Fishing Report – September 25, 2014
As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 655.54 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 659 msl).
Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock said the water is cooling into the 70s and fishing has started to change for the better. The thermocline is around the 30- to 35-foot level, depending on location. Anglers are catching many bass moving shallow, especially on cloudy or windy days with spinnerbaits. There have also been reports of soft-plastic shad baits working from the bank to 15 feet deep. There are many groups of shad working the surface late in the day. The crappie and walleye haven’t started moving shallower yet, but it should happen soon with the air and water temperatures falling.
