It is quiet around here lately. I haven't been in a couple of years and wondering if anybody has been recently. I am thinking about going in 2-3 weeks, but don't remember so few reports or conversation. It is either great or too slow to fight the heat.

Fayette is in turnover right now. Lots of dead fish all over the lake. Yesterday, the water temps were 89º to 101º.

Give it another month and it should be pretty good. I'm planning an early November trip myself.

OK...Here is a report on FCL. I normally only post in the Bluegill section but will make an exception for Rayzor. I fish FCL once a week for both Sunfish & bass. This time of year I split it up 50/50. Right now the bass bite is SLOW. Last week I started at daybreak &didn't get a single hit until 2 pm. Just happened to get on some feeding fish at that time and ended up with 22. You can catch all the Sunfish you want if you know what you are doing, but that bite will end by the 3rd week of October. I fish for bass on the deep-water humps & points and also target the rocks. As wabash said it should start picking up in November as the water starts to cool. If you want to see my week by week reports on this lake, please visit the Bluegill section if the forum...

I meant a report for any lake. I haven't fished freshwater in a while. Thanks!

This guy knows all about Fayette. He has had one heck of a year. Bass, Bluegill, and more. Keep up the great fishing Steve!


Side Note: You can read his main post in the Bluegill/Sunfish Forum. thumb

I murdered on Fayette all summer long. When folks were complaining the fishing was tough, I was having 50 fish half days with 25-30 lb bags. That hayride came to an end last Saturday when I was out there. In 4 hours I had 4 fish, the biggest being 4.5lbs. It tied for the worst day I've ever had out there in 200 or so trips over the last 9 years. The water had about 6 inches of visibility. I don't know if the lake was turning over or if it was an algae bloom, but the water looked horrible. Lots of dead fish. I assume that had something to do with the tough fishing, but who knows, maybe it was just a bad day.

All that said, I don't understand the physics of power plant lakes. I've heard guides say the lake can turn over multiple times in the fall. I'm not sure how that happens particularly when temps haven't really changed. So maybe algae is the culprit effecting oxygen levels. All I know for sure is my last outing was brutal.
