Conditions : Lake Norfork: Tom Reynolds of STR Outfitters said Norfork Lake is at normal pool for the summer. The water temperature is in the high-70s. The water visibility is stained. We have seen rain each day with lots of cloud cover. The stripers and hybrids continue to be found suspended in the river channels, off the main lake and secondary points. They are feeding on 1-inch long baby shad and crawdads in 35 to 50 feet of water. Live bait is the most effective method to catch a striper, but stripers are now being caught trolling umbrella and Alabama rigs. Spoons also have produced a few stripers. I caught stripers near the dam, the Brushy Creek area, and the Robinson Point flat. The method was free lines 50 to 70 feet deep between the boat and down lines, 2 oz sinker, with 6’ leader counted down to depth of the stripers. Now is the time to get out on the lake. The stripers are moving out of the creeks and setting up for their summer feed fest. The walleye have moved to their summer pattern and can be caught trolling crankbaits, nightcrawlers on worm harnesses, and spoons. The walleye are staying between 25 and 30 feet of water on the flats and rounded points. Look at East Pigeon, Panther area, Hand Cove, and the flats leading into Float Creek.
