View Full Version : Bon Tempe lake report

I went to Bon Tempe on 10/12/12 and did pretty well. I caught my limit in just under 5 hours of fishing. Tried a couple of different spots with much success. Released the two small trout I caught but took home 3 beautiful trout averaging 2lb each and about 16 to 18 inches. Beautiful day out there saw lots of deer and two bald eagles circling the dam area. Hours fished 7am 12pm. Weather was cloudy with a little bit of wind that kept my bait moving. But man the grass at the bottom of the lake is unbelievable. Every cast I made I would reel in 1/2lb of grass. I remember fishing the lake last year around the time with out every reeling in grass. Bait: power bait pumpkin green was doing the trick. I am thinking about heading up there tomorrow morning but not sure about the success rate after a rain storm. Your thoughts? What is going on with the grass?
