Capt. Sam Williams Lake Eufaula Fishing Report - Jan 3, 2020
Water Level 188.31 msl
Water Temp Mid 40’s
Water Clarity still muddy
The wind and rain continue to keep the river muddy. More rain is in the forecast so it won’t clear up anytime soon. With these conditions, noisy lures and red plastics are the answer to getting a strike from bass. The shad continue to work near old cover when the sun gets up. The birds are feeding on them and are always an easy way to locate the shad pods. Slow presentation is still necessary to aggravate a bass to strike. Work out an area good before moving to a new location. Deeper bass are on trash piles on the drops near where the shad are working.
Crappie are on the trash piles in deeper water. Minnows are the trick here held above the schools.
Keep an eye on the Albany Bass Club web site. The Alabama Children’s Classic Bass Tournament has taken the reins of the old Easter Seals Tournament and will handle the event as a fund raiser for the Scott Woodruff Heart Transplant project. The tournament will still be on the last Saturday of March. Applications will be online and will soon be at our local tackle stores. Boat numbers will be assigned by receipt of paid and completed entry forms. Plan to fish this great 44 year old tournament and be sure and put June 13 on your calendar for the 20th annual Alabama Children’s Classic tournament.
Be safe on the water, enjoy what God has given us to enjoy with our families. Happy New Year.
God Bless & Good Fishn',
