Lake Burton Fishing Report

Water temp 61
Clarity clear
Level: full pool

The Walleye have started feeding better over the last couple of days. We are now catching fish with some size to them. Most of the fish seem to be congregated on long points that have good access to deeper water. I am starting off the day trolling small crank baits up shall low on the 6 to 14 ft water depths. Clipping long points and brushy bank lines have been producing the better fish. We have been occasionally casting a blue back Herring or Jerk Bait in the grass along the edges of coves this has been working well. This pattern should continue over the next few weeks. We will slowly begin moving out over deeper water over the next few weeks as the water temperature rises. Walleye are very structure oriented fish. Always keep this in mind. These fish can be caught during daylight hours so be patient when fishing for them. Sometimes they are often found close to Spotted Bass but the bass are so aggressive that the angler often leaves a good location to go in search for the honey hole.
Brown Trout:
The smaller trout seem to be pilled up in the creek channels. A small Rapala Countdown or spinner ( silver) has been working well. We caught two nice Brook trout this week on Lake Burton. These fish are absolutely beautiful! Most of the bigger Brown Trout are close to the main lake channel. These fish are feed on the schools of Blue Backs that are moving around the lake. Look for the bait and the Brown’s are not far behind. Casting a small spoon towards these bait fish will certainly produce some big Brown Trout.
The Large mouth have finished spawning and are finally feeding again. We caught some huge fish this week with the average size being 5 to 6 lbs. Most of the Large mouth are feeding up shallow early in the backs of the creeks along brush and trees. White crank baits are working well. After 9 am or so move toward the 14 to 16 ft range and work a Sinko or Ned Rig on the bottom. This is where most of the bigger females are.
Yellow Perch:
Get ready. We have been catching some monster Yellow Perch the last two weeks while Bass and Walleye fishing. The perch will start congregating in the grass flats near Creek channels soon.
Good luck!
