January 2, 2020 Lake Eufuala Bass Fishing Report
Water Level: 190
Lake Eufaula is rolling mud and has risen to over 190. However, the Corps are pulling the water so fast that you can barely stay in one spot while idling up the main river. The shallow water bite has picked up in the extremely muddy, high water. While the deep bite is almost non existent above White Oak. The best bite has been on a black/blue or white Strikezone Lures swim jig and a chart/white spinnerbait around shallow grass. The key to this bite is finding a little clearer water with bait present. Once you locate that in an area it becomes more of a timing deal. The only clear water on Lake Eufaula right now is around Sandy Branch but could muddy up because of how much water the corps is moving. If you would prefer to fish in the clear water you will need to back off the bank and fish any hard spots that you can find with a carolina rig or Jenko CD 15 crankbait. I look for the upcoming MLF event to be won by fishing a combination of hard spots and shallow grass. The quality is way better in the grass but I am getting way more bites on hard spots.
Best time I have ever had in my 25 years coming to Lake Eufaula. Ever since going with the great David Cole.
My son and I fished with Lake Eufaula Fishing Guide Clayton Batts a few weeks ago. To say we had a blast would be an understatement! Clayton went out of his way to make sure we had a good time and caught some hawgs! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their fishing skills and catch some monster bass.
