Yellow Smoke Park Lake Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

Water clarity is excellent even after the rains this week. Bluegill - Fair: Yellow Smoke has very large bluegills in the 8.5 to 9.5 inch range. Because the water is so clear, try using really light line and small lures. Fish deep around submerged trees. Largemouth Bass - Excellent: A lot of largemouth bass are being caught, but most are sub-legal fish. There are a lot of bass around 14 inches in length that make for great catch and release fishing.

Water clarity is excellent. Anglers are catching a few crappie and big bluegills, but you really have to work at it. Remember to clean vegetation off boat trailers when leaving Yellow Smoke because the invasive plant brittle naiad is present.

Water clarity is excellent. Remember to clean vegetation off boat trailers when leaving Yellow Smoke because the invasive plant brittle naiad is present there. Bluegill - Slow: Yellow Smoke has very large bluegill in the 8.5 to 9.5-inch size range. Because the water is so clear, try using really light line and small lures. Fish deep around submerged trees. Also, try drifting the open water 5 to 10 feet down. Try small black jigs tipped with a wax worm, a piece of night crawler or a piece of crawdad tail. Anglers that typically fish Yellow Smoke report that they can catch big bluegill, but don't expect to catch more than seven or eight per trip. Largemouth Bass - Fair: A fair number of largemouth bass are being caught, but most are sub-legal fish. There are a lot of bass around 14 inches in length that make for great catch and release fishing.

Yellow Smoke has about 7 inches of good, clear ice. The water is extremely clear. Bluegill - Fair: The action is not real fast, but when anglers catch a bluegill they are jumbo sized. Use very light line and tackle.

Yellow Smoke has about 7 inches of good, clear ice. Use caution when near the handicapped accessible dock because slush pockets have formed near it. The water is extremely clear. Bluegill - Good: The few anglers that are fishing are doing well for bluegill. The bite turns on at 4:30 p.m. Bluegills as large as 10 1/8 inches are being caught. Try fishing in 20 feet of water in the submerged trees. Use very light line and tackle. Largemouth Bass - Fair: A number of 15 to 16-inch bass are being caught while bluegill fishing.
