. The fishing has started to change some. The reports are good with most of the fisherman. The water temp is cooling down into the mid to upper 70's. The thermocline is around the 30 - 35 foot level depending on where you take it or ask. They are catching lots of bass shallower now then they were in the summer fishing stretch. We have heard of spinner bait fish shallow on a cloudy or windy day. These have been mostly largemouth bass. There has also been reports of shad plastic baits working shallow up to 15 feet for bass. There are a lot of shad balls working the surface especially late in the day and this is also causing the fish to start to move up shallow to feed. The lake is around the 655 level and still dropping slowly. Haven't seen any change in the walleye or crappie fishing but I expect to see more people fishing soon with the air and water temps falling. The other patterns listed below are still working. Until next time!

Hello everybody! Not Much has changed in the past month since my last fishing report. The lake is around the 659 level and dropping slowly. The water temperature at the surface is in the 80's around the lake. The thermocline is down around the 30-35 foot level depending on where you go in the lake. The visibility is still great on the main lake. The fishing hasn't changed much since last report except the fish seem to be a little deeper in the day. Most of the reports say they are in the 30 to 35 to 40 foot level just past the thermocline. That is where they are usually are this time of year. You might be able to catch some of them shallow early as the sun rises or late as the sun sets. But the other times of the day you would need to fish deeper . this goes for most species of fish. I have seen largemouth bass hang shallow all day if they have some type of crock ledge, brush or cover to get in. Especially if they are trying to eat bluegill which can also be shallow all day. The smallmouth and spotted bass usually like the cooler non sun water. The walleye are rarely shallow this time of the year due to the water temperature. They need cooler water to survive in. Most of the reports I have gotten are that they are in the 35 to 40 foot range. I haven't seen many crappie and I usually don't this time of year or white bass. The trout fishing on the white river is great as always and never changes. Check below for the updated patterns. Until next time!

July 9th 2014
Hello everybody! Summer is here for sure. The fish have moved into there summer patterns mostly. The lake is dropping slowly but there is still plenty of brush around the shoreline. Top water is great in the morning and late in the day. During the midday hours you have to go deeper for the fish. I have had reports on bass being anywhere from 15 feet to 35 feet. I think it depends on where the bait fish are at. The water is fairly clear and the lake surface temp is in the low to mid 80's. The thermocline is down to the 30 feet level or so.
This has been one of the best walleye runs we have seen in a while. The walleye fishing wasn't that great in March-April-May this year but June has been great. The picture page says it all. The patterns below haven't changed much. Just the depth of the fish due to the water temp. The spear fisherman are reporting see lots of fish hanging around the thermocline.
As always- Till next time!

Hello everybody! Not much of a fishing report change yet. We really haven't seen the hot temps yet so not much is changing as far as fishing patterns go. The water temperature is warming up and is on the low 80's around the lake on the surface. Divers are reporting a thermocline in the 20 to 25 foot area. The lake is around the 661 level which is a little low if you accept the new power pool level of 662. There is lots of brush around the shore line with the higher water. Not much change in the fishing patterns yet.

      Night fishing for bass has been great. Reports are on the usual night baits- plastics, jigs, and spinner baits. Top water before dark then deeper after that.

      Spear fishing season is now open. Most of the reports I am getting is that it is slow. They are not finding many catfish yet, so either they have spawned and left or they haven't spawned yet. I have not been yet so I cant really tell yet. I would think with the late spring that they haven't spawned yet. We usually see a few big ones taken by now. They are also reporting that the Walleye are scattered so they aren't getting many of them either.

     Not much else to report right now. Until next time!!

