Fishing report for Kerr/Buggs Island Lake


Fishing report for Kerr/Buggs Island Lake

February 2012

Crappie: Fish are on two different patterns depending oin what part of the lake you are fishing, from Clarksville downstream the fish can still be caught vertical jigging with bucktails around brush and other structures on ledges and points. On the upper end of the lake in creeks such as Bluestone and Buffalo, fishermen are beginning to haul in some nice catches of fish by tightlining jigs and minnows in 5 to 12 feet of water around dropoffs and shallow flats.

Catfish: Blues have been hitting pretty good on the upper end of the lake anywhere above Clarksville, the best method for catching these fish is by anchoring on shallow flats outside of the river channel on the main lake. Fishing on the bottom using cut shad and cut crappie. You never no what to expect fishing like this the next bite you get might be a 5 pounder or it might be a big girl that goes well over 50 pounds.

Striper: Fish are in most of the major creeks feeding on shad, these fish can be caught livebaiting with shad and Jumbo minnows or by casting lures to them. Fishermen are getting good numbers it has just been hard to come by keepers.

Bass: With water tempatures in the mid 40’s to 50 fishing has been good, most fishermen are using shallow running crankbaits, rat-l-traps, jerkbaits and jigs, fish have been holding on red clay banks and rocky pointsin 1 to 8 feet of water. Reports of good numbers of fish and 5 fish bags from 14 to 19 pounds have been coming in.
