Good bass fishing on Mark Twain Lake

Wed, July 05, 2017

Here is the latest Mark Twain Lake fishing report.

Lake level is 615. Water is mostly pretty clear for this lake but there are definitely some mud lines still out there. Water temp is mid 80’s.

CRAPPIE: They are almost to their summer pattern now so you will likely find them suspended over deep water but hanging at about 10-15 feet deep. Trolling plugs is a pretty good option but so is a slip bobber set at about 12 feet with a minnow. Colors will depend on the water clarity and whether it is sunny or overcast. Bluffs, deep tree’s or brushpiles or bridge piers are good starting points.

BASS: We have heard nothing but good on the largemouth bass fishing on main lake points. We are finally starting to hear about good white bass catches as well. Main lake humps, islands, and bridge piers are good places to try. Naturally the evening bite is the most consistent. Shiny plugs or jigs or spoons are the way to go for these.

CATFISH: Blues and flatheads are pretty tough right now as they are mostly on their nests. The blues should be starting to come off any time now. People are catching a few but not great numbers right now.
