On June 18th 2013 the lake level on Nickajack is low and stable. The water temp is 78 degrees on the river and 82 degrees in the back water.
Crappie- The crappie fishing has slowed down for the most part with size being good and numbers not so good. The majority of the fish are coming from the mouths of feeder creeks directly on the bottom. The bait of choice seems to be a 1/8 oz jig with a tube style bait in a chartreuse and red color. The key to the bites is to let the bait fall all the way to the bottom on a very long cast and slowly wind it with short pauses in between. The fish are holding in 18-25 feet of water.
Bass- The bass fishing is ok with good numbers but size is still the issue. The better fish are coming out of 15-25 feet of water on spoons, Carolina rigged worms, jigs and swimbaits. There are a few fish being caught shallow with the grass starting to come up and the best bite is in the morning and evening on a spook over grass mats. Good luck and good fishing.
Good luck and good fishing! Submitted by: Carter Day