Bass-  With the thermocline forming, the bass will be moving more. Early in the day and late in the day you might try some top water baits. If you cant catch any during the day you might try to fish deeper around the thermocline
--------- plastic baits in 5 to 25 feet of water. Mostly carolina rigged lizards, brush hogs, French fry worms, and 4-7 inch plastic worms. Carolina rigging is the most popular for this. Some of you don't know what this is so I will try to paint you a visual picture. First, take and cut a piece of line 2-6 feet long. You can experiment with this. Set that aside. Then take a slip sinker that has a hole in it and slide it up the line coming from your rod, the weight of this can be anywhere from 16th oz all the way up to 3/4 oz. You can experiment with this too. It depends on the weight of line, type of rod, ect. The light the line and rod the lighter the weight. The heavier the line and rod the heavier the weight. After you have put the sinker on the line, then time a small swivel or snap on the end of the line. This works as a stopper for the sinker. Then tie the other piece of line to the other end of the swivel or snap. then tie a hook on the remaining end. The size of hook depends on the type of plastic lure, line weight and what you are trying to accomplish. Again you might have to experiment to see what works for you. Do not put any weight on the hook/bait end. Put you choice of bait on the hook. Sooooo. Now you have plastic bait that will float off the bottom, 2-6 feet a head of that will be the sinker that will be laying on the bottom while the bait floats off the bottom 2-6 feet back. Get the picture? This is a very effective fishing pattern due to the bait floating off the bottom and looks like it is swimming. The greens like watermelon, pumpkin seed, browns, blacks and other natural colors seem to work the best.
--------- Plastic tubes, Jig-n-trailer, swim baits are also working very well. These are designed to be fished with a weight on them like a jig head and crawled across the bottom like a crawfish. The natural colors again seem to be working the best. 5 to 25 feet of water seem to be the best right now.
------Stick baits like a rogue, rebel, x-rap, mega-bass or something that simulates a dying shad.
--------- Top water baits are starting work early in the morning and on cloudy days. Mostly minnow looking flukes but the other top water baits should start soon.
---------spinner baits in 0 to 10 feet of water back in the creeks on channel swings.
--- Live minnows on a small split shot in 5 to 15 foot of water

--- split shot a night crawler in 15 to 25 feet of water.

Crappie- when I can get a crappie fisherman to show off their crappie or talk about them this is what they are saying. I know there is some being caught. Most of the brush piles are 20 to 35 feet right now.
--- 1/32 oz or 1/64 oz jigs around the brush piles
--- small minnows when you can get them
--- small spoons around the brush piles.
White Bass - the whites are being caught. Go back in the creeks as far as you can go. Try 0 to 15 feet until you find them. There are reports of surfacing white bass schools around the lake during the day.
--- white jigs, rooster tails, spoons, road runner jigs, rapalas and or anything that looks like a minnow

Walleye - we are starting to see more walleye now. Most of them are being caught during the day. Some night fishing is still going on .

--------- Split shot a night crawler is working in 15 to 20feet of water

--------- bottom bouncing with harness and night crawler is producing fish in 20-25 feet of water.

--------- spooning in 20 -25 feet of water is producing some walleye

-------- ripping a stick bait at the last hour of the day is producing some fish.

Hello everybody!  The lake is around the 661 level right now. The water temperature is in the mid 70's on the surface. There is a thermocline forming around the 12 foot level with another one around the 22 foot level. These will change over the next few weeks depending on the air temps and lake levels. The walleye fishing has really taken off now. It has started so late. What a goofy year but that's fishing. Lots of walleye are being caught on a night crawler in 15 to 20 feet. There is a brush line around the lake with the lake being up a little and it extends down to the 10-12 foot level in most places. The walleye are hanging below this brush line. There are bass in the brush shallow and also below the brush line. Check the patterns below.
     Now for a classic fish story.  A family had rented one of our 50' houseboats for a few days last week for a family/fishing vacation. The 10 year old boy was fishing off the back of the houseboat. He had caught some very small bluegill and was using one of these for bait. BAM!! he caught a 33 inch - 10 lb walleye!!  There is a picture on the fish picture page. Ya just never know.
     As long as we are talking about kids fishing I wanted to give some of you ideas about taking the kids-wife-girlfriend fishing and something to try. Fisherman know that there is a lot of time spent fishing and not catching. This can be a problem with some people that need action. If you are in this position or know of somebody that is try this-- Bubble and fly fishing. Get an ultra light./light action rod preferably but any rod will work. You want to try to use a spin cast reel or close faced reel if possible. You want to use 4lb test at the most or 6lb. I would suggest getting a very small spool of 2 lb line also. You then need a clear oblong bubble bobber, some small snaps or swivels, and a couple of flies like you would use on a fly rod. The bubbles have  a peg that runs through the middle the body and the peg has a hole all the way through it from one end to another. First, thread your line from your rod through the bubble. Then tie your snap or swivel behind it to your rod. Then take a 2-4 foot piece of the 2 lb test and tie to the other end of the snap and put a fly on the other end. You can then pull the peg out of the bubble and fill it with a little water for weight. When you cast it the weight of the bubble will make it easy to cast. The bubble is also a bobber. The fly is 2-4 feet back of the bubble and will sink down a little. All you have to do is very slowly reel the bubble back in and watch it like a bobber. When it moves there is a bite. This is a very easy and productive way to have action all the time. You will usually only catch blue gills and pan fish but there is a lot of action. This will  hook the person on fishing because there is a lot of action. I have also used this on the White river for trout and on the creeks for pan fish and small bass. We sell the bubbles here and I can post a picture of one if needed. Please see the patterns below. They haven't changed much this week.

