This month is typically tough fishing on Wilson and Pickwick Lakes. As the water begins to warm and fish recover from spawning the bite can be tough. Best bets are bluegills around the full moon on June 15th. They will be coming in for the second spawn of the season. Fish the same areas you did in May just back out a little deeper. June spawning may be deep as 7-10 feet if the water is clear.
The tailrace may load up with white bass if we get enough rainfall to generate good current flow. This is always dependent upon river flow. Early morning and late evening action is always best.
If the first two don’t produce, you can always pursue Mr. Whisker’s. The catfish bite may be slower as well but a few can always be caught. Fish early, late, or at night. Target rocks and gravel bars where mussels and moss are present. Catfish love to feed on fresh growing moss beds in the heat of summer.
Brian Barton Outdoors will resume fishing excursions September 1oth, I still have a few fall dates open for live bait at this time.
