October 11, 2011 Joe Pool Lake

Went to Loyd Park for a few hours. Temps were in the low 80’s and the winds were around 5mph.  Put in near the swimming area so I could paddle to the trees on the other side of the lake.  I found fish on my fish finder, but couldn’t get them to bite.

I paddled towards a brush pile that is now visible due to low water.  I caught a small bass and a white bass while trolling around 400 ft from the brush pile using a crank bait.

Paddled back into walnut creek to check the water levels.   The water was a little higher, and the entrance to the creek is now fully passable.  The water was a light brown color, which usually happens after any rain.  It will take a few days for that to clear up, so I didn’t expect to catch anything.

Found a few small crappie and on greenie while looking around. I didn’t paddle to far because the fish don’t usally bite too well when the water is that brown color.  I paddled back past the brush pile and hooked something, but it got off before I could reach my rod.
