~ FISHING REPORT ~
Broken Bow Lake is currently 10 feet below normal with the water temps ranging in the mid to upper 50 degree range.
Late fall fishing is really beginning to heat up as shown in the pics! With the lake being extremely low for this time of year, it has the fish moving around quite a bit.
Conditions of the day determine how you should approach looking for fall bass. These conditions will determine if you should try and fish deeper or shallower for the day.
With lake levels low, there are a couple ways to target fall bass.
First, try finesse fishing deep bluff walls with the combination of rock and timber. Both spotted bass and largemouth bass can be found on this type of structure. Good baits to try are drop shot finesse worms, shakey head with a finesse worm or trick worm, and if the conditions present themselves, slow-rolling a spinnerbait in either a 1/2 or 3/4 ounce will produce results.
Secondly, as we get deeper into the fall bite, both bass and white bass will begin to school up feeding on shad. Use of electronics can find these schools. Depths can range from 30-60 feet. Bass will be closer to the 30 foot range with the white bass being out around the 40-60 ft. range. Baits for bass would be a drop shot rigged with a small finesse worm on a 3/8 or 1/2 ounce weight. Also, a 3/4 to 1 ounce jigging spoon will provide bites on most days.
As far as white bass are concerned bait wise, the same jigging spoon will catch them when you find them.
