The water temperature is starting to cool, with the average being 70-74 degrees. The dam area has been buoyed off due to current that is created when releasing water. Glory Hole Point boat launch is a one lane dirt and gravel road leading off of the end of the point. There is not a courtesy dock and it is best to launch with a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Trout bite is slow. The lake has had very little boating traffic and fishing pressure. Bass bite is Good. The fall bass bite is getting a little better each week. The shorter days and cool nights will continue to cool the water temperature. This will cause the shad to school up and the bass will feed heavily on them. Use your electronics to find the bait and the fish will be nearby. There are many ways to target fish that are schooled up and feeding on shad. Catfish bite is good. There are still a few anglers each week that are targeting catfish. Most bank anglers have been finding their best luck to be off of Glory Hole Point on down by the 49-bridge. One nice thing about the cooler weather is the catfish will be more active during the middle of the day. Try to fish flat areas that have deep water nearby. The catfish will use these areas as a dinner table and will check them throughout the day. Glory Hole Sports (209) 736-4333
