January 10, 2006 Stockton Lake Fishing Report

Main lake points north of the 215 bridge to the dam are your best bet for walleye; fish the windy points when possible with crawler harnesses or jig/minnow combinations slow drifted. Another good tactic in these areas is slow trolled crank baits; Wiggle Warts, Rogues and Rattl Traps in shad colors will produce some good fish. Before you wet a line, cruise the points or the face of the dam and locate the shad.

The points adjacent to chunk rock bluffs are producing some hefty large mouth bass taken in 20-25 feet of water on black and blue jigs with black or blue pork trailers. Fish the lure slowly, and let it set on a ledge or the bottom for twenty or thirty seconds before moving it again. Deep running crank baits late in the afternoon on chunk rock banks will also produce fish; bass are also being caught in the timber in the Turkey Creek arm and Price Branch. Find a creek bed meandering through the timber and work it with a plastic worm (purple or black) and you'll see some action. As far as crank baits are concerned, your go to bait should be a suspending jerk bait; use the reel, pause, jerk technique and you'll see some action.

Marked crappie beds are the best place to start for crappie; use crappie jigs or jig/minnow combinations. Try the brush piles across from Cedar Ridge boat ramp which incidentally is closed right now.
