Capt. Sam Williams Lake Eufaula Fishing Report - Sept 18, 2019
Water level 188.34 msl
Water clarity Clear
Water temperature Upper 80's
The hot weather seems like it is going to hold on ‘till Thanksgiving. Conditions are still tough but the fish are catchable if you have the patience to work them and can stand the heat. The shallow bass on the grass lines and the open bays close to the grass are producing fish on the pink trick worm and a shallow running crank bait in a shad color. Frogs are getting a little action real early and late in the afternoon. Chatter baits are also working in these areas along with a spinner bait. The deeper fish are hitting a very slow moving Carolina rigged worm and a heavy jig with a big creature bait for a trailer.
Crappie are deep on the man made trash piles. Jig’s tipped with minnows worked over the trash is the presentation . Some crappie are being taken back up in the creeks around fallen trees.
Fishermen are showing up on the flats fishing for the bream. Worms and crickets are the bait of choice there. If the wind is down, you can smell the beds and anchor just off of them and cast the bait on the bed.
Catfish on jugs baited with cut bait and artificial packaged bait will get you a mess for the table.
Please be safe in this heat, be sure and drink plenty of water and use plenty of sun screen. Take a look at our foundation web site, www.alabamachildrensclassic.org for opportunities to support our causes and g
God Bless & Good Fishn',
