Fishing Report as of 12/01/2018
Lake level is 705.87 and water temp 45 in the Osage and Grand. The current water clarity is stained in the Osage, but fairly clear everywhere else.
With the cold weather moving in, the late fall pattern of scattered crappie is going on and the movement to winter area is well underway here in the mid part of the lake. Swarmjigs of various colors are taking lots of limits. The lower part of the lake is finding crappie about 16-26 ft just off the bottom. The bite has been more noticeable as the crappie are full of shad and are still feeding up for winter. We have used various colors of Sawrmjigs and different color 1/4oz jig heads and doesn’t seem to make much difference. DEPTH is key. Look on the drop edges of the creeks and the bare bank bluffs in 16-27 feet of water fishing about 6 inches to a foot off the bottom to start….move slowly….
That’s it for December 1, 2018 fishing report… Help the other guy when you can. I hope that all of you remember your life jacket works better when it is worn.