Hello everybody! As you can see we have a new website and picture page. Hope all of you enjoy it. This report page is still a work in progress so I will be adding things to it as I get time. The fishing and catching has been great. We are now moving into early summer patterns. The water temperature is hovering around 70 degrees or so on the surface. Kind of a strange year. There is a thermocline around the 22-24 foot level. It is usually not that deep for another month. The lake has been rising slowly so this might be the reason. I need to update everybody on this lake level thing. The NEW power pool level is 662 for this time of the year. It use to be 657. So it is 5 feet higher then it use to be. The lake is hovering around 662 level which is the new power pool level. So, this is where the lake is suppose to be at. There are subtle differences around the lake. There is more brush around the shoreline. Some of the normal spots that hold fish are deeper and may have changed. All the brush piles are 5 feet deeper. We have lost some of our parking and one of our launching ramps is under water. But overall I think it is a good change for minimum flow for the White River. The fishing patterns have changed some. Please read below for each species.

 

May 9th 2014
Hello everybody! The fishing and catching have continued to improve with the water temperature rising. Click HERE for a current water temperature report from the local walleye club. It is a few days old and the water temps have risen to the mid to upper 60's around the lake according to the reports I have been getting. The bass fishing is very very good according to most of the reports. The biggest complaint is catching too many small fish or non- keepers. But this means there are plenty of future fish for the lake. The smaller fish are like growing kids. They eat more and more often so it makes since to catch more of them. Plus they aren't as educated on lures and such like bigger older fish. As a rule fish don't get big by being stupid so you will catch a lot of smaller fish.
I went fishing the other night around 7 pm to midnight with my one of my fishing buddies. We caught 6 bass, 3 walleye and 1 white bass. All of them were caught on stick baits (rogues-rebels-xraps-ect) before dark. They were anywhere from shoreline out to 15 feet of water. We tried trolling after dark but didn't do any good yet. It was nice to catch some walleye on a stick bait. There has been some reports of this happening. I have also had reports of walleye being caught during the day on swim baits in 30 to 35 feet of water off the points. I haven't tried this myself yet.
 I wanted to comment on a few of the emails I have been getting concerning not having as many fish pictures as I usually have. There has been a growing trend to "catch and release" fish now. I agree with this trend. So, there aren't as many pictures taken as usual. You probably have noticed there a several pictures now taken out in the lake with the fish being held. This is because these fish are being released after the picture. The same holds true on the White River for the German Brown Trout Pictures. Almost 100% of these are getting released back into the river. This is great for the fisheries on both bodies of water but not so good for advertising and looking at all the fish being caught. Anyway, I thought I would update everybody on this.
 I have updated some of the patterns below as things are changing with the water temperature rising. We are seeing lots of bass, white bass and walleye. Not seeing many crappie but I know "crappie fisherman" don't talk much about catching crappie or they don't like to show them off. Until next time!!
Bass-
--- plastic baits in 5 to 15 feet of water. Mostly carolina rigged lizards, brush hogs, French fry worms, and 4-7 inch plastic worms. Carolina rigging is the most popular for this.

White Bass - the whites are being caught. Go back in the creeks as far as you can go. Try 0 to 15 feet until you find them. There are reports of surfacing white bass schools around the lake during the day.
--- white jigs, rooster tails, spoons, road runner jigs, rapalas and or anything that looks like a minnow
Walleye - the walleye seem to be done spawning and are scattered in different depths. There are reports of them being caught during the day in 25 to 25 feet of water off the points on plastics on the bottom. There is also some being caught on rippin stick baits late in the day. I would also think working a spoon on he points during the day would work. Bottom bouncing should start any day or flat trolling.
 

May 2nd 2014
Hello everybody! Not a lot of changes yet in the conditions and fishing patterns. We are still having colder then normal weather. The water temp is still hovering around the 59-61 range on the surface. It is suppose to get up in the 80's tomorrow so that should bring up the temp some. You can read the last April report above and the patterns above and its the same for now. Hopefully the weather will change a little and water temps increase. We had a couple of tournaments last weekend and it took 15 to 16 lbs in 5 fish to win both of them. There was plenty of fish caught in both of them. The biggest complaint was too many small fish. Plenty of non keepers out there which is good for the future. Anyway- until next time.
 

