Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Norfork: Guide Steve Olomon said water temperature is in the low- to mid-80s and the lake level is up to 564. The stripers are starting to group up in 35 to 45 feet of water. As the water temp rises they will move deeper. They can be suspended anywhere over 45 to 140 feet of water. Look along deep channel swings and along the bluffs. Just get your bait or jigging spoon down to where you mark them on your depth finder. Bass are chasing bait to the surface early and just before dark. I always have a rod rigged with a topwater bait like a Zara Spook Jr. I like to throw a white or a clear one. Throw a jig or a Texas-rigged worm on the bottom in 15-25 feet of water and drag it or hop it in short hops back to the boat. Look for walleye on gravel flats in 30 to 35 feet of water. Look for the whites in coves in 25 to 40 feet of water.

Tom Reynolds of STR Outfitters said last week we had over 3 inches of rain and a lake rise of over 3 feet, but the stripers keep on biting. I fished all week except for Thursday and Friday and caught stripers on Robinson Point in the afternoons and at Woods Point. The stripers continue to bite on threadfin and gizzard shad, Alabama rigs, and trolled swim baits. The stripers are moving deeper. I now am catching all my fish between 35 and 45 feet deep. The hot weather has jumped the water temperature to the mid-80s. The crappie bite has begun and there is a good bass bite going on along most shorelines, too.
