Capt. Sam Williams Lake Eufaula Fishing Report - 12/06/2022

Water Level - 188.09 msl

Water Temp - 68

Water Clarity - Good Stain


The water level is holding fairly steady, Lack of rain has caused the river to drop below 189.00 for a few weeks. The unseasonably warm winter has kept the water temp up for this time of year. This has kept the shallow bite active longer than usual. The bite continues to be extremely slow. It takes work to cause the bass to want to eat your offering. Texas rigs, swim jigs and slow moving chatter baits are getting a strike. Carolina rig’s worked on the first drops on the river and creek ledges are also working. Dead sticking the soft baits on the bottom has become a good choice to get a hit. The bass seem to be running at the boat with the bait, so keep a close eye on your line movement. The hardest hook set is when they are coming at you. If you reel down on them too fast, they will feel it and drop the hook. If you set up with too much slack, it will result in a wimpy hook set and they will probably jump off as you lift them into the boat. Jigging spoons in larger sizes are working where you find any deeper fish holding near cover. You may need to work on them for several minutes to get them to hit the spoon.

Soft plastic colors that have been working are black with chartreuse tail, Watermelon candy, Watermelon red and June Bug. Use a white trailer on your jigs and chatter bait. Dipping the tail in J.J’s Magic chartreuse is a good idea, the garlic odor makes a difference too.

Crappie are on the drops in trash piles eating minnows. There are a lot of night fishermen using lights under the bridges and causeways.

Pan fish are still on the shore lines in this warm water eating worms and crickets.

Catfish are always a lot of fun on jugs baited with cut bait or stir fry strips. Bottom fishing for the cats using night crawlers will draw in some big ones.

Go to www.alclassic.com and sign up for our news letter. We are planning something new and exciting for our March 18th, 2023 event It was the old Easter Seals Tournament. We will be now from now on as the “Lee King Memorial Alabama Classic Bass Tournament”. We have always held these events to raise money for Neimann-Pic Disease research to find a cure for these terminal children. We have moved the October tournament back to September 16,2023 to get ahead of hunting season on both sides of the river. Please pray for us and consider fishing these two events to support our causes. We also support Darby’s Warrior’s where we take post 9/11 combat wounded and PTSD heroes hunting and fishing to acclimate them back into civilian life.

Enjoy some great time outdoors with your family. Memories are made during these great times that will last for generations.

Pray for all our uniformed men and women and their families, as they suit up every day and risk their lives for our safety. Pray for one another also.

God Bless & Good Fishn’
