As we roll into November the overnight lows will increase the the number of fish coming into the shallows. Mornings will be your best bet for the next few weeks on the calmer days. Wind or clouds will make the bite more consistent through out the day. Due to the surface temperature dropping to 57-58 over night then up to 60 during the day, the lake is beginning to turn over. As of now it’s not thick and the fish are still moving around in it. Wind and current will shift the clumps around so you might have to drive around to find a clearing if/when it gets worse. There will always be clear areas, you just have to search for them.
In the early mornings the strip bite and the indicator bite are about 50/50. Beaches that have quicker access to deep water or steeper drops will hold a few more fish.
Stripping beetles or boobies with buggers or streamers in white, black, and olive have been the most productive. Indicator fishing with a balanced leech (again, in black, white, or olive, below a midge or nymph off the ledge has made for successful days as well.
Both techniques will continue to produce as the surface temps drop and more fish begin to come into the shallows.
Calm clear days the bite on float tubes and sinking line will help keep you into fish as they will go into deeper water during the day
We have had so many great trips in October it will be dearly missed but we are ready to see some more good fish from shore again!
November is historically a “Big Fish” month so get your calendar in order and come Rope Em’
