Conditions : LAKE PLEASANT: (Lake elevation 1,693 feet, 90 % full).

Lake Pleasant was having a slow bite for a while and the water temperature was not going higher than 61 for a while which was slowing the spawning process a little bit. The good news is the stripers and shad have started to move up more shallow. Before anglers were catching them in 60-70 feet deep. Now fish are being caught in 15-40 feet of water. The bite has not exploded yet, but I figure it will improve once the water gets over 65 degrees. Fish are being caught in the northern coves using a drop shot rig with frozen anchovies.

Some anglers are having luck catching them trolling swim baits, Kastmasters, and crankbaits very slowly at 2mph in 20-30 feet of water. The night bite has been hit and miss with most anglers catching 5-15 fish a night. A few people reporting having hundreds of shad swimming around their lights in the coves at night. For anglers who don’t have access to a boat and fish from shore. They will have great results at the lake pleasant marina. They have a designated area for anglers to fish from the dock. This area can provide great opportunities since the lights and structure of the marina attract the baitfish that stripers loveReport from Barry Worman
