Fishing Report for May 3, 2023
FORT GIBSON: April 29. Elevation is normal and stable, water temperature 66°F and stained. (USACE Lake Level) Crappie good on jigs, minnows, and tube jigs below the dam, brush structure, creek channels, rocks, and shorelines. White bass fair on crankbaits, minnows, and plastic baits below the dam, creek channels, and river mouth. Largemouth bass good on crankbaits, jerk baits, jigs, lipless baits, plastic baits, and spinnerbaits around coves, points, and shorelines. Comments: Finally getting a White Bass run in the creeks after some extra flow from the rain. White bass, crappie, and hybrids are still being caught during generation below the dam. Crappie are also being caught in about 4-6 feet of water near the shorelines. Black Bass isn’t as good as a couple of weeks ago, they seem to be preferring more finesse presentations right now. Catfish picking up below the dam but are still doing well in coves and points in the main lake. Paddlefish are slow with low flows.
