Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : BARTLETT LAKE: Largemouth bass are present in all sizes and fishing has been good. As the weather warms, shift to working plastics in deeper water using Texas rigs, Carolina rigs and dropshot. When in doubt throw a live worm on the bottom and see what bites! When focusing on largemouth bass, fish near shady areas with overhangs or drop-offs. When water temperatures rise, look for jumping shad and toss your line in. It has also been a good time for crappie. Try fishing around submerged trees or on shelves. Try using live minnows or jigs tipped with minnows. Flathead catfish are present throughout the lake but are more common upriver or by the dam. Look for spots where the water is murkier with vegetation or rocky covering nearby. Try using catfish baits like chicken livers for smaller catfish. To catch a trophy size try using live sunfish or carp.
