March 3, 2012 – Joe Pool Lake – Bowman Creek.

The water at Joe Pool is still muddy in the lake and in the creeks.  Water temp was 55 degrees.  Walnut creek has been so unproductive, I decided to to go to Bowman Creek near the boat ramp.  Fishing was very slow, but I expected that due to the muddy water.

I caught two bass on a spinner bait near some rocks that have been covered by water.   I paddled down to the bridge and did get any bites.  Saw a guy fishing from the bank with minnows, but he wasn’t catching anything either.

I jigged a road runner in a few bushes on the way back and got a small crappie to bite.  The fishing should improve when the temps get a little higher.

On a side note, I had to get rid of my truck due to continuing problems with it.  I replaced it with a chevy equinox which gets better gas mileage than the truck did.  The hitch installer had problems with the wire connections, so the left blinker on my trailer was not working. I had to take it back to the dealer twice to get it installed correctly.
