Drop shot and Texas Rig producing as always. Took the rental boat out and whacked a HUGE 9.14lb slob with many others in the 1-6lb range. Fish are hitting topwater first thing in the morning. They seem to be eating bait fish actively so pattern accordingly.

High 100-degree weather during the afternoon and around the high 90s throughout most of the day. Water is still very stained and the fish are moving into the shallows. The drop shot and Texas Rig continue to produce the most fish and I saw one topwater fish caught by another angler. Any dark or natural worms have been working best to contrast the water clarity. Use a longer 2-3 foot leader to keep your rig out of the algae and moss. Most fish were around 1-3lbs and caught in shallow flats and coves.

Water is becoming very, very stained. Less than 5 feet of visibility in a few places. The drop shot has been killing it with almost 20-40 fish a day with most fish in the 1-2lb range. The Texas Rig produces less fish but in the better 3-5lb range. Any darker colors such as purple, black, brown or natural colors such as green pumpkin have been working great. Just walk all over the lake and fan cast your drop shot and you should get bit!

Slightly cloudy. Air temperature high 40s to low 60s. Great 20+ feet of water visibility. Saw a bunch of smaller largemouth positioned on beds. Caught a few on a Mattlures Ultimate Gill. All the bigger bass seem to be in deeper waters. Lots of huge trout in Jacks Creek Cove and smaller trout by Pier 1. Most larger bass are only accessible by rental boats at the moment.

Caden ER1 Swimbait FishSaw a lot of bass cruising around all day but hardly any trout. Super clear water clarity with outside temperatures reaching around 84 degrees Lots of small bass chasing bait balls of threadfin shad early in the morning. The larger bass came around in the afternoon. Landed a few on 6 inch Huddlestons, an ER1 glidebait and a Jackall Gantarel in Jacks Cove. Overall the bass were active all day long with smaller fish on beds and the larger ones becoming more and more aggressive.

The water clarity is great at the moment. We found trout schooling by Pier 1 and landed them on both flies and jigs. Anglers were using a size 14 Pheasant Tail with a dropper loop down to a size 14 pink egg suspended under a bobber. Trout were also hitting black Bead Head Wooly Buggers and white/black Slab Jiggies fished under a float as well. The quality of fish was rather decent today with a bunch in the 2-3lb range and a 6lber landed by my friend. The action remained consistent all day.

Outside temperature was around 85-97 degrees. There were lots of trout schooling around Pier Two all day long. Caught a bunch of fish throughout the day on white, orange and chartreuse Powerbait. Other anglers landed tons of trout on brown and red mini jigs. Most trout were in the 1-3lb range with a few 5-7lb class circling the dock. They were actively feeding and hit a crankbait as well. Other trout hot spots on the lake included the buoy line, Jacks Creek Cove and Whisker Bay. We saw some bass moving around in shallow water and managed to land a few on a drop shot with an Oxblood-colored worm. They seem to be easing in to the spawning stage.

Water visibility was great at Dixon Lake as I could see over 20ft. Weather temperature was in the 80-90 degree range. Lots of largemouth are moving into shallows and are starting to make beds by Pier 2 and Trout Cove. Trout are schooling by Pier 1, Pier 4 and the buoy line. Bass were going after umbrella rigs, Deps 175, Huddlestons, drop shot and jigs. Trout are actively hitting white and green Powerbait, orange/white Power Worms and natural/pink mini jigs. Most trout seem to be in the shallows.

Pre-spawn bite is in full effect for largemouth. Bass are making beds, mating and becoming aggressive. Hooked and lost two large bass by Pier 2 on a Mattlures Ultimate Gill and drop shot. Roboworms seem to do the trick in Oxblood, Black, or Aaron’s Pro Magic. Hooked up on one trout on a mini jig in grey fleck with an orange Power Worm trailer.
