The fish are changing to a Fall Pattern

Lake Norfork - Freshwater Fishing Report

The lake level is 544.2 and the water temp is in the low to mid 60's. The lake is down almost 8ft. The night bite should get going with the water starting to cool down. We caught a few small stripers this week at night on rouges. The bigger fish will start moving to the flats feeding at night. If you throw a rouge or any other stickbait remember to reel it SLOW. Bass are chasing baitfish to the surface early. Throw a topwater bait like a zara spook or pop-r. Throw a curlytail or a stingray grub and if you don't get a hit when it's falling then when you hit bottom swim it or give it short hops along the bottom or drag it slow. We caught a few nice smallies with this technique. If you mark deeper fish on your depthfinder (25-40ft) drop a jiiging spoon or a dropshot.
