Lake Eufaula - Freshwater Fishing Report
Water Level 188.01 msl
Water Temperature upper 50's to lower 60's
Water clarity slight stain
The recent rains have been a blessing and the river in on the rise. The long drought and lower water level have allowed a great amount of grass and vegetation to grow on the on the shorelines. With the rising water, these bait fields are now under water and are in shallow enough areas the morning sun will warm these areas and the bait will be active.
Bass are still hitting top water early. On the South end a spoon jigged in deep cover is getting a good bite. Schooling fish are doing well in lip-less cranks and diving minnows.
Crappie are coming up some, there are a lot of boats trolling the top of the ledges and getting some good slabs.
Cat fish are really liking the cooler water and the jug fishermen are loading up.
Be very safe while on the river. The winds get up quick and can make it very dangerous.
Please visit www.alabamachildrensclassic.org and see the opportunities you have to help the kid's at the hospital. We now have a power pole, a Gator Hunt in South Florida and now a Farmers edition Henry Repeating Rifle to sell tickets for.
Enjoy God's great outdoors and have a Merry Christmas.
God Bless & Good Fishn'
