NEA fishing report

Monday, September 19, 2016

Lake Poinsett State Park reports that fishing has been good even with the low water levels. Crappie have been hitting great as well as the bream, bass and catfish.

At Crown Lake the bream are biting good on crickets with the bass working early in the morning and late in the day on spinnerbaits, crankbaits and topwater lures. Catfish have been taking chicken livers and shrimp. No report on the crappie fishing.

Spring River is at it's lowest all year but the water is clear. When the trout were on, the hot files have been Crawford's Guppie, burnt olive Woolly Buggers and Y2k's. If you see the fish busting the surface and jumping, tie on a small black dry fly and drag it across the surface as the brown trout have been chasing the midges up through the water and jumping.

The water is clear but hot at White River near Newark with bream fishing being reported as fair on crickets. Bass fishing is also fair using plastic worms. No reports on crappie, catfish or walleye.
