Does anyone have a recent report from Fayette County they are willing to share? Headed up there for 3-4 days next week. I d appreciate any advance scouting that you might share. Iíve fished there many times but havenít been on that lake in about 12 months. Thanks.

I went yesterday, but not sure if that counts since it was pure survival fishing. Lol. Wow it looked like the Gulf of Mexico. Wind blew so hard, it somehow curved around points. Iíve caught some recently flipping reeds. Not everyone enjoys that and you wonít catch 100 but they do have fish in them. Yesterday I caught a few fish in 2-5í of water in or around timber. I saw a boat catch a few near the edge of reeds. We were both using plastics. Like I said, not a lot to say but it was a kind of day you pick a spot and make the most of it.

If you havenít been there in a while and if you arenít a deep water depth finder reading guy, Iíd find a creek and follow it back and fish plastics in whatever way you like just outside the creek until you start to put together a plan.

Thanks for the report. That little lake can get pretty mean when the wind blows hard. I do like to fish offshore. I was curious if they were schooled up in the usual spots yet?

Last few times for me the fish have been scattered and had to resort to fishing the shoreline due to wind. I hope the wind cooperates for you as I like to fish offshore as well. My best fish came off the dam on livingston cranks in 10-15 fow. Shad were spawning end of March but haven't been since then.

Shad spawn should be happening in the morning, fish shallow near reeds, traps, small swim baits spinners chatter baits in white. Crank and Flip the timber for bites, usually 5 - 8 ft depths. The rock bite should be turning back on 10-15 ft. Top water works early too, bone colored walking baits, and pop r style baits.

25 fish a day should be an average day on the lake.

Thanks Bryan. That is the pattern I typically follow this time of year. When you say "rock bite" do you mean the dam or the not so secret rock piles? What color cranks are producing - or does color really matter? I usually throw shad patterns on that lake but I've seen others catch fish with various bright colors. Also - typical clarity with that stained green water?

All rock, there are no secrets on Fayette. I'm not sure color matters, but yes water color determines that. I would have a shad pattern and a chartreuse type color with an orange belly. All colors work on this lake, but finding the color that produces more bites. U'll catch fish on solid black, but will u catch at least 25 fish a day? Who knows.
