FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
The upper third of both arms of Joe Pool Lake is covered with the timber that was left in the lake when it filled. The lower end was cleared, but several large marked brush piles were constructed prior to filling. Numerous flooded stock ponds, bridges, road beds, and other features were left as structure when the lake was built. Hydrilla is found throughout the lake, especially near the dam.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Largemouth bass are the most popular sport fish in the reservoir. The slot length limit is designed to encourage harvest of the smaller bass. White bass, white crappie and channel catfish are also popular with anglers.
TIPS & TACTICS
Largemouth bass are often found associated with hydrilla, pondweed, and underwater structural features. Crappie fishing is good under the bridges that cross the two arms of the lake and white bass school in the lower portion of the lake. Find channel catfish near the creek channels.
FISHING REPORT
GOOD. Water lightly stained; 60 degrees; 1.47 low. Largemouth bass are good fishing shad like crankbaits, skirted jigs, jerk baits, and bladed spinners along channel ledges, vegetation edges, and rocky shorelines. Crappie are good near brush piles and timber on minnows in 15-28’. Catfish are fair on punch bait, cut bait, and chicken liver.
