March 21st Main Lake Water Temp. 51 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3782.01 and the storage is 171,000 acre feet. The Main Lake is clear.
There were more folks on the water this week and fishing improved.
Walleye-We saw several limits come in this week. They are still at 20 to 25 feet but are more aggresive. Several approaches are working, pulling Bottom Bouncers with spinners and Live Minnows, working a jig with either a Live Minnow or a Curly Tail Grub, and casting a Suspending Jerk Bait late in the day all produced well this week.
White Bass-They finally turned on trolling with Crank Baits that run 8 to 12 feet. The Upper Canadian was the best area this weekend.
Bass-They are really waking up. The warm weather appears to have them staging near spawning areas. We have had good reports of Smallmouth being caught on various Soft Plastics worked in 8 to 12 feet of water. The larger Blacks and Smallies are starting to show up shallower, especially later in the day.
Hereford Bass Club is hosting an open tournament this Sunday, March 26th. Sign up will be at the Marina parking lot before safe light Sunday morning. For more information contact Dan Brooks-806-344-6823.
Catfish-They are active in both the Upper Canadian and Upper Ute. They are hitting Punch Bait in about 5 feet of water.
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES AND GOOD FISHING!
