Lake Burton Fishing Report

The Brown Trout bite has been a little slow lately. Hopefully with more consistent weather and water temperatures the bite will pick up. Look for these fish to feed early in the mornings. Try trolling over long points near the main river channel in 30 to 40 foot of water. We normally set our baits in the 20 to 25 ft depths. We have tried deeper over the years with not much success. Look for these fish to start feeding mid afternoon as we head towards August.
The bass bite has been consistent lately with most of the fish holding on a 25 to 35 foot bottom in and around brush. Drop-shotting seems to be the best technique. Try locating this fish on a fish finder. Lock the trolling motor down on the boat and fish directly over them. we have caught some really nice spotted bass and largemouth using this technique the last few days. We should see a mid-morning mid-afternoon topwater bite in the next few weeks. The lake seems to have plenty of Herring this year. These fish are moving up and down the lake chasing the bait fish. Look for these fish to continue to feed on this pattern over the next few weeks.
Yellow Perch
July is the month to catch a mess of Yellow Perch. These fish are staging in the grass midway back in the creeks. Finding them sometimes can be a little tough. Fishing in and near the grass seems to be the ticket. We have been catching most of our Perch on a 18ft to 25 ft bottom using small crappie jigs. Look for this bite to continue over the next several weeks.

Good Luck!
