FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Shoreline areas of the reservoir contain a light to moderate cover of hydrilla with standing timber quite thick along the creeks. American lotus is also quite dense in the upper creeks.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Largemouth bass are the most sought after sport fish in Gibbons Creek Reservoir. This reservoir has a history of producing numerous largemouth bass larger than 10 pounds. The current lake record is 16.17 pounds. Channel, blue, and flathead catfish are all abundant with catches of trophy blue and flathead catfish quite common. Crappie fishing has been very good in the past but is somewhat slower today. Crappie of good sizes can still be caught in the early spring. Bluegill are also abundant in the reservoir but do not grow to very large sizes.
TIPS & TACTICS
The opportunity to catch a trophy largemouth bass at Gibbons Creek is greatest from mid-January through March. During summer, schooling bass can be found in deeper water over structure. Anglers catch these fish primarily on Carolina-rigged plastic worms. Catfish can be caught most any time of year on a variety of natural baits. For flathead cats, anglers are most successful fishing with live shad.
FISHING REPORT
GOOD. Water stained; 62 degrees; Largemouth bass are good working the calm water of timber, creeks, and coves to find the consistent and catchable bass. Topwaters, worms spinners, crankbaits, and jigs are all worth a chance. Crappie are fair on minnows when using big structures. Catfish are fair on live bait, along with some dough pellets getting deeper every day. Sunfish are fair on cutworms near the bank and in structure.
