Lake Burton Fishing Report

Lake Burton Fishing Report
Water Temp: 65
Clarity: Clear
Level: full pool

The bite has been decent the last few days. Most of the bass are up shallow now that the water temps have come down. They seem to be feeding longer than normal. Maybe it’s due to having a nine month summer this year hah! We have had good success with Sebille Swim Baits in the back of creeks. This bite has not been an early morning bite. Try focusing on the main lake points early in the morning and then moving into the creeks around the mid morning time. We have caught some bigger Spots and Large Mouth on Supper Spooks working the brush in the creeks. This pattern should continue for the next few weeks and hold as long as the water temps stay consistent 60’s.
The Brown Trout bite has picked up over the last week or so. These fish seem to be congregated in and around the mouths of the creeks. We have caught numbers lately but not many over 2lbs. Sight fishing for the Browns seems to be the ticket. These fish are on the move and don’t sit for very long. We have caught most of our fish casting Mepps spinners and Blue Fox spinners. This pattern should continue for the next several weeks as the adult Brown Trout head up the creeks to spawn.
Yellow Perch
The Perch bite has been great this early Fall. We have caught Perch all over Lake Burton. Most of these fish seem to be congregated in the 12 to 16ft of water around grass or brush. Trolling Rappala Shad Raps ( Crawfish Color) SR5 has been the go to bait. These fish are aggressive and will eat about any bait you have in your collection!

Good Luck!