 

 

April 21st 2014
Hello everybody! Spring fishing is here. The bass are starting to make their beds around the cove here at the marina. The water visibility is reaching it's peak. You can see at least 30 feet to the bottom around the docks. If you want to scuba dive with great visibility then now is the time. The lake is around the 660 level now which is about normal since they changed the pool level to 659. Water temperature is in the 50's to low 60's around the lake depending on where you take it. We are seeing lots of good stringers and fish taken. I am not getting as many pictures as I use to do to the fact that people are releasing a lot of fish instead of cleaning them. Therefore there wont be as many full stringer pictures as in the past. A lot of people are taking pics out on the lake and then releasing the fish. I would appreciate any pictures you take being sent to me at boatdock@bullshoals.net. I can post them on our picture page.

We are seeing lots of bass and white bass being caught. I know the crappie are biting but I cant get anybody to talk about it much which is normal for crappie fisherman. You guys and gals don't want anybody catching your crappie :) We are seeing a few walleye caught here and there but I still believe they are in the end of spawn mode. You can go along the bank at night and spot light all kinds of smaller walleye cruising the bank but you cant get them to bite anything yet. It should take off fairly soon. Yes it is late but so is everything else. The patterns listed above are working and are the same as always in the spring. Not much change yet. Until next Time !!


April 16th 2014
Hello everybody! Fishing on the lake has taken off over this past weekend. I have posted several pictures on our picture page. Big walleye, couple of 50 total pound white bass stringers, and largemouth- smallmouth pics. Also posted a several of white river brown trout pics. The lake water temp is in the low 50's to almost 60 in most places on the surface. We are having a cold front right now and its suppose to be below freezing in the morning so we will see what the next few days brings. I assume fishing will continue to improve with the warmer weather. Not much change in the fishing patterns. Will post again in a few days. Until next time!


April 9th 2014
Hello everybody! Well, it looks like the catching is going to start. The fishing is always good. :) The water temperature is finally in the 50's on the surface. The bass are starting to stage towards the back of the creeks where the water is warmer. Haven't seen any beds yet but most of the fish have moved up shallower. I talked to several fisherman on the dock today. Most of them had smiles on their faces and fish in their live wells. The lake is normal level and the visibility is getting better every day. It is that time of the year. They are catching all species of bass, white bass and crappie. I am told by the night time fisherman that they are spotlighting and seeing lots of walleye on the bank at night but cant catch any yet. I have seen a few come in but not the numbers yet. Like everything else this year the walleye spawn is late. The patterns below are update as of April 1st. The white river continues to be fantastic. See the picture page for pics. Until next time!

Bass-

--- plastic baits in 5 to 15 feet of water. Mostly carolina rigged lizards, brush hogs and other plastics

--- Stick baits like a rogue, rebel, x-rap, mega-bass or something that simulates a dying shad. The water temperature is cold enough for the shad to die. They are catching them on the surface to 10 feet. Fairly shallow.

--- jigs - Try to simulate a crawfish in 5 to 15 feet of water. Use a standard jig with some kind of plastic attached. darker colors seem to be the best.

--- spinner baits in 0 to
10 feet of water back in the creeks on channel swings.
--- tube jigs along the bottom simulating a crawfish.

--- Live minnows on a small split shot in 5 to 15 foot of water

Crappie- when I can get a crappie fisherman to show off their crappie or talk about them this is what they are saying. I know there is some being caught. Most of the brush piles are 20 to 35 feet right now.

--- 1/32 oz or 1/64 oz jigs around the brush piles

--- small minnows when you can get them

--- small spoons around the brush piles.

White Bass - the whites are being caught. I haven't been able to talk anybody into taking a picture yet. One of the guides caught 30-40 today but they released them all. Go back in the creeks as far as you can go. Try 0 to 15 feet until you find them

--- white jigs, rooster tails, spoons, road runner jigs, rapalas and or anything that looks like a minnow

Walleye - there are several walleye being seen shallow at night after dark with spot lights. But, nobody is talking about catching them or showing them off yet. I have seen one or two here and there during the day. I think the catching should start any time. I believe they are spawning and not interested in eating anything right now. We will see of the next few days if it changes.

 

 

April 4th 2014
Hello everybody! We got a nice warm rain yesterday. That should help the water temp rise some. Not many changes on the fishing patterns yet. The water temp is still in the upper 40's on  the surface around the lake. We are starting to see 50 degree and above back in the creeks as far as you can go. There is all species of bass, white bass, and crappie being caught. Haven't seen but just a few walleye yet. Will keep you posted. Until next time!
