Lake life

Fishing remains about the same

Fishermen are still lining the channels on the big lake on D’Arbonne and near the Ruston Hwy. Bridge. The lake has started a very slow fall again and fishing reports on white perch vary from zero to nearly a limit. About 50 boats were visible in those two areas mid-morning yesterday.

It appears the fish are still suspended in deep water about 12-15 feet from the surface.  They are still running a bit small for the most part, but the

key is finding them and staying right on top of them as they move along the channels with the baitfish. A lot of the fishermen are also using more than one pole trying to keep as many baits in the water as possible when they do get right on the fish.

Unseasonably warm weather and water temps are  keeping the fish scattered, but if you are patient, you can catch a good mess.  Again this week, baits don’t seem as important as location. Shad colored jigs and plastic baits are working as well as live shiners.

Bass fishing reports are scattered. The fish appear to be biting best along the channels up D’Arbonne and Corney. Shad-colored crankbaits and white/chartreuse spinnerbaits are the best bet. The fish are pretty aggressive.

***  CAUTION **** The lake is at a dangerous level. Stay in the deeper water and motor slowly. New hazards are appearing every day.
